IB08: Introduction to Semantic Modelling Applications for Building Services and Systems

Richard McElhinney, Chief Software Architect, Conserve It

Information interoperability has become the latest buzzword in building services and property management sectors. Before this, new entrants into this market were talking about semantic modelling and tagging of data. These new terms are defined and discussed in this session as well as an in-depth look at one of the leading open source community based technologies leading the charge to open up our buildings and provide value from the information traditionally locked away in them.

The goal of such technologies is to streamline the processes of working with massive data sets from the modern world of IoT. Homes, buildings, factories and cities are all affected by this new deluge of information and technology trends are consistently demonstrating that it is now cost effective to not only make use of this data but to look for more opportunities to understand it better. By standardising methods of modelling systems and defining services that can be consumed by other systems it makes the job of unlocking value from such systems much easier and provides normalised access to data being generated from devices that are encroaching more and more on our daily lives.
