Virtual Reality Games, Digital Signs Swedish Apartments Get a Boost with Microsoft AI Machine Learning

So they were on the lookout for a more accurate speech recognition platform. That’s when Mejia and Nydahl became aware of Microsoft’s Cognitive Services, offering developers Artificial Intelligence technologies spanning vision, speech, language, and knowledge, all accessible with just a few lines of code.

The speech recognition was highly accurate, especially in the face of background noise and different speaking styles, and it helped them deliver a compelling VR experience featuring innovative character interactions.

The net result is that Starship Commander delivers an immersive role-playing experience that puts players in heart-pounding situations in a sci-fi universe, one in which players become active agents who influence the storyline by deciding its direction and pace.

Each building includes systems from multiple manufacturers for water, electricity, plumbing, heating, and air conditioning – many silos of operational technology that do not communicate with each other.

The Eniga solution also uses Microsoft Dynamics 365 to manage customer and tenant information, and it publishes alerts and reports to customers through a Power BI dashboard that can be accessed through PCs and mobile devices.

The new service is expected to save Stockrose property owners €40 million (US$42.37 million) within 10 years by reducing hot water consumption.

The platform can easily scale to other equipment, sensors, and buildings, and they plan to take advantage of additional real-time analytics capabilities, and also use machine learning for predictive maintenance, so they can care for their buildings even more efficiently.

The sensor can measure the volume and moisture of snow, and by combining that information with data from the National Weather Service, alerts can be sent to the property manager if preventive action needs to be taken right now.

But the biggest win is that tenants become more aware when utilities costs such as hot water are separated from their rent – they are motivated to look at their environmental footprint and finally have a financial incentive to conserve water –

With digital displays becoming ever more ubiquitous, we encounter them every day in elevators, convenience stores, at bus stops, in subways stations and cars, and many other places.

Furthermore, even when it is determined that on-site maintenance is required to fix an issue, the solution can help by determining what components will be needed to address a potential failure, saving resources and further increasing uptime.
