When the Machines Take over the Buildings

Building automation, building operations and related controls are going to be quite different in the near future: Automation will be less about wrenches and screwdrivers and more about a new vocabulary that includes artificial intelligence, robotic process automation, open edge software, self-managing systems, self-organizing networks, self-optimization systems and self-learning systems. These newer concepts will take some time to understand and absorb for facility owners and staff but in time it will become clear that self-learning systems can be just “another tool for the tool belt”; providing key information for the issues facility engineers are addressing. Attend this session to learn what's needed for higher-level building automation.

Learning Objectives:

1. Understand ways systems need to be smarter, innovative, and sophisticated
2. View examples of systems that can automatically configure and integrate new equipment or devices
3. Analyze where systems can optimize and self-heal
4. Understand how new technologies will compensate and re-configure the system to minimize system impacts
