BrainBox AI’s generative AI powered natural language operational platform shows tremendous promise towards accelerating and improving the way their customers understand and make decisions around their HVAC and energy management systems.

BrainBox AI is an autonomous building technology company that works with commercial real estate and retail organizations to improve the efficiency and sustainability of their HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) systems. The company identified unique opportunities across the real estate market to improve energy efficiency and minimize the capital expenditure traditionally associated with such efforts. Leveraging autonomous AI, BrainBox AI makes buildings smarter, greener, and more efficient, helping reduce their impact towards energy consumption and climate change.

BrainBox AI works in collaboration with research partners including MILA – Quebec AI Institute, the Institute for Data Valorization (IVADO) as well as educational institutions including McGill University. The company supports real estate clients in various sectors, including office buildings, hotels, commercial retail, grocery stores, airports, and more. Some of their most notable clients include North American real estate owners and retailers such as Sleep Country, Cammeby’s, and Great West Life Realty Advisors who have begun implementing their solutions across hundreds of their locations. BrainBox AI also holds notable commercial relationships with ABB, Trane Technologies and KMC Controls.


Challenge

With an installed base of over 13,000 real estate and retail locations in its current operations, BrainBox AI is continuously looking for ways to accelerate the decarbonization and optimization journey for its clients. This portfolio represents millions of datapoints that BrainBox AI utilizes via autonomous AI to drive meaningful efficiency gains. BrainBox AI saw the opportunity to further leverage this data, that is typically bottlenecked by the limitations associated with traditional dashboards. Generative AI based interfacing and activation represents a significant opportunity to deliver next-level co-pilot support to building operators and facility managers.

The company approached Caylent to develop a natural language interface powered by AWS’s generative AI suite.

Solution

Caylent’s data and AI experts worked collaboratively with BrainBox AI’s CTO, data scientists, engineers and DevOps specialist to understand BrainBox AI’s goals and plan out the deployment of AWS tooling for data ingestion, report generation, and conversational interfacing.

BrainBox AI’s GenAI-powered solution shows tremendous promise towards accelerating and improving the way their customers understand and make decisions around their HVAC and energy management systems. BrainBox AI’s autonomous building operations co-pilot is set to launch in Q1 2024 when further details about the technology’s abilities and impact will be shared.
