My Air Conditioner: The Authoritarian
Smart devices make our lives more convenient by responding to our desires, but is that really smart? As energy resources dwindle, we must design networked devices to make sustainable decisions for society. In this talk, we will challenge today’s attitudes towards energy consumption and our limited definition of a smart device. We'll explore how Authoritarian Objects not only respond to human whims but also to information from our infrastructure – moving us away from unlimited energy demand.
