HomePod Release Date: Apple May Have Shortages At Launch, Report Says

International Business Times

During an earnings conference call Monday, HomePod supplier Inventec Appliances gave further details about the new Apple device's launch schedule. Priced at $349, the home speaker features a combination of high-fidelity audio and Siri-powered connectivity designed to be an alternative to similar smart home speakers from companies like Google, Microsoft and Amazon. Amazon's Alexa, which debuted in 2014, has become a juggernaut for the online retailer thanks to the Echo series of smart home devices and Alexa's adoption by manufacturers for products ranging from TVs to home appliances. Due to Amazon's success, numerous competitors have entered the smart home speaker market in recent months.


Smart cities using Internet of Things - Practical Applications

#artificialintelligence

According to Kate Meis of Green Biz, "Smart cities are communities that are building infrastructure to continuously improve the collection, aggregation and use of data to improve the lives of their residents by harnessing the growing data revolution, low-cost sensors and research collaborations, and doing so securely to protect public safety and individual privacy." In San Francisco, SFpark uses wireless sensors to detect parking-space occupancy in metered spaces. The connected cars can be tracked via GPS, and drivers can use the car's dashboard to reserve parking spaces in advance, saving time and reducing the waste associated with long searches for parking spots. It's easy to see that cities can benefit tremendously from technological advances that utilize the Internet of Things.


Smart cities gain traction in the west

This company's making it stupid easy to build an Alexa-powered smart home

Mashable

You've got to decide what smart home platform to buy into, and if you want a voice assistant to connect all your various devices, like smart light bulbs, plugs, speakers, etc. The company's new Genie, a smaller and cheaper Amazon Echo Dot clone, connects to all of its own smart home devices effortlessly. "Eufy users should expect a complete line of smart devices in the coming weeks, including smart light wall plugs, light bulbs, and even an Alexa-enabled version of our flagship product, the RoboVac 11." Amazon and Google (and Apple soon) sell the best smart speakers you can buy, but they don't sell you the other parts that complete a smart home.


QA Advances for the Digital Enterprise - Digitally Cognizant

#artificialintelligence

With the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) and smart, connected devices, testing becomes a far more complex and dispersed endeavor. Machine learning bots that analyze test data are touted as the next big thing for QA. For instance, we deployed a robotic QA solution to help a UK energy provider to adequately test its home automation system without human intervention. The bot simulated human actions to test devices in a connected, smart home ecosystem.
