August 2022 - "Preparing for AHRExpo 2023"
Help us curate the messages our industry wants to take to Atlanta
Our August theme is “Preparing for AHRExpo 2023” in Atlanta. Help us
curate the messages our industry wants to take to Atlanta, our 23rd
year of Education Sessions
The AHR Expo
provides a unique forum where manufacturers of all sizes and
specialties come together to share ideas and showcase the future of
HVACR technology. Since 1930, the AHR Expo has remained the industry’s
best place for OEMs, engineers, contractors, technicians, facility
operators, architects, educators and other industry professionals to
explore the latest trends and applications and to cultivate mutually
beneficial business relationships. The event is co-sponsored by ASHRAE
and AHRI, endorsed by many industry leading organizations, and is held
concurrently with ASHRAE’s Winter Conference.
In discussion with the industry all acknowledge that the conversation
has changed. We need to regroup and present strong unified
messages to our followers and the public. Much of what has changed is
the scope and the subject of our purpose. Covid has made us remote
repurposing our buildings while moving our focus to ensure healthy
environments in the buildings. We have redefined and recreated the
purpose of our original automated temperature control systems to
provide a better digital experience both on site and remotely.

We need to discuss what is the "Metaverse" and what it means to our
industry. AutomatedBuildings.com was born and grew up with the
"Internet" or "World Wide Web" and several other names.
Our next version of AB2.0 will have the same experience with the Metaverse or whatever it is finally called.
Sourav Metaverse : Move beyond the hype
From the birth of the Internet to current times, we have seen
disruptive changes across all industries that the Internet has touched.
It has redefined everything: business, education, entertainment,
sports, and healthcare, to name a few. It has transformed and changed
how we interact through various social networking platforms. We live in
an exciting era of change, and in fact, we will witness another
Internet inflection point - the Metaverse.
Although it is in its early stages, the Metaverse will change how
people interpret and interact with technology and themselves. Some
define the Metaverse as a virtual world platform that allows people to
interact. Some relate it to virtual reality and describe it as Web 3.0.
This article views it as a broader term that seamlessly connects our
physical world with several virtual world platforms using existing or
More on metaverse;
replace the phrase “the metaverse” in a sentence with “cyberspace.”
Ninety percent of the time, the meaning won't substantially change.
TO HEAR TECH CEOs
like Mark Zuckerberg or Satya Nadella talk about it, the metaverse is
the future of the internet. Or it's a video game. Or maybe it's a deeply uncomfortable, worse version of Zoom? It's hard to say.
It's been nearly six months since Facebook announced it was rebranding to Meta and
would focus its future on the upcoming “metaverse.” In the time since,
what that term means hasn't gotten any clearer. Meta is building a VR social platform, Roblox is facilitating user-generated video games, and some companies are offering up little more than broken game worlds that happen to have NFTs attached.
Some history The
metaverse is here, and it’s not only transforming how we see the world
but how we participate in it – from the factory floor to the meeting
room. Take a look.
