How phone-apps thinking could transform the homes of the future

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

At the moment, broadband infrastructure stops at the entrance to the home and services within the home are more or less glued on. Technologies don't talk to each other and services within the home often need their own proprietary infrastructure, resulting in unnecessary cost and complexity. This significantly limits the range and usefulness of services that can be provided over the broadband connection. UK 3.0 aims to transform the delivery of public and private services by bringing together a new ecosystem, facilitated by standards-based smart-home technologies, products and services, and serving every home in the UK within the next 10 years. Having a standard platform within every home will allow even micro-business to develop many new and valuable applications and services, supporting: Improved safety and security; independent living for those who want it; reduced energy expenditure; enhanced societal participation. UK 3.0 is bringing together a consortium of Government, the construction industry, financial institutions, application and service providers and all other agencies needed to deliver this powerful vision, delivering a net benefit of £100 billion per annum to the UK economy from 2019 onwards. Richard Foggie, Assistant Director Electronics Innovation in the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, will present an overview of the initiative and learn from you what value you could add and how UK 3.0 might support what you are doing.
