As I was scrolling through my LinkedIn feed a few weeks back, I became captivated by a post from Michael McLaughlin, a cybersecurity expert who has been interviewed several times for this blog on various topics. Michael was highlighting an excellent article by Chuck Brooks in Forbes on the impact that Q-Day — the day that quantum computers will have the power to “break the Internet” — will have on the global cybersecurity industry.

Michael’s post began this way: “Think of China’s spy balloon as a giant vacuum sucking up all communications in its path. Encryption protects us, right? Wrong.

Here’s an introduction to Canary Media’s week of special coverage, Home of the Future: How to electrify your life.

The future of all-electric, high-efficiency, grid-interactive homes seems near at hand from the floor of the CES 2023 event in Las Vegas. The massive annual extravaganza has long been the showcase for high-tech consumer electronics, including the latest in ​“smart” home automation systems, energy controls and electric appliances.

Take the home product lineup from global electric equipment and technology giant Schneider Electric, which includes batteries, EV chargers, hybrid inverters and the latest iteration of its smart electrical panel. Much like similar smart panels from global competitors like Eaton or startups like Span, it allows homeowners to monitor and control electricity demands at the circuit level via smartphone app, switch between grid and battery power and keep electrical loads under the limits of household wiring or utility grid service.

Individual Wi-Fi-connected ​“smart plugs” add even more discrete control. Schneider’s CES-award-winning app and energy disaggregation technology from Sense, a startup partner, can help analyze data and automate the actions of all these devices to reduce utility bills, keep homes powered during blackouts or even sell home-generated and stored power back to utilities

Eagle's Nest

An American bald eagle occupies a nest near Kennedy Parkway North at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center on Feb. 8, 2023.

The center shares a boundary with the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, home to more than 1,500 species of plants and animals, and 15 federally listed species.
