Understanding AI’s Potential for Sustainability: Smart Homes and Energy Justice
Event Description

Smart home technologies, coupled with advanced algorithms and AI, have the potential to transform not only our domestic lives but have significant effects on future markets, technology and innovation patterns, and sustainability challenges. This seminar explores both the promise and perils of these emerging technologies, examining important topics that include justice, vulnerability, gender, and social attitudes and awareness. It points to the urgent need for better policy behind the technology, and it also illustrates how not all emerging smart home innovations will align with important climate and environmental goals.
