2017 conference – “Let’s phygital”

The meeting’s aim was trying to define the level of spread of technology in the domestic environment, paying special attention to the user’s new housing needs. Starting from the data from Politecnico di Milano and under the guidance of Giulio Salvadori, head of the Internet of Things Observatory and of the Smart Home department, the introduction of the IoT in the home environment was analyzed. Paola Marazzini, agency director at Google Italy, helped in describing the digital scenario of the next few years, which will change the way we live at home. From smart appliances to smartphone-controlled systems: these are the technology innovations to newly built houses. The direction is towards “tailored technology” helping us in our daily tasks.
