Dr. Kaku is an internationally recognised authority on physics and predicting trends based on the latest research in science. His book Physics of the Future: How Science Will Shape Human Destiny and Our Daily Lives by the year 2100 was recently named one of the “Top 25 Tech Books” by VentureBeat. This book also spent five weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.
His keynote presentation, The Intuitive Home of 2016: What’s After the Smart Home, will centre around the concept that most smart homes are not smart, but well-designed homes installed by smart electronic systems contractors (ESCs). Dr. Kaku will discuss how the smart home is set to evolve into the fully intuitive home with the help of next-generation future technology such as IPv6, RFID devices and artificial intelligence.
“CEDIA is committed to providing our industry with the data and resources needed to prepare for future business opportunities,” says CEDIA senior director of technology Dave Pedigo.
“As we move beyond the smart home, our members and the industry need to be ready to be the experts on this next generation of technology. Attending this presentation is the first step in that learning process.”
The Opening Keynote Presentation will take place on Wednesday 5 September at 5:30pm in the Wabash Ballroom at the Indiana Convention Centre and is free to attend.
