A new generation of smart household appliances will use cutting-edge artificial intelligence to slash energy bills and water use.

At a trade show in Berlin last week, manufacturers including Bosch, LG, Miele and Samsung showcased the latest technology that will make dishwashers and washing machines cheaper and more eco-friendly.

Experts say energy efficiency is set to be the most important factor for shoppers replacing big-ticket appliances over the next few years.

Rising energy costs especially in Europe – following the Ukraine-Russia as well as environmental pollution – is causing manufacturers to re-think designs of appliances.
