Right for the last 20 years, you know, you're coming to a nice building. Um, you, you pay a decent amount per square foot to rent the building. And the only thing that's in your contract is that you'll have HPAC conditioned to air, you know, for 12 hours a day. It doesn't say that we'll give you good indoor air.

We continue where we left off with Brian where he said that we don’t need a fully automated BMS to have a healthy environment. But this time we go into the nitty-gritty side of interoperability and the importance of contextual relationships in buildings and how to achieve them. We talk about the skill-shortage gap, ontology wars, and how we can create a reality we need on a planetary scale.

This is truly an amazing episode and we get to take a deep dive into what is happening behind the scenes. This is an episode you do not want to miss and you will understand why OAP is in the place to be!

These are some of the questions that are being answered in the episode!

  • Do we have contractual clauses regarding rental agreements demanding healthy buildings yet?

  • What are the main drivers for healthy buildings and how can they be achieved?

  • What are the first steps in achieving smart buildings?

  • Is it possible to just deploy sensors and then magically see what we need to do?

  • What is the importance of context when dealing with smart building data?

  • How can we connect the dots for them?

  • What is the ontology alignment project?

  • What are the ontology wars and why should everyone care?

  • How do we combine flexibility with consistency?

  • What is the OAP, DBO and what are the pros and cons of prescriptive ways of working?

  • Will there be one ontology to rule them all? Why or why not?

  • How do we make the most of the amazing knowledge that exists today? And how do we put it to good use for present and future generations? And why is this important?

  • How do we make it easier to transfer knowledge between people and systems whilst making it easy for AI to solve problems that we have, in the fastest time possible?

And so much more will be discussed in this episode with Brian Turner. Please let us know what you think, and what you want to hear more of. Thank you for listening to the Beyond Buildings Podcast!
