The forthcoming Generation of Smart buildings have in store the guarantee for hidden echelon of improved equipment, usages, energy efficiency, optimization, and comfort of the tenants with the Artificial intelligence. Often times, we tend to imagine a “Smart building” from an angle which does not grab all its details. So in the real sense, what does it depicts and particularly to AI?
Now, let’s come to think of it. In an average man’s imagination, a Smart building might be limited to the set of technologies automatically turning on an air-conditioning as people fills a room, or even switching on/off lights in a used/unused rooms respectively, but in the real and deep term, is this all about Smart buildings? Surely, the answer is NO. A smart building can be measured by how well the indoor and outdoor is analyzed, how the different systems communicate, and how the usage data is aggregated, examined and applied to building performance. Talking about all this, we can only imagine an artificial intelligence at the center. The primary aim towards the invention of the AI is to modify the way we use technology to work out our challenging problems. No wonder Ruggero Altair Tacchi, a lead data scientist at Quid said “A key technological innovation in Artificial intelligence that is aiding to drive investments is the field referred to as deep learning.” What is Deep learning? “Deep learning is a figure of AI that comparatively imitates how our brain understands objects and environments in a chain.
Globally, technology is improving at a very fast pace these days than it has ever been, and like seriously what might be radical today is likely to be out of date in the forthcoming days. One distinct angle or way to imagine a truly Smart building is as a reflection not exclusively of a specific portion of technology but also on the target that stakeholders need to accomplish.
Having understood this, a smart building can be reasoned of as an ecosystem, a lively entity with many interconnected devices of no same type and age that communicates and depend on each another, sharing available resources and reacting to several needs. Key to this multifaceted interaction of hardware and software is the human element. Talking of the human element, we refer to the human input, the superseding “voice,” that offers strict direction and guidance, pointing all other systems toward those goals that need to be executed.
The Impact of AI in Smart buildings
As we might have known, Smart buildings are referred to as “Smart” because they have features which are not present in normal buildings. From the possibility of the creation of virtual assistants like Apple’s Siri or self-driving cars, we indeed can get a sight of the forthcoming days. Artificial Intelligence is being set up for various business applications that have the possibility to be money savers and big revenue generators.
One of the applications of AI is the area of Smart Buildings. Here, AI is combined with IoT; Internet of Things, so as to change the Energy consumption of commercial buildings. Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things provides a passageway to utilizing “big data” in order to enhance building operations, make them efficient by constantly managing building infrastructure.
You would ask, how can AI be used in improving equipment? Now, let us take a look at an urgent need of AI in pipeline operation. Well, it is no news that every single pipeline company in any region of the world cannot escape the issue of equipment maintenance. Since the nature of the business has to do with long-distance operation, challenges relating to maintenance of equipment have always occurred. A constituent of AI, Intelligent agents can keep an eye on the performance of rotating equipment including gas generators, pumps, electric motors, and compressors, and in other instances, even keep an eye on the performance of the pipeline itself. It keeps an eye on the performance of the pipeline by measuring temperature, flow, pressure, and density of the contents of the pipeline.
The least we can offer!
There are several ways in which Artificial Intelligence is being used when it comes to property and ensuring comfort for tenants, making tenants save energy and money. Of course! Challenges within rented buildings are a continuous basis of burden and complaint, to which Facility managers also face.
Companies like GreenMe aim to involve tenants to make smart building smarter.
GreenMe creates and distributes a smart cube that measures and analyzes all the major environmental factors that impact well-being, productivity and building energy performance, while still offering a major innovation: the ability for office workers to express how they perceive their environment. It can for instance help Facilty managers to anticipate dysfunctions in a building.
