How Artificial Intelligence Can Enhance Life & Safety

Humans are only just beginning to benefit from the application of artificial intelligence (AI) and internet of things (IoT). What role can engineers and architects play in improving the safety and security in buildings?


Enjoy this interactive discussion outlining current life and safety devices and life-saving advances in AI and IoT. A live demo will demonstrate how one invention assists first responders in assessing an emergency situation and planning the most efficient exit strategy. 

Plus, learn how IoT devices can change directional signage based on emergency assessments before help arrives.

Learning objectives

  • Discover how trending technologies like AI, IoT, and micro-controllers can be employed for a building's life and safety enhancements.
  • Identify shortcomings in current building and fire codes as well as the vulnerability of life, safety, and property damage.
  • Grasp the differences and uses of real-time data and metadata used in technology.
  • Define proposed life and safety enhancements as "non-human intervention data-triage centers," and apply the AIA Code of Ethics for continued research and invention.
