Turning on the Christmas lights in an automated home

Join us in our lovely space as we stream the Lunchtime Lecture live from London. We will have tea/coffee and wifi available in a bright comfortable space. Get out of the office, stretch your legs, and catch a brilliant bite-size talk from experts in data from across the globe.

Over the past two years we have seen swathes of manufacture attempt to bribe us with technology to “make our lives better”. As a result we now have big technology manufacturers competing to be our virtual assistants with smart speakers.

In this lecture lecture ODI Data Scientist David Tarrant looks at how these platforms are competing and producing a confusing set of services and why simple to use open standards are going to be the key to winning in the home automation market.

“OK Google, tell Alexa to ask Siri to book me a place on this amazing sounding lecture!”
