  25. 25. 25 Smart Healthcare ● As we live longer healthcare costs are rising unsustainably ● Smart sensors and actuators will enable more people to be treated at home under the remote supervision of their local doctor ● Offering better quality of life, better outcomes and reduced costs ● But, we need to rise to the challenges of privacy and security
  26. 26. 26 Smart Retail ● Tags on products will enable more and better information ● Provenance – where was this made, and were the suppliers treated fairly? ● Will I (or a member of my family) have an allergic reaction to eating this food, and what recommendations are there for safe alternatives? ● Help with planning my meals – healthy recipes for those on a budget ● I want to see independent reviews before purchase! ● What other items of clothing would complement this one? ● I want to see how I would look in a given combination of clothes ● Tailor made clothing manufactured to fit me perfectly ● What products do my friends (or the celebrities I follow) recommend? ● Instant check out – no more queuing at the busy sales tills ● Third party services to help my manage my budget
  27. 27. 27 Smart Meters Enable people to learn to reduce their consumption, and lower the cost of their bills. If lots of people do this, we can reduce risk of power cuts from overloaded power grids, and help the environment! Electricity meter – Southern Electric (UK) Gas meter – British Gas
