Science is the foundation for interoperability and smart communities. Peggy Smedley chats with Ken Calvert, division director for the computer and information science division of the computer and network systems, and Erwin Gianchandani, deputy assistant director for computer and information science and engineering, National Science Foundation, about smart communities.
Joshua Peschel, assistant professor of agriculture and biosystems engineering, Iowa State University, says interoperability has been a problem for a while, and we have started addressing with standards, but as systems grow complex, it is still going to be a persistent, lingering issue.
Peggy Smedley continues the interoperability and smart cities discussion and welcomes guest Mahesh Veerina, president and CEO, Cloudleaf.
Steve Koenig, senior director, market research, Consumer Technology Assn., admits that consumers are beginning to embrace digital assistants and people using them to shop is increasing.
In the final segment, Peggy details her vision of the cars of the future. These vehicles will be packed with conversational AI, V2I (vehicle-to-infrastructure) capabilities, immersive in-cabin experiences, and, of course, will be fully autonomous.
