In 2023, home technology will recede further into the background – even as it takes more control over our daily lives. But people will still have a voice, literally, in how cars work.
Voice activation will become even more ubiquitous and much smarter, with devices asking exactly what we mean. Meanwhile, so-called ambient computing, powered by artificial intelligence, will help our devices and other technologies work better with over-the-air maintenance—think automatic phone or Windows updates on a giant scale .
On the home security front, look for smaller, smarter systems that use robots and drones to protect you. And home entertainment will take on new dimensions as VR, short for virtual reality, and AR, or augmented reality, become less expensive and more accessible.
