BrainBox AI Launches Groundbreaking Generative AI-Powered Virtual Building Assistant

April 5, 2024
New digital tool enables greater efficiency for building professionals, streamlining operations, optimizing energy usage and reducing carbon emissions.

BrainBox AI, a pioneer in building technology, recently announced the launch of ARIA (Artificial Responsive Intelligent Assistant), a pioneering virtual building assistant powered by the latest generative AI technology with Amazon Bedrock. ARIA is designed to enhance building efficiency by assimilating seamlessly into the day-to-day processes related to building management.

The new tool offers first-of-its-kind technology and ingenuity to serve as an essential companion to facility managers. Created for use in commercial and retail spaces, ARIA is equipped with the predictive ability to circumvent operational problems while maintaining a watchful eye over a building’s blind spots, effectively redefining traditional facilities management.

A Complete View of Building Data

ARIA provides a 360-degree view of a building’s data, zeroing in specifically on its systems and its components to make recommendations that are not just accurate, but holistically informed for strategic decision-making. Ingrained in ARIA’s design is a two-way interaction. Not only can facility managers and building operators prompt it to carry out specific tasks, but they can also expect the virtual assistant to make and directly advise future actions toward the most efficient and effective management of their building.

Clients can “call” on ARIA via text or voice and seamlessly take their interactions from desktop to mobile without skipping a beat. The generative AI engine works 24/7 to help clients prioritize and optimize their buildings. This master feature transforms building management from reactive to proactive, increases its value, and directly contributes to an organization’s sustainability efforts.

Jean-Simon Venne, BrainBox AI’s Cofounder and Chief Technology Officer, commented:

“ARIA’s intelligence and intuition channels AI in truly unprecedented ways to help clients achieve their own unique decarbonization, energy consumption and operational efficiency goals. ARIA enables building teams to delegate mundane operational tasks and repetitive analytics to it so they can focus on more value-driven tasks. In just two years, generative AI has demonstrated its boundless capabilities across all sectors. Its rapid growth mirrors its equally swift market adoption, proving that it is a worthy asset to any organization that seeks to stay ahead of the curve in innovation and efficiency.” 

Built on Amazon Bedrock

The company’s fully autonomous feature is built on Amazon Bedrock, surrounded by a unique combination of AWS Lambda, AWS Fargate and Amazon Athena services. Amazon Bedrock is a fully managed service that offers a choice of high-performing foundation models from leading AI companies and Amazon via a single API, along with a broad set of capabilities for BrainBox AI to build generative AI applications with security, privacy and responsible AI. With Amazon Web Services (AWS), BrainBox AI is able to harness the power of AI and machine learning to drive innovation and build AI-powered solutions that can easily scale.

Together with BrainBox AI’s core AI for HVAC technology, ARIA makes a significant impact on building operations management, reducing HVAC energy costs by up to 25% and greenhouse gas emissions by up to 40%. The company is excited by this significant step change in innovation that meaningfully advances its mission to help save the planet with AI.
