Smart Home & Dialog Systems 2017


Notes:

Home automation is closely related to the Internet of Things (IoT).  Domotics (domestic robotics) is related to both home automation and domestic robots.  Steve Prior (@sprior) is a good person to ask about dialog systems in smart homes in general, and about his smarthome.geekster.com in particular.
