Day 2 Breakout Sessions (two tracks, sessions are 90 minutes each)
Applications at the Intersection of Analytics and Control – In this session, community members will present examples of applications where the results of analytics are being coupled with control actions to execute changes in the operation of building systems.
The call for presenters for this session is open. We have openings for three presenters focusing on applications where analytic results are used to drive commands to external systems.
Applications at the Intersection of Human Activity – The majority of issues identified through the use of analytics require human action to address. Driving that workflow requires effectively communicating results to users—from technicians and building engineers, to energy managers and financial managers. Presentations in this session will focus on the use of visualization tools to communicate and drive the workflow process.
The call for presenters for this session is open. We are planning for 3 presenters.
The Most Amazing Analytics Findings of All Time Bake Off – This session will be conducted as a series of 10-minute, rapid fire presentations by community members. Prizes will be awarded based on attendee votes! This was one of our most exciting sessions at SkyPosium 2018 and is back by popular demand.
The call for presenters for this session is open. We are accepting up to 6 presenters for the Analytic Findings session.
New in 2018: Using the SkySpark Tariff Engine to calculate real world energy costs – The SkySpark Tariff Engine is a powerful tool. In this session community members show examples of their application of the Tariff engine to calculate energy costs in real world projects.
The call for presenters for this session is open. We are accepting up to 4 presenters in the Tariff Engine session.
ViewBuilder Show and Tell Bake Off – The community competes to show off examples of the best use of ViewBuilder to create custom Apps, Views and Reports. Speakers will be provided with 10 minutes for rapid fire presentations. Prizes will be awarded based on attendee votes!
Six speaking slots are available.
Applying Machine Learning – It’s one of the most talked about topics in data analytics. Yet it’s not magic. Utilizing Machine Learning requires an understanding of the concepts of the various ML tools and the types of problem and data sets it is applicable to. In this session community members discuss their application of Machine Learning.
The call for presenters for this session is open. We are accepting up to 6 presenters for the View Builder topic and 4 for the Machine Learning topic.
