Proposal to Develop State of the Art Smart Home with Artificial Intelligence August 20xx PageHeader PageHeader A team from AI Now LLC. met with homeowners Melanie and David Nakamura to tour their exquisite home and understand their needs. The following sums up our findings. The Objective Melanie and David Nakamura want to create smart home that doesn’t just wait for their commands but truly interacts with them. They have the following needs.
Link all smart systems to central application that can control them. Provide faster data retrieval of all types of information. Use system that is able to troubleshoot problems and learn what is needed or wanted before being asked. The Opportunity Asa will interface with all smart systems to provide one central entity for the homeowners to interact with. Through machine learning Asa will deduce from experience what the homeowners are most likely to need and want. Asa will track operations of all smart devices as well as the homeowners’ habits and preferences and will alert Melanie and David Nakamura to potential problems and options that have changed or been forgotten. The Solution
Asa the cloud based artificial intelligence assistant from AI Now LLC. can fill the homeowners’ needs. Contract with AI Now LLC. to link to Asa and set up your personal profiles. Link all smart devices in the home and use Asa as central control. Use Asa to provide all information and record all activity for future reference. PageHeader Entrepreneurs and modern homeowners like Melanie and David Nakamura need smart devices that make their busy lives easier and more enjoyable and because they work in the hi tech world and often entertain prospective clients at home they want their house to be showcase for modern technology. They want all their smart devices to work together to control the household environment provide entertainment and information and allow them to order products easily with voice commands or touch screens. Melanie and David Nakamura have already purchased and used multiple smart devices for lighting and climate control security and entertainment as well as hub devices and listening devices including Amazon Echo and Google Home. They have found the smart listening devices to be limited in supplying information and the hubs don’t always work well with other devices or signal the homeowners when something is wrong. Melanie and David Nakamura want system that will learn their habits identify problems and generally make their lives easier.
PageHeader AI Now LLC. plans to meet the following goals and objectives. we are committed to improving and adapting our artificial intelligence programs and services to keep up with the industry Link all smart devices in central network that can be controlled through cloud based artificial intelligence To do this we will compile list of all devices to be connected and controlled and determine the software needed for Asa to monitor and control them all. Set up Asa to automatically control all devices in the home We will do any customized programming necessary to set up our artificial intelligence system to monitor all devices make changes when necessary and to communicate with homeowners Melanie and David Nakamura. Monitor the project Our engineers and technicians will continuously monitor the project to study how well it serves the clients’ needs and to see how Asa is learning. Adapt and improve as needed Asa is both research project and service for clients. We can expect rapid change in technology in coming years and we are committed to improving and adapting our artificial intelligence programs and services to keep up with the industry. Summary Your commitment to our service will help in the continuing development of artificial intelligence.
PageHeader The modern world cannot function without the internet. Internet connectivity and functionality is no longer an option in business education or everyday life; it’s absolutely essential. Consider the following. People interact more often over the internet now than in person We’re not talking about just online dating but also interacting with friends and family through social media and conducting business meetings and communications over the internet. Most electronic devices today can use internet connections With modern cameras and microphones and the ability to connect variety of smart devices to computers all sorts of data are constantly being uploaded and transmitted through the internet. Even the field of medicine is being revolutionized by the ability to connect wide array of medical testing devices to computers and transmit data to doctors. Most information is accessed via the internet now Printed information is expensive and nearly impossible to keep current. All modern teachers and students and commercial enterprises rely on the internet now for most of their information. The internet is becoming the primary source for entertainment and purchasing Although individuals still go to movie theatres and concerts those same individuals usually first seek information about movies and music from the internet. They watch and listen to video and audio there and purchase tickets or download products on the internet. huge proportion of all shopping is accomplished over the internet now with even advance orders for groceries going online now. This saves consumers travel time and often saves money too as consumers can easily compare prices and see what is in stock before visiting store. PageHeader Can machine ever be considered intelligent. If it can store data sort remember and retrieve information learn to predict future events and make plan for the future it certainly can. But personality counts too. Asa shows off its intelligence and personality in the following ways.
Asa accesses the entire internet in flash to find your information Many smart devices are programmed to act only according to specific instructions and can provide only the information stored within their programming. Asa listens to all your words asks questions for clarifications if necessary then provides answers for you. Asa points out discrepancies and errors in information Asa not only finds data but analyzes it for you. For example many businesses keep standard information static on their web sites and list temporary changes on their Facebook pages. If you ask Asa about the hours restaurant is open it will report the standard hours but also may tell you that according to the restaurant’s more recent update on their Facebook page the restaurant is currently closed due to kitchen fire. If statistics in survey don’t add up Asa will tell you that too. Asa can track the operations of hundreds of applications and devices Asa is an omniscient manager for your home or business. Asa can read much of the code that controls linked devices so it not only can tell you that specific device has malfunctioned it can probably tell you what’s wrong with that device too. Asa records and learns Learning is truly the hallmark of artificial intelligence. Asa remembers sequences of events in your house so it will query you when there’s variation. This can alert you to something you forgot or to problem. Summary Asa processes and analyzes information in flash and it learns from experience. It’s state of the art example of modern artificial intelligence. PageHeader
Asa is prime example of machine learning which essentially means that Asa can learn on its own by processing data. What can you expect Asa to learn. Common sequences of questions and tasks For example if you have asked for restaurant’s hours and then made reservation at that restaurant Asa will remember that. The next time you ask about restaurant’s hours Asa will provide that information and then ask if you’d like to make reservation. Omissions and additions If you commonly subtract or add items Asa will remember that. For example if you order Cowboy pizza without onions but with extra cheese the next time you order pizza Asa will ask if you want to subtract the onions and add extra cheese. Individual preferences Asa can learn to distinguish between users and keep track of what each user prefers. For example if Melanie has ordered lemon cookies and David has ordered chocolate chip just tell Asa "Order Melanie’s cookies" and it will verify that you want lemon. Your terminology You don’t have to learn Asa’s language; it will learn yours. For example the first time you tell Asa to "Turn down the heat " it may ask if you mean the hot water temperature or the household thermostat. When you clarify that you mean the thermostat Asa remembers and will assume that’s what you mean the next time you ask to turn down the heat clarifying only with reply like "Reducing thermostat temperature five degrees." Summary Asa’s ability to learn is what makes it the perfect assistant for you. PageHeader
AI Now LLC. created our Asa system to be versatile. It has been used in variety of environments with multiple applications. Scientific Asa has been vital part of many experimental programs where Asa has kept track of large volumes of data and aided scientists by asking questions and pointing out anomalies and statistical errors. Commercial Asa is strategic element of many commercial processes. It can process massive amounts of data point out problems tell managers when key pieces of equipment need replacing or when an employee is not on the job. Asa has even suggested more efficient ways to accomplish tasks which saved companies money. Residential With the rise of Amazon Echo Apple HomePod and Google Home Asa has learned how to interface with these consumer products. Asa can fill in the gaps providing the capabilities the devices lack such as ultra fast search and retrieval of information and memorization of everything users have done. Notes Because Asa learns it can be used in almost any situation. After using Asa at home you may find you want to try it in your offices too. PageHeader Asa’s extensible programming allows it to be compatible with most electronic devices that can be connected via wireless network. Asa has experience in communicating with the following common smart devices.
Google Home Amazon Echo Alexa Apple HomePod SmartThings Products Z Wave Products Wink Products
