Why innovations need to begin at home

Watch this TED talk to find out how IBM Master Inventor Dr Andy Stanford-Clark designs practical solutions for the home.

This video explores how design thinking can solve real problems in the home.

IBM Master Inventor Dr Andy Stanford-Clark talks about an energy-saving project in the Isle of Wight that helped pull people out of fuel poverty.

Stanford-Clark’s home-energy monitoring system was used to demonstrate how a small housing estate saved money by having energy-saving devices retro-fitted in their homes.

Stanford-Clark believes that the Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to connect people and things to make the planet smarter.
