Smart Building Automation Evolution from Ethernet to Emotion

Tue. January 15| 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM | B311

Our BAS evolution is closely coupled with the internet.

What has changed in the 20 years of the Internet? Cost is down; speed is up, everything has an IP address, the Internet has become clouded with powerful microcomputers that are out on the edge, self-learning and sharing their intelligence with everyone – and everyone is continuously connected.

This is 20th year of providing education sessions at AHRExpo and during that period a lot of evolution has occurred. Brad and I will pull from this evolution timeline the significant events and milestones that are like to be part of our next 20 years. Brad joined the evolution at the halfway mark so provides a different a new perspective on our history.

We will share takeaways from the Helsinki Head Shake event and our recent 20-year industry journeys, all digitally documented. We will discuss the crest of change now coming with digital mindfulness, building emotions, and self-learning edge-bots.

Instead of trying to make humans more technically savvy, make technology more human. Come and join us, it will be a fun and a great industry discussion providing insight and generating a new conversation.
