The power of smart environments is to deliver integrated automated outcomes, gather critical usage analytics and use machine learning tools to optimise future outcomes.
It starts with simple, intuitive control for all the different audio visual technology in your environment. Combining all you devices, lighting and systems onto a single interactive tablet for control.
However just as the touch screen replaced the mouse, so now are Alexa and Siri replacing the touch screen with voice command. This new audio interface for controlling digital information unlocks the potential for a whole new relationship with the devices around us.
Take this one step further and we remove the human interface entirely. With concierge robots like Pepper, we can have the robot recognise you, talk to you, present the media experience and provide the feedback loop without any human intervention (see our vimeo channel!).
But it is the advent of IOT sensors that is really enable us to create intuitive environments. Smart spaces that know your preferences, understand your movements and second guess your requirements. Beacons that can automatically tailor your experience as you move around a space, RFID transmitters that can automatically communicate your preferences. Facial recognition to provide feedback on your emotional responses.
Collecting and analysing all the system data from these type of interactions creates invaluable patterns that our A.I engines can use to create dynamic environments, where inter-operability between devices creates intelligent outcomes, without the need for proactive human interaction.
