The world has come a long way to what it is today. From the days of sending a telegram to the loved ones to accessing information from the World Wide Web in the late 20th century— we’ve seen it all!
Technology has evolved the very things that we do on a day-to-day basis. It’s the only emperor the entire World bows down to! And with the development in the horizons of the AI, VR, and AR, life has been completely redefined.
Within a few years, everyone will have Bots for home in their living spaces. Technology will have won over the human race completely. We will soon be embracing a pool of devices, various software and technologies to help with everyday chores.
From running your garage door to calling emergency medical services, internet bots can help simplify our busy lives. The computing power is increasing over time with the emergence of big data analytics and AI.
No wonder soon, we will be living in smart homes, and that will consist of a network of intelligent software devices also known as ‘homebots’. The software bots will be able to not only streamline our daily routines but, also connect with us emotionally!
What Can We Expect From ‘Smart Homes’?
You can understand the concept of a smart home through the Central Nervous system of our bodies. A central component will be at the core of the entire framework.
Soon enough, homes will be equipped with a network of homebots to perform a myriad of different tasks. Each will have its specialty. Some could be shared or personal, while others being invisible or tiny in size and not in near sight.
Homebots can be of varying nature; offering different roles. While you may be able to run your garage door with a GarageBot, other homebots can perform the simplest tasks, such as reading out your day’s schedule. You can even use internet bots to regulate the shower temperatures for your morning wash.
People will see as homebots as domestic managers, life coaches, accountants, and personal companions.
You can expect a range of internet bots with different and tailored functionalities. We can keep a lookout for bots that perform the tasks including but not limited to:
- Calling emergency help
- Keeping track of your diet and sleep routine
- Tasks management
- Event planning
- Updating social media profiles to help you focus on other things
- Managing healthcare and insurance claims
- Financial planning
- Providing first aid medicine advice
- Anxiety & Stress management
- Providing tech support for day-to-day operations
- Travel planning and managing vacations
Bot Software Platforms
Apple, Google, and Samsung are the frontrunners of bot software platforms, and we will see these Techgiants infusing newer functionalities. They have already contributed extensively to AI technology, but there’ more to come.
We will see the creation of platforms that will provide higher integration levels. Users will be able to connect a pool of intelligent devices to form a tailored homebot network. The platform standards will dramatically develop, and grow— with go-to connectivity and easy-to-use hardware.
MYRIAD PRODUCTS & SERVICES
Just like we have the iOS and Android contributing to platforms with a multitude of mobile apps, we will see an increase in homebots.
Engineers will design and develop pioneering bots for home that will offer and connect a range of products and services. With the likes of Alexa of Amazon and Siri of Apple, more companies will emerge to develop their bots engineered with AI.
Reliable & Trustworthy Technology Will Prevail
Many research studies have been carried out in Japan and the US to observe consumer behavior towards homebots. Much to the surprise of researchers, it was observed that homeowners had readily adapted to the AI-enabled bots.
People were seen using and enjoying homebots for a wide range of tasks for day-to-day use. From the daily commute to simple domestic chores, people of all ages have sought the help of homebots.
But the most interesting aspect of the study is the governing element of this adaptation: trust.
Yes, trust and reliability!
The studies have shown that the most determinative factor for adapting to smart homes is trust. Consumers have been put at peace by the steady and reliable performance of the homebots.
Once trust is established between the consumer and the smart bot, more devices, such as printers,are expected to be reached out. People are steadily relying more and more on AI technology and prefer having their routines streamlined by someone dependable.
And to establish and grow the level of trust, engineers will have to design homebots that are more than automatons. Humans are created to feel and absorb emotions. It’s our innate nature to feel things and channel different emotions. That’s why we need more personalized solutions!
The Arena of Unyielding Competition
We need to understand that there will be an ever-growing competition in the dimension of smart home technology.
Competitors will be relentless in leveraging almost every variable that they can get their hands on. Companies will have to put up their best game to win over the trust of consumers. And prevail in the arena of a very competitive landscape
Engineers will have to develop techniques and skills that can design high-performance bots much more efficiently than before.
