MarketWatch, May 4, 2021. Caspar.AI uses the whole home as a sensor – already existing elements like sensors on switches and appliances. From automated control of lights, shades and temperature to more complex tasks such as fall detection, the Caspar system works without cameras and without “wearables” such as resident pendants.
A new kind of IoT cloud for distributed AI
The question we’ve been talking about centers on the proper way to create a privacy-preserving IoT infrastructure. Ashutosh has begun to argue that the problem forces you to think in terms of hierarchical scopes: data that lives within scopes, and is only exported in aggregated forms that preserve anonymity.
He also favors distributed AI computations, again scoped in a privacy-preserving manner.
