The Leading News & Information Service For The Facilities, Workplace & Built Environment Community


27 January 2016 | Updated 01 January 1970

Growing interest in Big Data and advances in Cognitive Frameworks, Drones, Actroids (an android with strong human likenesses) and Robotics across many industries have led to the formation of the Artificial Intelligence in Facilities Management Group (AI in FM Group) to explore ways in which Artificial Intelligence can benefit the Facilities Management and Real Estate sectors.

The group will monitor closely the social and economic effects that the increased use of Artificial Intelligence will have on these sectors and their workforces.

A key activity of the group will be to identify the latest, most important developments in the field of Artificial Intelligence where it is felt there will be an impact – beneficial or not – and to bring them to the attention of the group’s members.



"As part of the continued development of AIinFM, we are carrying out a survey on the expectations and impact of AI on the FM and Real Estate sectors," says Chris Hoar, one of the founders of the group.

"Artificial intelligence covers developments in software and hardware that include but which are not limited to, smart applications, cognitive frameworks, robotics, actroids and drones.

"The survey is short and simple to complete - so please give it a go and we'll let you know the results in due course."
