Tony Fadell has already pioneered the present, first by building the mobile computing group at Philips Electronics before joining Apple where he was responsible for the first 18 generations of the Apple iPod and the first three generation of the iPhone, reporting directly to Steve Jobs.
Today Fadell is pioneering smart systems as founder of Nest, whose learning thermostat exemplifies the intelligent systems which will pervade the future, with 30 percent of all electronics predicted to be devoted to them by 2015, according to International Data Corporation (IDC).
Many pioneering companies are forging ahead with smart systems, but none more aggressively than Nest which offers smart thermostats that do not require manual programming, since the learn their user’s habits as well as provide wireless remote access to a home’s heating, air-conditioning and ventilation (HAV) systems from any smartphone. In his spare time, Fadell is advising several over Silicon Valley startups on how to succeed with smart mobile- and green-technologies.
Predicting the future is always fraught with peril, but the visionaries featured here are boldly going where no one has gone before. http://www.clubmz.com/
I think the underneath reason for David's success is that he has a personal passion for alternative energy and energy efficiency technologies, and constantly looks for ways to encourage widespread adoption of smarter building practices and technologies. He was also a great article writer at http://www.articlekings.net/ company.
In my opinion, It may be worth taking another look at the technology to assess the true value it can provide. Comparing it to Siri and Watson is like apples and oranges. Visit my http://www.affairesinternet.net website.
