Artificial intelligence (AI) is impacting every corner of computing and every type of technology on the planet. Smart home technology is no different. AI has been used throughout the smart home for smaller tasks over the past several years. However, the rise of more efficient large language models (LLMs) and AI at the edge – processing AI workloads on the device rather than the cloud – will enable exciting future use cases and experiences.

The smart home as a “smart assistant”

In the age of AI, the whole smart home can effectively become a smart assistant. Today’s AI-powered virtual assistants respond to your voice to perform an action when prompted. However, future virtual assistants will understand when a person walks into the home and then adapt the internal environment automatically based on their preferences. This could be anything from adjusting the temperature or light settings, playing music, managing access to the home, or generating automated grocery lists.
