    Title: Move over smart buildings, cognitive buildings are here & are disrupting your business

    Abstract: The Internet of Things is here and is changing how we build, manage, and experience buildings. Cognitive computing enables the systems within your building to understand, reason, and learn from the data the systems create. Merge the two and you have Cognitive IoT which brings smart homes and buildings to a new level of intelligence. Cognitive IoT enables buildings to understand the baseline for how they operate, to reason what is normal and abnormal behaviour, and to learn and provide you with insights on how buildings can operate more efficiently. Introduce the preference of people who use these buildings and see how this influences energy consumption and the performance of assets. With this knowledge, the building can optimize individual comfort and energy consumption, and operation and maintenance teams are informed on asset health and condition. Attend this session to get an overview of how businesses are using cognitive insights to build scalable solutions and disrupting their market.
