Tech Talk: AI and Machine Learning – A New Tool for Operating Buildings
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning have actually existed since the 1950s. Early activity slowed by 1966 and an ‘AI Winter’ prevailed until 1997. More recent AI events include Siri’s introduction in 2011 and when DeepMind Technologies’ AlphaGo program beat a human in the landmark Go championship (2017). While many industries are waiting for the ‘killer app’ for AI, the technology is certainly making its way into our everyday lives. Whether it is a front-end interface like Amazon Echo or a back-end data analysis algorithm, the world’s most sophisticated companies are integrating this technology into their business plans. This Tech Talk will bring attendees up to speed on the general aspects of AI and include a focused look at adoption in the built environment.

Tech Talk: LOCATION BASED SERVICES – Maintenance, People-finding, Wayfinding and Beyond
Location Based Services have increased substantially in importance. The idea is simple: our phones communicate our location, and that information allows for a number of new services to improve operational efficiency and safety, and to create unique occupant experiences. Managing a maintenance schedule and resources, getting people to their destination, connecting with people based on proximity, as well as head counts during emergencies are just a few of the potential applications. All this efficiency and experience must be balanced with consumer privacy. This important session will present the multitude of applications for this technology as well as the potential for unintended consequences.

Leveraging LED Technology – Creating a Visual IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE
Everyone these days is talking about creating an ‘experience’. Office, retail, hospitality and mixed-use projects are looking to go beyond traditional design and amenities to attract, engage and retain occupants and guests. Water fountains and artwork are being augmented by digital experiences to entertain, excite and inspire. This trend started with flat screens on walls and has evolved into a much more sophisticated experience. LED walls – embedded into traditional design, combined with high resolution, visually stunning changing media – can change the entire experience of a space with the touch of a button or command from an algorithm. This exciting segment will showcase examples of the technology that can be utilized in a Corporate environment.

Tech Talk: CHINATECH – Understanding the Potential Ramifications and Implications
China has long been very good at taking a product designed elsewhere and perfecting it with their hyper-efficient production processes. Over the last five to seven years, the skills and capabilities within the Chinese technology sector have risen dramatically—some say they have actually surpassed that of the United States. Alibaba (commerce), Tencent (Social), Huawei (Telecommunications), Hikvision (Surveillance) and others are racing to be technologically dominant by 2025. This has implications for all business sectors including Corporate Real Estate and Facilities. Equipment supply chain analysis, cyber, privacy, competition and other issues are quickly rising in importance. This Tech Talk will provide a foundation to better understand the rising prowess of ChinaTech.

IWMS, data warehouses and lakes, as well as integrated point solutions all promise to deliver a seamless flow of relevant and accurate information. This powerful segment will showcase those organizations that are on the forefront of delivering a successful Enterprise Architecture strategy.

Inside Google – An Innovation Culture Encompassing Real Estate Development
Day Two will open with a one-on-one conversation with Mark Golan, VP | COO, Real Estate Investments and Development. Long considered one of the world’s most innovative companies, Google’s culture inherently embraces big disruptive ideas. In most organizations, change is addressed but usually follows way behind other business metrics such as profitability and market share. At Google, finding the next big idea is as important as any other business goal or objective and this drive for innovation is manifested in its Real Estate Development group as well. District energy systems, new mixed-use communities, augmented virtual reality and sustainable transportation solutions are just some of the innovative approaches Google has at its disposal to help transform the way they design and build new places in the Bay Area.

Tech Talk: NET ZERO BUILDINGS – Pushing the Bounds of Energy Efficiency
Most owners and operators are satisfied with 10-15% reduction in energy. Any improvement in operational costs is considered a win. However, there is a small yet growing group of individuals and organizations in the marketplace that have set the bar extremely high: Zero Net Energy (ZNE) consumption. Exceptional design combined with state-of-the art technology is resulting in buildings that effectively produce more energy than their need to operate. Sustainable, next generation onsite energy production, hyper-efficient building automation, low voltage applications, Power over Ethernet (PoE), LED lighting and other emerging technologies are being used to dramatically decrease the energy consumption of a building and will be highlighted in this Tech Talk.

