Digitising Domestic Work: The AI Appliances Making their Way into Our Homes

We’ve long been swapping out hand-mixing for food processors, brooms and bulky vacuums for robotic Roombas and hand held scrubbers and sponges for dishwashers. While words like ‘artificial intelligence’ and ‘robots’ tend to conjure dystopian, Terminator-like images, the reality is that many of us have already welcomed artificial intelligence or ‘smart tech’ into our homes.

And it’s no secret why. Smarter and faster, AI-equipped appliances are more efficient than many traditional at-home methods and the market recognises this fact. In 2021, the global artificial intelligence market was valued at an incredible US$93.5 billion (A$125.7 billion) and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 38.1 per cent between 2022 to 2030.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
