Trend Summary: Here's a glimpse into the future as the era of the smart home looms before us.

The fridge tells you what’s inside and you place your order and start focusing on cleaning, telling your your Google Home to pick a cooking playlist while you enjoy the few minutes of reprieve, knowing that soon your groceries will arrive via drone delivery.

This is the world of the smart home – a world of incredible convenience and connectivity. These innovations set us free to do what we really want and need to do – work, play, relax, socialise – and reduce the tedious time spent on chores and errands.  

As exciting as these changes are, they’re just the beginning. This same desire for convenience and connectivity is driving the global push for smart communities – cities and towns powered by data analytics and the Internet of Things.

Using artificial intelligence, sensors and automation, they will maximize productivity, streamline and strengthen public services and increase sustainability for citizens, communities and companies alike. And they’re coming soon – according to research from the Consumer Technology Association, the global smart city market will be worth more than $34.35bn come 2020.

... offline service providers.

Says Ms Jourova: “EU consumer rules should be respected and if companies don’t comply, they should face sanctions.

However, she concedes that “Some companies are now making their platforms safer for consumers; however, it is unacceptable that this is still not complete and it is taking so much time.”

Facebook, however, claims that it has worked with EU authorities to make changes to its terms and to ensure greater transparency. It said further updates of the terms were planned later this year.

“We have long had tools in place to inform people about content removals and intend to expand these tools later this year,” claims a Facebook spokeswoman.
