Modern buildings are equipped with thousands of sensors recording air quality, humidity, motion, temperature and the presence of noxious gases. The sensors continuously record energy consumption and waste. Smart algorithms running on networked computers analyze sensor-generated data in real time.
The advanced instrumentation generates sophisticated building performance statistics that are displayed on information dashboards. The workforce needed to make informed and smart decisions from the treasure trove of sensor-generated data needs to be both building-science and data-science savvy. Such workers are in very short supply.
