LAUREN is a human smart home assistant. Artist Lauren McCarthy will visit your home, deploy a series of smart devices and watch over you remotely 24/7. Lauren will control your home for you, attempting to be better than an AI, understanding you as a person. You will be able to interact with her by calling her name, but she will also do things for you without being asked to. She will learn faster than an algorithm, adapting to your desires and anticipating your needs.
