Artificial intelligence has come out of the smartphone and into the real world, to embrace, once and for all, the macrocosm of the Internet of Things both inside and outside the home. We see more and more thermostats, domestic appliances, lighting and security systems learning to use sensors and algorithms to understand the behaviour of those who use them in order to make improvements. Among the domestic environments that over the coming years could radically change as a result of the influx of the Internet of Things, the kitchen occupies one of the top places.
And when we talk about the kitchen we can’t not talk about domestic appliances. Not just intelligent, but also smart and social, the latest domestic appliances simplify work in the kitchen in a very practical way, thanks to devices that allow appliances and services to be interconnected to create safe and efficient environments from an energy point of view. Ovens with cameras inside them to monitor, even from a distance, how cooking is proceeding, controllable at a distance to start or end the cooking of an entire dinner so you can find it ready when you get home and refrigerators that with a couple of taps on their opaque surface, become transparent and let you to look right inside without needing to open the door, have now entered our everyday lives.
