    A smarter look inside the home

    A smarter look inside the home

    How much time are you spending at home and what are you doing when you’re there? Have we changed our idea of home and has technology anything to do with it? And where are the business opportunities for companies in the home space, and how comfortable are consumers with them? In this episode of the DockPod, coming to you from Accenture's flagship R&D and global innovation centre in Dublin, we dig into new research on the smart home and its surprising conclusions about why, despite a huge amount of home technology, are homes remain largely tech free. Our guests on this episode include Accenture’s Rachel Earley, who has authored a new report for The Dock called Putting the Human First in the Future Home; Architect, designer and artist Roisin Murphy, who has more insight than nearly anyone about what we get up to behind our hall doors; And Justin Cullen, who is the founding partner of Jolt Esquire and is chairperson of Maximum Media.
