IoT (Internet of Things) is an intelligent network system that many objects we use in our lives are created by communicating with each other, connecting and sharing information among them. There are great expectations and predictions about the increasing use of technology in homes, cities, businesses around the world. By 2025, around 75 billion devices worldwide are estimated to be connected to each other.
We will examine the development of IoT technology, which has a very large area, in the smart home environment. As devices such as Google Home, Alexa and Amazon Echo become more common, the conversion for the smart home industry is also accelerating.
What smart houses provide us, what we buy from us, let’s take a different approach to this technology;
1. Data Security
We shared our digital information with social networks, websites, and applications. The data privacy and security crisis that Facebook has experienced has emerged as a result of this sharing.
With smart home technology, we will open our offline data to the online data world. We will share what we do with our daily routine behaviours, how we like our coffee, what we do at home, what diseases we need to follow, and what we do to improve our comfort area. In the event that this data is in danger, the loss of this technology, whose purpose is to provide us with a more comfortable living space, may be more severe than sharing social security information.
The physical and personal information kept on the Internet will also be open to the attack of hackers. For this reason, ensuring security and confidentiality will become a fundamental problem that will shape this sector.
2. Artificial Intelligence vs Human Brain
This thinking system sounds good and comfortable to you. Your house;
-Orders what you need at home,
-Before you come home, your tea, your food, your home heat is being adjusted,
-Closes the curtains when it gets dark
-Does your home ventilation exactly the way you want it,
-Even in case you forget to unplug your iron, it can disconnect the electricity in the socket.
So what are you doing? Or is this human being consciously prepared for this transformation? A lot of the little things that follow are keeping the human brain alive, improving, giving organization and programming skills. But there is a house that does this for you now. In this case, where do people go towards, where do they gain from activities that will further improve themselves, or is it a habit to slow down and make lazy brain development?
If you don’t watch Wall-e movie, I would definitely recommend it. The transformation of people into adapting to the intelligent system is described in a very striking way.
3. Physical Security
Smart home technology will become necessary in the fight against crime. Even if you are not at home, you will be warned in an unexpected situation where you can watch your home. Even if the system can not reach you, the police will be able to provide direct information.
In this way, many crimes will be prevented and your physical and property rights will be protected.
For smart home technology, refrigerators are one of the most frequently cited examples of products that can order directly from markets. Or fast-food items such as toilet paper, detergent, etc., are orders that intelligent homes will give to markets. What will be the future of marketing when your house learns and applies your wishes? How will companies promote their products to you, or will they try to convince the communicators that machines with artificial intelligence like refrigerators instead of humans?
With the adoption of this technology, a more economically and environmentally conservative structure can be achieved. Optimum use of electricity and other sources can be achieved in houses under the control of appliances. Deterioration or disruption to any device can be avoided at the initial stage without incurring significant costs and creating new trash. This is a positive expectation for both the home economy and the environment.
These examples can be duplicated. But beyond all of this, the important point is that as our lives become digital and technology become more intelligent, people will become lazy and stupid? While we sit all day in our place, everything will be done by robots and artificial intelligence?
Crazy genius Elon Musk speaks outside of what we know about technology. His latest statement ”Tesla’s extreme automation was a mistake. Human power is underestimated. ” inwraps people. On the other hand, artificial intelligence presents a world beyond the digital futures that are portrayed by everyone, the dangers of ideas, the notion that flying cars are not the future of automotive, and the need to quickly build on Mars.
To be clear, I am closer to Elon Musk. In our current perspective, the future is shown as a world where everything is digitized, robotized, and a lot of things are directed by artificial intelligence.
However, we are not aware of the chaos that all these will bring and we find artificial intelligence technology to be ‘’too’’ excellent. -we’re making mistakes-
Let’s remember for a very short time, there were many imaginative technologies such as flying cars in the early ‘2000s in 80’s films, but we saw that the change took place in different dimensions. We live close to the chaotic environment created by the digital socializing of our lives and we continue to live. (processes starting with The Arab Spring )
In short, let us continue to talk about new technologies and follow them, but let us be prepared for the new chaos that these technological EXPERIMENTS and STUDIES will bring our life.
