There have been a lot of posts over the past few months about AI and using tools like ChatGPT and Google’s Bard. Most of those posts have been specifically about using these tools to do things like writing marketing content or scripts for videos.
But this contest is about using your imagination in terms of what artificial intelligence of the future might mean in your home, or in your real estate transactions. And this challenge isn’t about technology - it’s about the addition of intelligence to technology.
The Ring Doorbell is often called AI, and while there may be some small use of machine learning at this point it’s mostly just a technology solution. Basically, it’s a device that is hooked up to your WiFi network and when motion is detected or the doorbell is rung, the device sends a notification to your phone (also through the WiFi platform) and you can talk to the person using the same link. It’s a technology product.
Now, let’s add some imagined Artificial intelligence to the system. The Ring Doorbell sees someone walking down the street who looks familiar to it, and as they get closer, they realize it’s your friend Kat. They immediately contact you on your phone with a message that says, “Hey, Kat is coming up the driveway. Would you like me to let her in and get the coffee started?” Or perhaps it would say something like “Kat is coming down the driveway and I heard you arguing with her yesterday. Should I tell her to go away?” Or perhaps it sees someone that it deems suspicious nearing the house and automatically turns on the audio of a huge dog barking.
That adds a level of intelligence to what is now just a connected device.
So this month’s challenge is as follows:
Provide one or more scenarios of how AI might change your home life or your real estate business in the future. Explain your rationale in 300 words or more and add at least one photo. Some starting thoughts might be:
Your electricity usage is tracked by AI and you are reaching your monthly limit. What might happen? Are there benefits of this type of tracking?
You aren’t feeling well and you hook up to your in-home AI device after verbally telling it you’re not well. What might the device do?
Could AI be used to alert you to, and perhaps correct, issues with your home appliances, electrical or plumbing systems?
Could holograms show houses to buyers?
Your doctor told you to lose weight and when you go to the grocery store you grab two bags of chocolate bars. What happens at checkout?
Don't stop there! There's no wrong way to participate in this challenge. The more "out-there" the post, the better!
Write one post of 300 or more words with one or more photos by midnight EST on June 30, 2023. Include a link to the post below in the comments. You will receive 1,500 extra points for participating. Happy Imagining! Have fun with this one!
