A Look Inside the AI Home of the Future
There’s a great deal talked about the ways in which AI is going to transform how we work and live in the future. Often overlooked is how it is set to transform our homes in ways that will make summoning Alexa to play our favorite music, or tell us the weather forecast, look positively primitive.
Already, major manufacturers are starting to put the tech in place. For example, GE has launched its Smart Switch electric light controls with a whole host of automatic features. So if we take a look at how a typical day may pan out, it will give a good idea of the full potential of AI in the home.
Before we go into the details, it must be said that a modern, high spec house will be better suited to the AI revolution. So now could be the time to consult the Trussle free mortgage broker service. They’ll be able to introduce you to lenders who will be used to arranging home loans even for properties that are still under construction, so you can make all the high-tech changes you want to your new home with the place already being covered for.
So, imagine you’re firmly installed in your new home. The day starts with a gentle alarm that is timed to wake you at the ideal time to tie in with the day’s appointments, which are stored in your personal calendar. The coffee is already on and you can be sure that there’s enough milk because the monitor in the refrigerator had registered you were running low yesterday and added some to your grocery order.
After breakfast, you head out for the day. There’s no need to turn lights off or even lock the door. Your home has sensed that it is now unoccupied and does both of these things automatically.
During the day you are expecting an Amazon delivery, maybe even using its Prime Air service. The delivery bay in your yard will automatically unlock and open to accept the package and then close securely.
As you get into your car to return home from work, your home will start to prepare for your return by turning on the heating, perhaps even starting to cook the evening meal. Already, it will have activated the automatic vacuum cleaner to make sure everything is spick and span for when you get home.
As you enter the home, having opened the door using the retinal scanner, the lights will go on at the perfect level for you and the music of your choice will be playing. Having built up personas for both you and your partner, if you have one, it will even be able to tailor the choice to suit.
Then, throughout the evening, your smartwatch will monitor your blood pressure and temperature and the heating and lighting will be adjusted automatically. Finally, when you go to sleep, your house will too.
All these examples are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to how AI will change the ways we live. And now is the time to start preparing for the transformation . . .
