A smart water bottle that does way more than it needs to
It works double duty not just as a vacuum but as a mop too, which doesn't leave behind a soaking wet floor. All you have to do is attach the mop unit to the vacuum and set your preferences. Its motor offers 2000pa suction power while its noise reduction air screen helps it run much quieter than previous models did. It's also smart enough to vary its suction when it needs to. For example, when the vacuum goes from hardwood to carpet, it can detect the change and increase the suction to pull dirt from deep within the fibers of the carpet. … [Read more...] about Get your floors in order with over $175 off the Roborock S6 Smart Robot Vacuum Cleaner
This is the problem with tech. The same issue applies to consumer IoT devices. People are replacing things like doorbells and light switches and thermostats -- things that traditionally had a long lifespan -- with things that may be dead and obsolete in a few years. The fact that this comes hot on the heels of the backlash to the "Recycle Mode" isn't good news for Sonos, and feeds into the narrative that Sonos is cash-grabbing and looking to sell more speakers. … [Read more...] about Why is Sonos dropping support for older speakers, and does the reason hold up?

AI can help keep enterprises on top of these shifts. Morvan calls the type of AI best suited for supply chain management as "cognitive automation," which is essentially extremely scalable AI that can "process terabytes or even petabytes of data." Such a platform can execute "thousands of Google-like data crawls a day across any number of internal or external systems, then aggregates and normalizes that data in what's called a cognitive data layer. There, AI and ML algorithms are applied to produce recommendations on optimal actions to improve supply chain speed and cost-efficiency," he states. "In effect, cognitive automation takes over the slow, difficult and unscalable data collection and analytic work traditionally done by human supply chain practitioners, often in Excel spreadsheets." … [Read more...] about Artificial intelligence works its way into supply chains
