Venue: Charlotte Convention Center - West Wing
Room: 209AB
The annual investments in R&D on Artificial Intelligence are immense, ranking into billions on a global scale. The results of these innovations are gradually reaching into the realms of Real Estate and Facility Management. One of the first proponents of the use of AI has been discussed for some time now: predictive analytics. Beyond these types of applications of AI, we now see new types of software applications emerge which incorporate the use of AI and Machine Learning. Interesting types of applications emerge around the principle of speech recognition, which allows software developers to design completely new principles of interactions with users: not by touch but by voice and other means. In this session we will explore what is happening today in ‘no-touch’ applications and how that can be applied in our field or RE & FM.

Learning Objectives/Outcomes:
Identify key principles of Artificial Intelligence
Understand the principle and role of Machine Learning in AI
Examine how involvement of AI leads to new generations of FM applications
See some examples of applications that interact with users by voice and other means
Levels of Learning
