Across all industries, organizations are rapidly embracing generative AI. Among them, makers of home appliances like fridges and ovens. Generative AI in your oven? Why not? Ater all, AI has been creeping into our homes for years (think smart lightbulbs and Alexa) – but thanks to generative AI, these interactions will become even more human and more personal.

Imagine, for example, asking your washing machine whether it’s safe to wash a beloved item of clothing on a certain setting – literally, asking it out loud or via an app. Or you could say to your fridge, “Hey, when am I going to run out of milk?” and it’ll tell you. Integrating generative AI into everyday products could lead to a new era of smart appliances that are not only more adaptive to our needs but also more interactive and engaging.

    Sounds cool but what’s the catch? How is the consumer being used and/or screwed this time? I would to embrace new tech but nowadays, companies always seem to be planning some bs.

      (honestly I can also see the AI fad as a little less “extract more money” and more “make the investors think we’re doing something so they A. don’t lose their shit and B. think we’re high tech”)
