Your Home As A Robot

Since the days of the Jetsons, the promise of home automation has centered on the realization of practical robots. As we move forward into an explosion of connected possibilities and the rise of the robot era, what role will robots play in the future of the smart home?

Individualized mobile applications, smart systems and connected devices with siloed functionality are growing exponentially and we are spiraling out of control in an attempt to micromanage the smart home. To truly improve our lives, a smart home must understand physical space and predict human behavior in context, removing complexity and making our lives easier. The key to building a smarter home lies in thinking of the house as a system that can be mapped and predict our intent.
