Cortana is the intelligent personal assistant for Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10. Now it is making its way up towards the internet.
Lately, Johnson Controls, a company that creates buildings, efficient energy solutions, and next generation transportation system presented a smart thermostat with Cortana built in.
The efficient Cortana thermostat is called GLAS. It can detect your presence in the room and can also detect what air quality you’re breathing in. This thermostat has a touchscreen display that lets you check the air quality, energy usage, calendar, and temperature. The Cortana voice assistant makes GLAS even more interactive and much cooler than the competition.
The Windows 10 IoT core devices allow smart appliances with screens to run Cortana. You’ll be witnessing such intelligent devices with Cortana built in anytime soon.
