The Smart Life is a podcast looking at all things Smart Home and IoT. From the latest tech to the bigger questions around the role tech has to play in our lives, each episode, hosts Jess and Thomas will be joined by industry experts to break down the news behind the headlines.
This episode, Thomas and Jess are taking a deeper look into the opportunities and dangers of smart home, IoT, and other technological developments impacting future generations. With guests Adam Williams (Lightwave) and Nikesha Davis Shanks (City Farm Systems), the episode covers everything from the changing nature of technology in education, our right to privacy, and the social gap and elitism driven by who can afford to interact with technology.
Jess & Thomas are joined this week by Natalie Wathan from Schneider Electric to discuss the opportunities the smart home presents to help an ageing population live independently in their homes for longer, ensuring they're safe, connected, and healthy.
Jess is joined this episode by Daniel Bastone from Airthings to explore the impact that smart home and wearable technology can have on our health and wellbeing, as well as the importance of data, privacy, and what the future holds for our home lives.
Hosts Jess and Thomas are joined by Caroline Laurenson, Managing Director of TL Tech, and Kris Gamble, Director of Customised Ltd to discuss how society can harness smart home technology to deliver and improve care within the community. We also take a look about how far the industry has come, but also the challenges that retailers, manufacturers, designers, and policy makers need to face to improve the lives of everyone, no matter the type of care they require.
