Artificial intelligence could help cool buildings more efficiently. London-based research firm DeepMind trained an AI to minimise energy usage while controlling building cooling systems under different weather conditions.
“A key benefit of using AI in a [building] climate control system is that it is constantly monitoring and adapting to the changing world,” says Jerry Luo at DeepMind.
DeepMind worked with Google and Trane Technologies, a manufacturer of building control systems, to develop an AI for controlling cooling systems at university campus buildings and a mixed-used …
