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 center around the concept that 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.
