Kumar, the incoming Dean for the Engineering school at UPenn, was quoted:
“The Internet of Things today is a lot about Fitbits and Apple watches. But tomorrow it will be the things that run homes [and] schools, reason about the world, take actions, and we will interact with them at a very high level.”
“Now wearables are so personal and intimate and they try and work with your life. You have to have a very good understanding of human behavior — what a human wants and needs — and be able to design that.”
Mangharam is quoted in the article:
