"Telco Innovation at Home"

(Vortrag im Rahmen der "MPI Distinguished Lecture Series" in Kooperation mit dem Fachbereich Informatik)

Connectivity services have been the focus of tremendous innovation in the recent past. The majority of such innovation, however, has primarily targeted mobile devices, despite the ever growing interest around home services. In this talk I am going to describe different types of innovation that I consider interesting for residential users and why they have or have not succeeded. The fundamental question is “What does it actually take to create interesting, novel user experiences for residential users?”. In the talk I am going to focus on constraints, but also opportunities that could create meaningful value added services for the place that we love to call our home.
