(IS-2014-177) Towards a Wiser Use of Intelligence

The article, published by California Institute for Energy and Environment, University of California, makes a case for using open software architecture (as opposed to proprietary, closed systems) for building management systems. A layered model is introduced (similar to Open Systems Interconnect model, on which the Internet connectivity is based) and its benefits are discussed. Actual examples of implementation in the field (UC Berkeley campus) are described.
