The impact of IoT on Building Design and User Experience
James McHale from Memoori opened the event and talked about the impact of IoT in the context of building design ad user experience. In his speech, James highlighted that one of the most important questions that should be raised in the discussion around smart buildings, is not whether the building has some technology or not, but what is the building’s purpose, and is it fulfilling said purpose?

Haltian CEO and Co-founder Pasi Leipälä continued on James’s topic on what makes a building smart and how to actually make them.
Typically, there are certain stages on making something ‘smart’: you begin by gathering data from various sources, then you need to process and integrate the data somewhere. What comes next, is bringing the data visible, and finally, and perhaps most importantly, utilizing the data. Find out more and watch the recording here.
