Ken FeaturedControlTalk NOW guest interview with Ken Sinclair’s who discusses his April 2016 Automated Buildings Theme, which was “IoT Disruption Transforms and Opens Industry.” Ken tells how steady march of technical advances that have impacted our industry over the past 40 years might be cyclic in nature because they sometimes look familiar. “Transforming and Opening the Industry is a journey, not a destination, and will require consistent and constant attention.”

Therese.001Therese Sullivan (VizLore Interview) How Will the IoT Create More Intelligent Buildings? VizLore platform is physically divided into two computational strata: a) Edge Computing is applied and distributed across connected devices and networking elements. It enables tactical data processing and serves to improve service resilience. b) Cloud Computing: Orchestration of distributed computing and service integration across the edge devices happens in the cloud, as well as more strategic oversight and workflow control. VizLore soft sensors and analytics derive insight and value from data sources that range from occupant personal devices, building infrastructure, and public-domain information.
