Growing interest in Big Data and advances in Cognitive Frameworks, Drones, Actroids and Robotics across many industries have led to the formation of the Artificial Intelligence in Facilities Management Group to explore ways in which Artificial Intelligence can benefit the Facilities Management and Real Estate sectors. The group will monitor closely the social and economic effects that the increased use of Artificial Intelligence will have on these sectors and their workforces. 

 

A key activity of the group will be to identify the latest, most important developments in the field of Artificial Intelligence where it is felt there will be an impact – beneficial or not – and to bring them to the attention of the group’s members.

Take part in the group's current survey to understand expectations and possibilities in the field. It takes just 5 minutes to complete. Go to the survey.

Contributions to the group via discussions are welcome from anyone involved in the Facilities Management and Real Estate sectors, as well as organizations and individuals that represent the Artificial Intelligence industry. You can find the group on LinkedIn.

Smart homes concept

Housing is the fundamental right of all people, yet gross distortions in housing conditions and in the balance between supply and demand exist across the world. This situation is not peculiar to poor regions. Affluent countries fail to provide decent and affordable housing for all and this is an impediment to the advancement of modern and just societies.

Listen to the people

Experience is the best teacher or so it is said. As far as stakeholders go, end-users – the collective term for those who receive services – are amongst the most powerful. Even so, their opinions are not always sought; worse, they are sometimes ignored. Doing so, breaks a vital link in the chain from defining the facilities management strategy to delivering services that satisfy requirements and achieve best value for money. 

Sustainable space provision

Space efficiency has long been a central concern for building owners and tenants. Now, pressure to make buildings comply with sustainability criteria is forcing the pace of change. There is a need to look beyond immediate concerns about space utilisation and efficiencies in the workplace to the provision of space based on what is affordable and sustainable into the future.

Telecare can be all around the home

People are affected by their surroundings and, especially, by the condition of their homes. When people are healthy, a less than ideal setting may amount to little more than irritation; but when people are elderly and/or in poor health, conditions in the home can have a significant impact. Poor building conditions lead to poor health; conversely, good conditions can promote good health.
