Presentation given on the EU VERYSchool project at the SmarTABCD’15, Workshop on Smart Technologies and Applications on Buildings, Cities and Districts. The workshop was organized in parallel to the 1th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence Applications and Innovations (AIAI 15) organized in Bayonne from the 14th to the 17th of September, and focused on results generated by recent European initiatives for the development of innovative smart technologies for buildings and districts efficiency.
Building energy consumption is strongly dependent on the functionality of the building, the occupancy behavior, the outdoor environment, the structure and building materials, and the operation management. Nowadays and to optimize energy consumption, buildings are using automation systems with equipment, metering systems, smart devices and IoT (Internet of Things) applications to optimize their usage. Today’s automation systems produce tremendous amounts of data. This data can be very hard to organize and use across different applications because it is stored in many different formats; has inconsistent naming conventions and very limited data descriptors. In essence it lacks information to describe the meaning of the data. And without meaning a time–consuming manual effort is required before value creation can begin.
