Unlocking the Future of Building Engineering: Is AI-Powered Solutions Shaping the Industry

Unlocking the Future of Building Engineering: Is AI-Powered Solutions Shaping the Industry

In this episode of the WiseUP podcast, we sit down with Diana Bilous and Seth Rizzo, two distinguished engineers from the global consulting firm AKF.

Join us as we delve into the fascinating world of critical systems and data centers, exploring the intricate details of fuel oil systems, generator design, fluid dynamics, electrical construction administration, power systems, and so much more. How does AI impact engineering in the future?

Discover how Diana and Seth leverage their extensive expertise to optimize these systems, enhance energy conservation, ensure code compliance, and tackle complex engineering challenges.

Tune in to gain valuable insights and learn from the experiences of these accomplished professionals in the field of mechanical and electrical engineering.

Special side note: Some of us have a tendency to take the MEP and/or IT infrastructure that enables nearly everything around us for granted. This infrastructure is hidden behind walls, above ceilings, or even below our feet. Our future depends on platforms for education like this podcast and others like BICSI, 7X24 Exchange, IFMA, and a number of others. We would especially like to thank Mary Glynn, Priya Domadia, Kate Thomas, and Diana Bilous for volunteering their time to represent WiMCO as part of 7X24 Exchange and for their efforts in helping to promote engineering awareness to Fontbonne Hall Academy. It is an independent, private Catholic high school and academy for young women that is located in Brooklyn, New York.

Special thanks to Wise Components for their contribution in helping produce this podcast.
