CES® 2017: The Internet of Things is getting personal – Bosch focuses on intelligent assistants

With the personalization of products and services, connectivity is now reaching the next phase of development.

Devices are becoming intelligent companions that make everyday life easier and safer at home, in the city, in the car and at work.

Bosch is also developing products that are specifically designed to be personal assistants. These can also communicate with their users. One example is “My kitchen elf” – or Mykie, for short. With this concept, BSH Hausgeräte GmbH has stepped into the world of personal assistants. Mykie is operated with the user’s voice. It listens to users, answers their questions, and helps with a number of daily chores. For instance, Mykie immediately knows what is in the refrigerator, how long the cake should stay in the oven, or whether the sun will be shining in the afternoon. With the connected Mykie, the user can control the entire range of Home Connect household appliances.
