This Conversation on the Future of Business is brought to you by SAP & MIT Technology Review Custom In responding to a question of this nature, it’s easy to pit human intuition against data, comparing and contrasting their relative strengths and arguing in favor of one over the other, the way one might argue for art over science.

Insight-Driven Innovation

But while taking sides on this important issue generates interesting and passionate discussion, it fails to take into account a basic truth about decision-making: humans seamlessly combine instinct, gut, experience, and data in nearly every decision they make, both personal and professional.

Generally, industries are defined by what the organizations within them produce (e.g. automobiles, pet products, small appliances). The dumb state of the smart home. Shane Dyer is surrounded by a dozen or so home appliances made by a dozen or so different manufacturers. In his hand is a smartphone running a stylish app that can speak with every single one of them. It can turn on and off a series of light bulbs, check in on a smoke detector, and even change the temperature of a nearby fridge. It's a delicate, beautiful vision of the utopian smart home, and one that could hardly exist outside of his carefully crafted world.

But inside his utopia, Dyer is smiling. 12 Of The Best Ideas From CES 2014. I’ve been to the Consumer Electronics Show more times than I’d like to admit.
