Webinar: Adaptive Reality – The Last Frontier @ ZOOM LINK will be sent through confirmation email!
Oct 20 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

What if static design was something of the past and our environment changed to please us? What if Building Standards would include the adaptability of the environment to the occupier’s needs?

The enlightened democratization of space is happening thanks to embedded electronics in anything architectural.

We’ll cover the theory and practice of Adaptive Reality. First, the fundamentals of IoT and Mesh networks, then the technology available today and soon to be released. We conclude with a look at the future and the impact of Artificial Intelligence in architecture.

Learning Objectives:

  1. explain how Adaptive Reality works.
  2. demonstrate how Bluetooth Mesh works.
  3. explain how commercial IoT works in architecture.
  4. demonstrate the value of IoT in architecture to owners and end-users.
