AI and Computer Vision – Taking SURVEILLANCE to the Next Logical Step...or Not
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are finding their way into many different applications, including video surveillance. When you combine AI with image and facial recognition, the potential for continuous observation increases substantially. For example, in China, this type of advanced technology is being implemented at a national level; as a result it is being tried, tested and improved at an unprecedented pace. The application of these technologies has enabled an unprecedented level of surveillance, both in and outside buildings. This session will examine the latest technology developments and will explore the use cases for AI, image, facial recognition and computer vision in commercial real estate. We will, of course, include a spirited discussion on the potential threats to individual privacy.

Ingress and Egress – A Status Report on the State of ACCESS CONTROL
In today’s uncertain world, security inside a building, especially a high profile one, is of highest priority. Managing how huge numbers of employees, contractors, suppliers, visitors, maintenance personnel and other unique occupants access the building involves challenges to ensure safety from outside threats. There are a variety of technologies and processes to facilitate secure access including physical ID, RFID, hand-swipe, employer card-key, mobile phone, as well as facial and gait recognition. In addition to providing the primary purpose of secure access, there is also the need for tight, safe integrations into other building systems, including destination dispatch elevators and tenant systems. This session will include state-of-the-art conversations on the topic.

BIM vs. DIGITAL TWIN – A Timely Discussion on Building Data Visualization
The idea of visualizing data related to a building is not a new topic. Building Information Modeling (BIM) has been an active discussion for decades, with few organizations taking this concept from the design phase all the way through to operations and maintenance. In the last 24 months, the phrase ‘Digital Twin’ has emerged, advocating for some of the same benefits of BIM. This instructive session will define the differences or similarities between the two, talk about the various uses throughout the entire lifecycle of the property, discuss the realities of integrating visualization engines with various data sets, and bring to light the most relevant, practical and successful case studies surrounding building data visualization.

BUILDING NETWORKS/LANs and WANs – The Foundation for Smart Buildings
The idea of a base building network to provide digital amenities to tenants and visitors, as well as a connection point for a multitude of disparate building systems has come of age. For the most progressive owners and operators, a building network is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. Defining the building network architecture is one of the most important decisions to be made. Fiber, copper, wireless, switches, routers, controllers, firewalls and device connectivity are just some of the technical issues which must be considered. The decisions get more complex as you add more buildings to the WAN and begin to design a connected portfolio or campus. The industries’ most experienced professionals will share their perspective on this important topic.

The Intersection of Two Worlds – The Continuing Convergence of IT and OT
One of the biggest paradigm changes today in smart buildings is the convergence of Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT). Historically, they’ve been two distinctly different worlds and those responsible for building systems have (at best) not had much reason to work with IT, and (at worst) looked at IT as a necessary evil. With the rise of IoT devices in buildings and the evolution of building management systems, IT and OT face the challenge of having to be increasingly technically integrated, which often raises concerns when it comes to skill sets and organizational structure. Organizations who have successfully integrated these two groups will offer their insights to the audience.

A High Priority – Improving Cellular and Radio Coverage Inside Buildings for PUBLIC SAFETY
Most people assume that the public safety radios used by firemen, police and medical personnel always work at all emergency sites. The reality is that these radios often do not work inside buildings due to the design and materials used in the structures. According to latest data from FCC, 70 percent of all 911 calls are made from cell phones. Given the importance of public safety along with the issue of reliable cellular and radio coverage, this issue is getting more attention. While there are options in the marketplace, complexity and cost are keeping adoption from mainstream scale. This session will explore the existing options as well as emerging technologies that are promising to improve this important issue.

Smart Building DIGITAL TWINS – The Industry Weighs-In
A ‘Digital Twin’ is the digital replica of the physical structure. At every stage of a building’s lifecycle, digital information is generated. Massive amounts of information from BIM Models, Asset Registers, Commissioning Processes, IoT devices, alongside facility maintenance & work order data is siloed and orphaned. A Digital Twin unifies these data sources to create first-of-their-kind insights, use cases, scenario planning and simulations—accomplished in a digital environment. Further, AI and machine learning have data lakes with a depth and clarity never seen before. They uncover operation optimization opportunities within the virtual environment that can then be applied back to the physical space. In this exciting session, we’ll hear from building owners as well as supply chain stakeholders who will discuss how they’ve incorporated the Digital Twin concept into design, construction and ongoing O&M.

Building a SMART BUILDING TEAM – Navigating in a Skills Shortage Environment
If an organization is serious about developing or retrofitting a building to exemplify next generation thinking, it truly needs to be a group effort. If every aspect of the building is going to be rethought as it relates to new and emerging technologies, a variety of intellectual capabilities will be required. Once leadership, vision and budgets are established, the work of building a team begins. Internal personnel as well as a multitude of external resources must be assembled to effectively deliver the next generation building. To add to the complexity, this must be done in an environment where technology is changing daily and the required skills are in short supply and high demand. Those with real-world experience in this process will share their perspective and insights.

Planning for AUTONOMOUS Vehicles – Impacts to Access, Parking and More
While the first mention of autonomous vehicles can be traced back to the 1950s, the modern conversation really began with Tesla’s release of the Roadster in 2008 and the ultimate introduction of driver assist and autonomous in 2014. Over the last five years, there have been prognostications of parking lot extinction and the demise of steering wheels. As it turns out, the world works at a different pace than technology and change usually takes longer than expected. Ingress/egress strategies for autonomous vehicles, parking structure configuration options and automated parking are some of the issues on the table. This session will provide a thoughtful conversation on the state of autonomous vehicles and the impacts on building design and smart building functions.

Finally a Metric – How Intelligent is Your INTELLIGENT BUILDING?
While intelligent building and smart city performance measures have emerged in recent years, only limited objective assessment methods and through-life measurement frameworks have been developed so far, and a suitable or broadly applicable classification system has yet to emerge. Despite this, claims about building intelligence and technological capabilities are commonly heard. But without qualitative and quantitative indicators, these claims are opaque at best and misleading at worst. As such the need for a universal Intelligent Building (IB) rating system is receiving increasing interest among building developers, building managers and policy makers. This talk presents the formation of the non-profit International Intelligent Buildings Organization, whose charter is to create a holistic International IB Index based on a framework of indicators and impact categories that can be used to describe and assess smart and intelligent buildings. The development and calibration of the tool has been undertaken by one of Australia’s preeminent universities, ensuring objective academic rigor and a truly global reach for the initiative. In this session we’ll hear from building owners, developers, contractors and supply chain stakeholders about the relevance of this standard for the industry.

An Important Part of the Smart Building Strategy Process – A Modern Approach to the REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL (RFP)
The process of developing buildings has been constantly redefined over the last 50-75 years. Each new project brings new opportunity to rethink the many components that make up a building. However, the level of innovation actually accomplished with each iteration is up for debate. One of the key components is the RFP Process. It is here that ideas are defined and various providers have the opportunity to respond with their capabilities. In many cases, due to time constraints and the fact that building technologies historically did not change fast, many continue to use outdated techniques. This session will focus on historical methodologies in the RFP process compared to new, more digital and innovative approaches.
