About the Organization

BrainBox AI is at the forefront of the green building revolution and it utilizes self-adapted artificial intelligence technology to proactively optimize the energy consumption of one of the largest climate change contributors: Buildings. BrainBox AI engine supports a self-operating building that requires no human intervention. Using deep learning, cloud-based computing, and our proprietary process, our solution autonomously optimizes existing Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) control systems for maximum impact on energy consumption.

With the target markets being the various verticals in the commercial real estate sector, such as office, hotels, retail, airport, multi-residential, the market potential for BrainBox AI’s technology is very large.  Our ambition is to grow BrainBox AI into a meaningful player in the market, on a global scale.

Utilizing the power of artificial intelligence

HVAC systems account for 51% of total energy usage in commercial buildings. Inefficient and poorly designed systems are costly to manage, often ineffective at maintaining comfort levels and major producers of greenhouse gases. Our fully autonomous self-adaptive AI engine is designed to deliver significant savings and dramatically reduce carbon emissions, enabling a self-operating building. Our AI engine, together with our proprietary process, allows you to move from reactive to pre-emptive operations management in three steps.

Step 1: Getting acquainted

The solution identifies and catalogues your building’s specific operating behaviour and energy flow by gathering data from both internal and external sources. It then creates a building energy profile for making informed predictions about future energy flow. BrainBox AI collects hundreds of thousands real-time data points, such as outside temperature, sun/cloud positioning, fan speed, duct pressure, heater status, humidity levels, occupant density and many more.

Step 2: Optimizing Flow

Using over 28 customized algorithms working in real time, our AI engine instructs existing HVAC system on how to operate more intelligently and efficiently. This process is similar to an aircraft on autopilot.

Step 3: Continuous Improvement

Our solution continually amalgamates and analyzes all generated data to further optimize operational efficiency and discover other unique insights. To improve operational efficiency, BrainBox AI works to answer questions, including:
