Smart Buildings – Taking Building Automation to the Next Level

Building automation, as a working discipline, has been around for ~ 30 years. By the turn of the century many buildings were equipped with computers/controllers that could connect to the internet and provide greater control over many building parameters (temperature, lighting, access, security, etc.). Those buildings could be considered “automated” but they were not “smart”. Smart buildings are the next phase of this evolution. The Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Machine Learning (ML) are combining to make buildings more dynamic, more adaptive, and more efficient. This article addressees the current challenges faced by building operators and facility managers and how emerging technologies can address these challenges.

Top Data Trends Telecommunication Companies can expect to see in 2020

The shift from simple phone banks to omnichannel contact centers involves the integration of multiple technologies, including artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things (IoT) and cloud computing. The widespread deployment of 5G networks will also enhance the experience of contact center customers, who increasingly expect answers on demand. These technologies will necessarily increase the need for privacy and security in 2020.

Will Robots Usher in the Lights-Out Data Center? •

The idea of using robots to automate data center operations has been the object of years science experiments and proof of concepts. In November, a data center startup called TMGcore demonstrated a robotic system that can replace servers housed within an immersion cooling tank. This ability to swap out servers creates new possibilities in the industry’s long-running effort to create a “lights out” unmanned data center. Which raises a question: Are we on the verge of a new frontier in data center automation?

Machine Learning Technology to Help Manage Energy Operations of C&I Buildings

Verdigris Technologies’ will bring machine-learning applications to ABB’s global line of connected low-voltage switching fabric products to predict unplanned surges in power consumption for commercial and industrial buildings. The electrical equipment, power, robotics and automation company is launching a new digital energy app-store and Verdigris’s AI technology is their first app.
