Inaugural Big Data and Analytics Forum asks big questions and seeks big answers

Tuesday, April 2, 2019

AIRAH is calling for speaker submissions for its inaugural one-day event, the Big Data and Analytics Forum. The Forum takes place in Sydney on August 1. 
 
“The AIRAH Big Data and Analytics Forum has an overarching focus: to improve buildings’ operational efficiencies,” says AIRAH CEO Tony Gleeson, M.AIRAH.

“The use of analytics software to process ever-increasing quantities of data has become more accepted in the built environment. In HVAC&R, we see big data analytics being used in the prediction of maintenance tasks, for building tuning, or even in the management of the defects and liability period for products. Indeed, big data analytics presents an incredible array of opportunities to reduce energy use, improve designs, and drive behavioural change.”

The Forum’s technical organising committee is now calling for speakers on an array of subjects linking the built environment and big data. This includes, but is not limited to:
Case studies of big data applications for the built environment, including property types such as healthcare, data centres, laboratories, etc.
Big data for science and engineering research
Applications and evaluation of real-time big data systems
Utilisation of multiple data sets from disparate systems
Big data for improving resilient infrastructures and creating smart cities
Big data security and privacy
Machine learning based on big data
Complex energy systems and managing data
Lessons learnt from industry adoption of HVAC analytics packages
Improving outcomes from big data analytics
Making day-to-day building operations smarter.