Corporate Real Estate Digital Transformation – CHANGE IS HARD
Not too long ago, the office where you worked held the tools you relied on: your desk, a file cabinet, a conference room and office equipment. Fast forward to 2019 and all that has changed. The new norm is people on the go with mobile devices, information in the cloud, video conferencing and digital collaboration. The new ‘office’ is influencing the way we use space: always connected, smart, immersive, with ever-changing technology. It is one thing to talk about digitally transforming a company and quite another to implement the successful smart workplace. A spreadsheet culture combined with ingrained habits and an established culture makes change very hard. This session will address the challenges of implementing real change and the secrets to success.

Video began with analog devices that recorded on VHS tape. Then these devices became digital, which gave us the ability to apply image processing and livestream. What if video cameras could actually interpret what they’re seeing and derive deeper context that triggers appropriate actions? For the past 10 years, the industry has been applying video analytics to time-based and spatial events to recognize patterns, but more recently we’ve evolved these devices to the stage where sophisticated graphics processors can apply algorithms and machine learning to literally tell us what they’re seeing. In this exciting session we’ll explore some of the technological advances and new use cases for this advanced technology.

VIRTUAL & AUGMENTED REALITY – Impacts to Design, Operations, Experience and Beyond
VR and AR technology has been around for a number of years. In the earliest announcements and demonstrations, the images were slow, blurry, cartoonish—and in most cases ineffective. Over time the technology has slowly gotten better and more industries are using it to enhance and speed up many processes. In the Corporate Real Estate and Facilities industry there are various uses for this technology: new and existing space design, facility tours, data visualization, equipment maintenance, scenario planning and others. This world-class panel of AR/VR experts will provide an industry update sharing state-of-the-art technological advancements as well as a discussion on leading edge case studies found within the built environment.

Tech Talk: DIGITAL TWINS and Corporate Real Estate Information – Navigating the Hype
One of the most popular topics in the last 12-18 months has been Digital Twins and their potential in the built environment. Visualizing information in a virtual environment makes for easier understanding and better decision making. Whether it is design concepts, construction changes, operational processes, asset management, wayfinding or other creative applications to visualize building data, the opportunities are endless. With all the great ideas there are still issues keeping this from more mainstream adoption. Data collection, integrity, integration and cost must all be taken into consideration. This informative session will demonstrate current state, best of class, and a leading-edge case study.

Drones have been mainstream for over five years and have found their way into many consumer and business applications, from assisting lifeguards in offshore rescues to providing aerial insights to a number of industries. In recent months, air rights regulations are being addressed and we are preparing for drone package delivery. Given the rise of activity, it only makes sense to apply this technology to the maintenance and operations of corporate buildings. Roof inspections, energy audits, traffic analysis, emergency response, and package delivery are just some of the applications found within Corporate Real Estate.

The App for Buildings – Delivering the Optimal DIGITAL OCCUPANT EXPERIENCE
We have all become accustomed to orchestrating our lives from our mobile devices. We order from the car, purchase tickets, make reservations. Today, we can also locate parking, get through security, call the elevator, order coffee, schedule a yoga class, turn on the lights and adjust the temperature in our workspace. In the last 36 months, there has been extraordinary activity focused on the digital side of the Occupant Experience: app development. This growing phenomenon has also generated a great number of issues: build vs. buy for the most successful application; security and privacy; complex integrations; and landlord vs. occupier roles and responsibilities.

Convenience & Efficiency vs. Surveillance – Defining PRIVACY in Highly Connected Buildings
We carry one of the most sophisticated sensing and data gathering devices in our pockets: the mobile phone. Now building systems are being designed with sensors, microphones and cameras to increase their usefulness. For the first time in history, humans and devices will all be connected to a singular, integrated network—while data analysis platforms such as AI and Machine Learning are being applied to these massive data sets. Fundamentally, this means that buildings will be smarter, more efficient and engaging than ever before. However, it also means that surveillance capabilities will expand exponentially. Our world-class panel will discuss all the obvious (as well as unintended) consequences relating to privacy in the built environment.
