Falling in love with Smarter Buildings
In episode one of the series we talked to Tommy Hagenes who came from the building
automation side and is working with Smart Technology and is a driving force in
the Proptech space. We talked about what he is doing, what the differences were
with APIs, BACnet introduction, secure communication to and from the building
and that BACnet still has its place. It was a great episode and I remember
laughing and learning a lot. It ended with us discussing if building
after the episode:
building automation systems be in the cloud?
logic reside on the edge?
will 5G and distributed intelligence, small footprint AI-algorithms have to do
in a Smart Building setting of the future?
is the ultimate connectivity strategy to create sustainable buildings with a
software/hardware layer that can pass the test of time?
we need a decoupling of hardware and software?
“AI is not a magic wand; it is not Terminator; it
does not mean dystopia; it is just a tool. Treat it as a tool designed to make
lives simpler.” - Garry
- Dealing with inevitability
In episode two of the Beyond Buildings Podcast we
talked to Chris Hallendy and Chad Ruch from Resolute Building Intelligence on how they solve problems for customers. They
are using the ecosystems approach to some extent, and leveraging the Niagara
framework and Honeywell systems approach. We talked about what is going on in
today’s landscape, what AI means in the context of building automation, getting
data in and out of buildings and also about the data-strategy side of things.
Resolute has spent millions on setting up a robust cloud infrastructure to
support their customers and I remember that I brought up the edge strategy side
of things as well.
after the episode:
will distributed and edge intelligence affect cloud spending and cloud
to start with crafting a data-strategy?
is a good time to start with AI and Machine learning? (yesterday)
can building infrastructure be designed to pass the test of time?
future companies be software companies that just happen to do real estate?
are the drivers for change in this industry and how to align with where the
world is going, as well as where customers are right now?
episodes were recorded “a long time ago”. I don’t know about you but I learn
something new in every meeting I have and what was right 6 months ago, should
definitely be right now as well, but the context just keeps getting larger and
Digitalize my asset with the legendary Tyson Soutter answers a lot of these questions
above and newer episodes that haven’t aired yet will cover most of them.
Especially more about digital twins and a natural way of utilizing modern
technologies like 5G, AI, ML, edge and distributed intelligence, in a way that
people can understand. And not only understand, but also allow them to work in
their respective silos, but with a shared context.
reason why I read everything is because my role is to advise decision makers
and companies what the world is going to do a month, a year, a decade from now.
I try to have a holistic understanding of what is needed to stand out from
competition, in order to better advise on pros and cons, and be the strategy
partner for both technology and organization-advice in a Smart World
Environment (Construction/Industry/Smart Buildings and Cities).
reach out if you have any questions and comments or if you have any ideas on
what I should write next!
