Amazon’s Echo and Google’s Home have infiltrated the home. Next generation models hope to bring vision into the picture with various tactics to introduce a need for a camera. Will the public agree? This has yet to be determined, but if all else fails, there’s always RF-ID! Say you want to know if little Jimmy has gotten home ok, a simple RF-ID tag could give a future release of AI speakers a clue. RF-ID has so much potential, and it’s about time it enters the home. Being able to locate items around the home could be the new way of doing things sans-camera. There’s more intriguing technology coming down the path with a sonar-style WiFi powered 3D image rendering cameras that might be an alternative if plain-jane cameras fail. Being able to see through walls using WiFi can be a really cool concept when trying to locate an RF-ID tag, being able to give you an exact location in a building. You can even blow up the scale to an office building capable of locating personnel around the building. The possibilities are really exciting! Check out business insider if you don’t believe it’s possible. It’s here. Let’s explore it!!!
Mind blown with possibilities!
With AI devices being built with cameras and beginning to enter the home, it’s time we start focusing on what that could mean to different companies. This idea is not going to be free, because the capabilities achieved when using ID secured concept that I introduced earlier can change the world in numerous ways. This one I’d like to be able to take some credit. Feel free to contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss consultation options.
With everyone in the house able to access my echo, I started thinking that it’s about time to start personalizing content. “Alexa, my pin is ****.” She responds with a prompt, “Welcome Tim, what would you like to do?” Simple enough concept. It’s great to prevent family members from racking up my Amazon bill, keep my content mine, and have a parental control over content. The user would either log out, or get timed out. I just think it’s about time to start personalizing the experience Amazon.
Real solutions to real problems
With AI based devices showing up in almost every room in houses, I have began to wonder why makers don’t offer a tie in to emergency services. Say someone breaks into your home. You could simply give Alexa a pin that allows for a direct call to emergency services. If not calls, at least equip it with a panic alarm. There is so much potential just in Echo and Google Home. It’s about time we start looking beyond simple music and news to more solution based roles. Lives could be saved with an addition of a simple skill to the Echo profile. Let’s go developers!!!
