Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Disruption, Innovation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Leadership and Management hear these words all day every day... lofty goals but how do we make it real? Add to that, that simply put, people don't like change.
