The Future of Smart Buildings in the Cognitive Era

Peter Hodgins
AP Watson IoT EAM Executive
IBM Corporation, Sydney

Cognitive IoT enables buildings to learn how people use them, to understand their preferences, and to help people understand how this influences energy consumption and the performance of assets. Based on this knowledge, the building can optimize individual comfort and energy consumption. Operation and maintenance teams are informed in relation to asset health and condition. The talk introduced how cognitive technologies, from machine learning to augmented reality, enable scalable solutions that will change how we see and interact with our buildings.

On their own, smart technologies are compelling innovations, but they are best understood and appreciated when considered in specific tall building applications. Therefore, this session focused on tall building case studies showcasing smart technologies, including IBM’s IOT headquarters in Munich and Dublin, and Sky Tower in Auckland.
