KUALA LUMPUR: i-City has inked a partnership with China Mobile to further enhance the development by building the first smart green building in the country.
i-City director Monica Ong said incorporating artificial intelligence (AI) technology would enhance resource planning in the building.
“The corporate tower will be equipped with 5G Internet enabled cameras and sensors to monitor the environment, energy consumption and human traffic flow for data gathering purposes. With the AI technology incorporated into the building fabric, energy used to power lights, air conditioning and other electrical equipment can be tuned automatically based on the weather and number of people inside the building.
“Conversely, resource planning for security and cleanliness can be managed more effectively. With sufficient data gathered, machines connected to the building will be able to identify and highlight to the building management peak hours and number of cleaners and security personnel required ahead of time with the capability of AI,” Ong said in a statement.
With the rollout of 5G this year, i-City will be working on numerous AI enhancements to ensure that the ultrapolis maintains its position as Malaysia’s first and most progressive smart city.
Ong said China Mobile has 14 years track record in developing energy efficient technologies to address climate change through its “green action plan”.
