Project Sustainability

Each month, the show welcomes a new guest who will unpack a specific topic, spanning multiple episodes. Host Peggy Smedley will dive into her guest’s desire to provide alternatives that will empower each of us on what it means to have a healthy home. Simply all the innovations from energy, air, water, lighting, security, appliances, and more that impact our homes.

With a focus on technology—and how it works in the home—listeners will gain a deeper understanding of what’s coming next and what’s already possible today. Determined to give a glimpse into the future, Smedley ends every series with the same question: How can we do even more simply by managing our energy consumption to help make the world healthier, safer, and greener today and for future generations?

Peggy Smedley and Diane Cook, professor, Washington State University, talk about the data that can be acquired by sensors in our home and the CASAS Smart Home project. She says her background is designing machine learning techniques, which are computer programs that learn patterns from data.

They also discuss:

  • Three different areas of machine learning in the home.
  • The difference between supervised learning and unsupervised learning.
  • If smart home tech is readily available for consumers today or if it is still in the research phase.
