COPENHAGEN, Denmark – Swedish furniture giant Ikea’s Denmark-based innovation lab Space10 is currently surveying people about what they would wish to see in a hypothetical virtual assistant. Ikea may be considering embedding its furniture with artificial intelligence (AI) in the future.
Ikea and Space10 say the goal of the research is to simply learn how people “feel about AI”. But with the company’s growing reputation for high-tech solutions, like wireless charging tables and smart lights, it wouldn’t be surprising to see AI in Ikea furniture in the future.
