75F Team's "Deep See" project helps Alexa See

By Kelly Huang on May 14, 2018 11:49:17 AM

75F Machine Learning Engineer Madhushan Tennakoon and Software Intern Myat Mo created a program together called "Deep See," originally developed as part of the 4th Annual IoT Fuse Hack Day. Deep See utilizes the intelligence of Amazon's Alexa to help you see. Madhushan and Myat presented a track on Deep See at IoT Fuse Conference on May 3rd, 2018. It fascinated a lot of the audience who attended their presentation; however, with any live demo comes the risk that something won't cooperate. We were thankful for the forgiving audience that waited patiently in anticipation. So, we decided to film a brief video segment of the Deep See demo at the 75F office and share it here for everyone to be able to experience this amazing passion project by Madhushan and Myat.

Employee Productivity And The Smart Building

By Gaurav Burman on Feb 21, 2018 4:33:24 AM

Every day I talk with facility heads and facility managers from different companies. We talk about their plans and aspirations for their facilities. We talk about bottlenecks in achieving these goals and the possible resolutions. We talk about making the shift from investment-laden facility management to contributing to the company's bottom line.

One topic that comes up over and over again with most of these facility managers is 'building a work environment that makes employees productive and healthy.

From Reactive to Proactive: A Shift in Smart Building Technology

By Gaurav Burman on Sep 12, 2017 10:53:33 AM

 

With rapid advances in technology, buildings are no longer perceived merely as brick and mortar. Organizations are beginning to rethink the role facilities play in achieving their sustainability goals, optimizing their workforce productivity and improving employee health.

Modern buildings can gather millions of data points that capture real-time information about occupancy, temperature, humidity, and air quality among many other measures. Intelligent data analytics empower these buildings to make occupants more comfortable and productive at the lowest cost, while managing energy and operations more efficiently.

But that's just part of the story. By applying the right set of tools, we can pull powerful insights from the vast amount of data garnered from a building. We can see patterns, we can build a model, and we can predict. We can make your building management predictive and proactive!

How Building Automation Can Save You Time and Money

By Michael Moriarity on Aug 9, 2017 8:44:41 AM

A building automation system (BAS) can be capitalized upon in just about any building, including retail stores, restaurants, commercial real estate, industrial buildings and warehouses. Proactive, automated building management is enabled by predictive technologies that provide the capabilities of remote scheduling, monitoring, and control of building equipment and lighting.

"...The building as a whole will perform most efficiently if all the building systems are controlled as a part of an integrated system. ...Well-designed control systems can increase building efficiency up to 30% without the need to upgrade existing appliances." — U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), 2015 Assessment of Energy Technologies and Research Opportunities
