Guest spot at Bits vs Bytes podcast – The future of AI, AR and All Things Technological

To control this ‘digital twin’ we also created a physical controller, shaped after our office building (KBF). This is the KBF-controller. Please note: I wrote this article…

AM:Innosurance – De rol van verzekeraars binnen het Smart Home ecosysteem

De potentiële impact en implicaties op en voor verzekeraars van smart home lijkt groots, met mogelijkheden om schade in, om en aan het huis flink te reduceren. Consumenten lijken van hun verzekeraar te verwachten deze (r-)evolutie te verrekenen door het verlagen van premies en te komen met slimme waardeproposities.
