However similar phenomenon was not exactly happening in the building E&M (electrical and mechanical) industry in terms of its scale and speed. The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) handles over 8,000 public facilities in Hong Kong, facing the challenges on energy and facilities performance, is looking into the feasibility of wider and deeper use of AI on building E&M.
In recent years, EMSD together with AI experts, carried out field experiments by using Semantic AI approach. In this presentation, the approaches, experiences, results and some pilot applications will be demonstrated. Meanwhile, an event called "Global AI Challenge for Building E&M Facilities" had been organized to promote the wider adoption of AI in the industry. The achievements from the event will be shared and, more importantly, the way forward will be suggested.
