The predictive power of smart devices
In the future smart devices will observe everything we do at home. Digital assistant Athena takes this a step further. Based on information from social networks and telephone messages she knows exactly what members of the family did, are doing and are planning to do. The big question is: can Athena create its own reality and, in doing so, create its own awareness?
