Sinclair Looking forward to meeting you at Nordic Smart Building Convention 2018.
The advisory board consists of highly regarded industry professionals who advise the Nordic Smart Building Convention project team on strategic choices regarding the concept of the event, such as target group policy, selecting speakers as well as the development of the program.
Sinclair: How do you see the future of building automation, building performance optimization and/or building energy management?
Sundlin: The life of a building and cities will see more transformations and overlaps in terms of ownership and Use. As the boundaries between living, socializing and working become more blurred the opportunities for synergies in terms of operations and energy systems will be greater.
Sinclair: How do you see us going from here to there?
Sundlin: Design built environment as ecosystems. Thinking about building systems as a part of a greater urban vision.
Sinclair: How do you see the role of AI powering building management?
Sundlin: AI will hopefully play a great role in terms of analyzing data and feedback from users and respond more quickly and locally to different needs and demands. Essentially streamlining energy use and experience.
Sinclair: What do you see as the cornerstone of the smart building industry moving forward?
Sundlin: Marrying analytical tools with design tools. Information based design opens up for more creative thinking about building systems early on in the design process.
Sinclair: What topics are you looking forward to discussing at Nordic Smart Building Convention 2018?
Sundlin: The future of energy consumption, production and trading. Scale of systems; Centralized, district, building or individual. How can inhabitants engage with the built environment beyond spatial experiences?
