Smart meter is an advanced energy meter that measures energy consumption in residential, commercial and industrial facilities with additional information related to the power system. This paper aims to review system functions of the latest smart meter technology which incorporates Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI). The paper also proposes future smart meter with some modification and improvement of AMI technology by introducing Artificial Intelligence Metering (AIM) techniques where the energy consumed by consumers' appliances is fully supervised by AIM. The AIM function is almost the same as AMI technology, but with some enhancement including schedule of various appliance usage by customers, PV integration and power quality monitoring. These modifications can facilitate consumers to manage their energy usage wisely, meanwhile promoting green technology to the community.
