Dyson is quietly working artificial intelligence into all of its home gadgets

  • SINGAPORE — In the brave new world of smart homes, Dyson thinks it’s got a way to get a leg up over the competition: artificial intelligence.
  • “Almost every product can benefit from AI, lighting, purification, cleaning — everything that you see in a room needs artificial intelligence,” declared Sir James Dyson, its founder said at its launch event.
  • Sir James Dyson, speaking at the Singapore launch.Dyson’s already started dipping its toes in the connected home scene.
  • My dream is much rather that everything is automatic, and sets itself for you to your preference,” Dyson said.
  • Testing has already begun for Dyson’s new home lighting and fan systems, using face and voice recognition to detect the user, then adjusting its temperature and speed to their precise preferences.

Imagine never having to input a setting again.

On the importance of democratizing Artificial Intelligence

On the importance of democratizing #ArtificialIntelligence, from Keras #DeepLearning blog

  • And you, as an early adopter of deep learning, you have a responsibility to make sure that the opportunities that AI will create are open to everyone.
  • The purpose of Keras is to make deep learning accessible to anyone with an idea and with some basic computer science literacy.
  • There is a lot of hype around deep learning right now, and people sometimes have unrealistic short-term expectations.
  • AI will take time to get deployed to its true potential, but when it does, it will have a long-term social and economic impact that most people seem to underestimate.
  • Making deep learning more accessible should be one of our priorities.
