Re: Donation
srufolo, Oxford could do a lot of good with that donation, I suspect. I don't remember being at Oxford, but I remember the Mathematical Bridge at Cambridge.

Re: Smart home
Interesting to read that "Starry's platform and architecture can deliver broadband for less than $20 per home passed," and getting to a very large number of homes makes it seem that it should be a profitable venture. I wonder how that $20 compares to competitors or is that a nice rule of thumb number for most?

Re: Donation
Yes, who cares how Blackstone's Stephen Schwarzmann earned the bulk of his wealth. I think his donation to Oxford is admirable and is greatly needed considering the significance of AI in today's world. There is nothing unethical about Oxford accepting this donation. People seem to always find something bad in something that is meant to be good.

Starry, Starry Night
Starry's endeavor to deliver broadband for less than $20 per homes passed can really help in rural areas. But with all this talk and attention being paid to rural communities, what's taking so long to get them sufficient broadband?

Re: Smart home
It makes sense that smart home automation revenue will increase to $54 billion in five years. I don't think any new homes being built today will be without smart home automation. My sister's entire kitchen is IoE-enabled in her new home.

Smart home
It makes sense that other countries are leading in smart home automation adoption since it they have a shorter deployment timeline and less hurdles to overcome. If only the U.S. could see the benefits of less red tape and hurdles for technology growth and expansion.

Donation
Mr. Schwarzman's donation to Oxford, in my opinion, should be applauded. Oxford may seek additional donations to staff the buildings that Mr. Schwarzman is funding. The ethics of AI is an interesting topic. Perhaps it will become a crucial topic in years to come. AI may be delivered via broadband, rather than generated locally, on-premises.

Re: Part of the Problem
Of course you are right, automation has already arrived to the home, industry and many more places. However, home automation is still in its infancy. I think I mentioned at some point or elsewhere that I experienced a fully automated Samsung Home. Well, that is home automation! Samsung said it's yet widely available, only in South Korea you can get all the marvels I saw for home autamation. But it's all on its way. :)

Let's hope that this is not just an aspiration--but will remain the reality.
