The Bulb as the Network — Lunera’s Vision for Ambient Computing
I joined Lunera earlier this year to lead the company in a different direction with new thinking. We hired top Silicon Valley talent, reset the company strategy, and changed our engineering philosophy, morphing from a traditional LED lighting company to one that can catalyze change and realize the promise of a new compute paradigm and new IoT infrastructure network.
The industry has gone from believing the computer is the computer, to understanding that the network is the computer. Today, we’re at the cusp of another shift, one that has the potential to be even bigger: the network is everything around us. Until now, no one conceived the light bulb – and century-old invention – as the platform for ambient computing.
Fundamentally, we’re setting out to change how people think about problems and how they approach solutions. We see today’s devices and services evolving from just things into a state that surrounds us, into a platform that informs us, an intelligence that empowers us, and an ambience that transforms our every interaction and experience. The limitless potential of our vision for ambient computing, however, is not solely ours to own. Rather, it will come to life through our partner ecosystem so that the unimaginable becomes attainable.
Personally, this is the most exciting time of my career. During this time, I’ve experienced a lot but nothing like the potential of what we have in front of us. This is just the beginning. The beginning of a new era. The beginning of our own journey. I firmly believe that together with our ecosystem partners, we are perfectly situated to realize the promise of ambient computing.
