There are four global megatrends that shape the energy sector: climate change and resource efficiency; urbanisation; new technologies and digitalisation; and active customers. These megatrends will bring profound changes not only to how energy is produced and sold to customers, but also to how it is consumed in our daily lives. Fortum is now looking for novel AI-assisted services for customers’ homes and have organised a hackathon challenge AI Comes Home. CNet has been selected as one of the finalists for this hackathon that will take place 7-8 December. We will participate with a intelligent digital assistant that combines both video and voice input to guide consumers in living a more sustainable life.
As part of our innovation area Smart Cities we have started one of the largest European projects on deployment of IoT solutions in large scale applications. Focus of the Monica project is to deploy wearable IoT technologies together with the latest sound management technologies to improve security, sound disturbance and user experiences at large otu door events such as music concerts, sports games, street festivals and other outdoor shows. CNet is developing the monitoring tools for providing a common operational picture together with a set of different apps for visitors as well as security personnel.
Providing enjoyable and secure outdoor events have become a top priority for modern cities, but at the same time they need to have solutions for reducing noise and annoyance for the surroundings. This challenge will be solved by the Monica project.
