The Shifts (Aka, Trends) That Will Impact the Future of the Connected Home

As the technology world continues to grow, it is challenging everyday social norms. You can perform just about any task with the click of a button. But is this growth in technology, and the subsequent Internet of Things, really improving people’s lives?

Through a combination of cultural, technological and business trends, Kevin will speak to the shifts/trends happening at home for consumers. What’s working? What’s not? And how can the physical and digital play together in order to understand the needs of people and meaningful impact – and improve – their lives?
