The Digital Twin is more than a replica of a building based on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. As it relates to building management, a digital twin is a learning system that utilizes historical and actual data to help achieve the goal of optimizing building performance. But how does a digital twin compensate for incomplete data or the “gut feel” for the building system? This session will provide an overview of how AI and machine learning can be used to fill in the gaps in knowledge between expert, on-site, facilities teams, and cloud-based services. We’ll discuss techniques for identifying faults and anomalies without rules, grading influence, and arriving at a correlation “map” —all in the service of uncovering real-impact building system anomalies.
