Impacts of IoT & Artificial Intelligence on Lighting Applications

I expect that applying IoT to lighting will increase the share of controlled lighting versus the manual switched substantially. The first focus for AI in lighting will be to remove (or ease) the commissioning effort, and make sure the resulting quality in control remains high throughout the life cycle. More impact to be expected from big data cloud connections that provide useful information on user preferences, usage schedules and the alike, helping to achieve more qualitative and user oriented results. I consider the more SciFi type of results often referred to when talking of AI as less attractive for lighting applications.
