Microsoft is considering hands-free smart home systems for Windows technology

A new Microsoft patent reveals that the company is working on an autonomous smart home system for Windows devices.

According to technology news site Windows Report, this “multi-device cross-experience” will be powered by artificial intelligence. This allows connected hardware to communicate with each other via “advertisements” without direct user input. Advertising in this context does not refer to literal commercials, but rather to signaling. Gadgets on the system constantly communicate with each other and trigger actions when criteria are met. For example, an electric car may send a notification to the owner's smartphone or laptop letting them know that they have left the door open. Or you can transfer calls from one device to another.
