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.

@commi44534 Indeed, we should not allow ourselves to be overtaken by machines.

The MDU market continues to face fierce competition among service providers due to tech-savvy residents (i.e., millennials), demand from building owners and management companies, plus the favorable economics of bulk contracts. However, no MDUs are the same, so service providers must use multiple technologies and inconsistent deployment models, increasing operational complexity and rollout costs.

The MDU market itself is evolving as residents adopt smart-home technologies, generating rising demand for smart apartments with built-in connected thermostats, keyless entryways and doors, and video doorbells. This evolution presents both new challenges and opportunities. In other words, service providers must consider innovative service-delivery strategies to compete and win.

In this Broadband World News and ADTRAN webinar, Kurt Raaflaub, Head of Strategic Solutions Marketing, will highlight emerging MDU broadband Internet trends and challenges. In addition, Kurt will outline the next-generation service creation and delivery platform, built on open standards, that allows service providers to connect millions of underserved MDUs, enables creation of user-driven services, and reduces operational complexity and costs.

Plus, special guest, Alice Lawson, Broadband and Cable Program Manager for the City of Seattle, will discuss Seattle’s B4B-Build For Broadband initiative that addresses best practices in planning for MDU telecommunication infrastructure.
