PLDT Highlights Responsible Use of Smart Home Tech and AI at the PH Digicon 2023

Smart home technology has become part of our day-to-day affairs. You will be surprised that there are home appliances like washing machines and refrigerators that are now WIFI enabled. Personally, I like smart lighting that reacts instantly with every movement detected. Other devices that helps us live a healthier lifestyle such as a smart watch that tells us to stand up when we've been sitting for longer hours. But how do we really apply these high-tech appliances and smart home living to our lives?

As PLDT ushers in the transformation of the Philippines into a Smart Nation by enabling the creation of Smart Cities, the conversation inevitably turns to the Smart Home and various consumer applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Advancing further in terms of adoption and usage, Smart Home and AI continue to headline conversations on digital transformation and breakthroughs in the tech industry. These were among the highlights of the recently concluded Philippine Digital Convention (DigiCon) 2023 presented by PLDT Enterprise at the Marriott Grand Ballroom.

PLDT FVP and Chief Information Security Officer Angel Redoble reiterated the PLDT Group’s commitment to ensure the cyber security and safety of customers. 

In a DigiCon session called “Family Perspectives on Smart Home and Artificial Intelligence”, PLDT brought together thought leaders on technology and parenting, and emphasized the importance of fostering meaningful connections and responsible use of technology.
