We get started off speaking about Matter. Williams says that so far the roll out has been slower than anticipated which has certainly impacted adoption, but he hasn’t lost hope for the typical. He also explains how Matter may well impact experienced integrators. Through our conversation on generative AI he discusses how Good is making use of AI presently and exactly where he’d like it to go with generative AI. Nevertheless, he cautions that privacy of customer information and corporate information is a true concern when making use of generative AI, so he’s hunting for much more conversations about how providers deal with that.
