... you’ll need to buy.

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.

... cyber-security.

According to Luka Crnkovic-Friis, chief executive of Peltarion, a Swedish AI specialist: "AI-powered chatbots will continue to get better at conveying information that can help consumers make better, more informed purchase decisions."
