Based on her book ‘Smarter Homes: how technology will change your home life’ author and designer Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino will speak about the relationships between people and technological advancements that have shaped our home lives and what this latest trend of ‘smart homes’ tells us about the future

ODI Fridays are free lunchtime lectures for everyone. You bring your lunch, we provide tea and coffee, an interesting talk, and enough time to get back to your desk.

We talk about smart homes as if they had already become a reality but for many they are a worrying trend towards data being hoovered up for advertising purposes elsewhere.

Based on her book ‘Smarter Homes: how technology will change your home life’ author and designer Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino will speak about the relationships between people and technological advancements that have shaped our home lives and what this latest trend of ‘smart homes’ tells us about the future.
