Sarah Cooper - Amazon Web Services, Inc., Mountain View, CA
It took powerful hardware platforms to enable the ecosystem that turned mobile phones from communication devices to personal assistants, shopping portals, gaming consoles, and so much more. Connected products need a similar transformation from individual actors performing essentially the same function just better to an interconnected backdrop of data driving dynamic device collaboration proactively building consumer experiences, i.e. ambient intelligence. Are recent advancements in embedded AI, security, remote management and end-to-end tools enough to drive ambient intelligence or do we need more?
