I am extremely pleased to be a moderator and a media sponsor at the
2018 Nordic Smart Building Convention HELSINKI, JUNE 6TH & 7TH, 2018
I was extremely impressed with the information provided for our readers from last year’s great event. I am looking forward to interacting with panels and attendees at this event to learn more about some of my questions, such as,

How does the smart building automation industry make the transformation that it needs to undergo? This “Getting there from here” discussion deals with the shift in thinking and action that we all have to make in order to deal with the rapid change that is upon us.

Our August Autonomous Actions on the Intelligent Edge discussions in addition to our theme for AHRExpo Chicago education sessions, The Future of Building Automation – ” Data at the Open Intelligent Edge” have identified an immediate problem in our industry of how the transformation we all must make will occur.

Our smart building automation industry needs to follow the auto industry in reinventing ourselves to look and think like the self-learning software companies we are morphing into. Who will become the new Building Data Architects and the virtual building software companies of our future?

We have much to learn from the evolving self-driving autonomous cars and how can we make our smart buildings more self-driving and improve our client/customer experience with continuous connection starting at the edge and moving the bits of intelligence, intelligently.

How will we create value from our new found data and bring it back to the hive to discover new ways of providing comfort, health, satisfaction in our buildings?

In this article, I start to open some of the discussions needed

We need to recreate ourselves and do what we never imagined and set a path on how we will get there from here.

As you see I am a catalysis of change, full of questions and extremely interested in finding more answers in Helsinki.

See you there?

Auto Ken.
