IEN has been invited to give a talk entitled "Smart Building: Buildings that learn". While sophisticated building management systems are becoming common place, most are not used to their full potential. Moreover, non-optimal control strategies often remain in place for years on end with adverse effects to energy efficiency and occupant comfort. With this presentation, we are asking the question: Wouldn't it be great, if buildings could learn? This way, the buildings can optimize themselves without depending on a building operator.
