On June 24, IBM’s Watson Internet of Things hosted at leaders, industry experts and technologists at The Crystal in London to examine how IoT is shaping the way we design, construct, use, maintain and experience the buildings around us. One of the main focuses was the application of cognitive computing to smart buildings.
Nowadays building systems can provide an enormous amount of unstructured data on building operations. The challenge is using available information to improve and adapt building performances.
Cognitive computing may provide a solution to the ever-changing needs of building occupants. As living organisms, they enable systems within building to understand, reason and learn from the data they create. Over time, cognitive systems can even learn from the results of their own recommendations.
