Using Artificial Intelligence to Lower Operating Costs & Environmental Impact

Did you know 45% of a building’s energy is consumed by the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system, and 30% is typically wasted? Artificial intelligence (AI), the transformative technology being used in a growing array of industries -- from automobile to healthcare to retail – is also a powerful tool for municipalities and schools. A self-operating technology, AI optimizes existing HVAC systems to reduce energy consumption. AI-driven HVAC operations can also help mitigate the potential spread of pathogens and improve air quality. Join this session to learn ways in which AI can work within your municipality’s or school's facilities.
