Builddie’s technology aims to keep you comfortable in your homeWhile reducing your costs and energy usage

Our intention is simple: help home owners make important decisions about their home energy use.

We do that by applying artificial intelligence technologies to achieve extraordinary good for our customers, colleagues, and communities.

We envision learning algorithms replacing all static rules-based software.

Engines
Builddie™ has four engines which enable it to sense the current state of your home.

Builddie™ is a smart solution that has changed everything. Let’s look “under the hood” so you can understand what’s going on that you can’t see.

Don’t worry, it’s technical and you don’t have to understand it to benefit from Builddie™.

  • The prediction engine calculates what is likely to happen in your home and why.

    It analyzes billions of possible moves you could take to change this future.

  • The recommendation engine surfaces the best actions you can take to meet your objectives.

    Then, the result you select is fed back into Builddie™ to learn and optimize future recommendations.

  • The sensory engine finds patterns in your data and the outside world.

    It senses and communicates risks and opportunities that were previously hidden from your view.

  • The execution engine collects the best actions you’ve chosen to achieve your desired objectives.

    Then, the result you select is fed back into Builddie™ to learn and optimize future recommendations.

  • The Builddie™ team aims to create a living, breathing, technical environment

    Our AI-based solution is a living, breathing, technical environment that operates on “autopilot”. Builddie™ quickly recognizes imminent complications before they have a chance to occur. It is scaleable, so growing your housing or your household is no problem.

    Builddie™ allows you to customize parameters and make modifications on the fly. In the background, Builddie™ is continually learning and enhancing mindware for your future needs.

  • Here’s a quick summary of the technology

    Builddie™ uses advanced mathematical concepts to create a functionality similar to that of the human brain. Leveraging the principles of Artificial Intelligence, it captures tens of thousands of data points using a few sensors that are strategically placed throughout your home.

The concepts that are the heart of Builddie™Here is the high-level technical explanation
  • Math: algorithms that learn

    The core of Builddie™ is advanced mathematical modeling. Builddie™ is powered by very high dimensional non-linear regressions, classifications, neural networks, and associations.

    This enables Builddie™ to find the optimal operating plan among billions of possibilities.We focus on glass box (transparency) vs. black box algorithms.

    They allow homeowners to understand risks (probabilities) and causality, and ultimately to make more informed decisions on their energy use.

  • Data: lots of data

    Learning algorithms are distinct from static rules-based software. They learn and improve over time as they process more data. Getting the right data sources is key to using AI in a residential application.

    Builddie™ augments your internal building data with our data cartridges—curated external data streams. Our applications blend structured data (e.g., weather data) with unstructured data (e.g., thermal scan images).

    Using massive data, Builddie™ can generate unprecedented accuracy of forecasts, and optimize operation of your home systems.

  • Supercomputing: massive processing power

    Enter Builddie’s AI-optimized high-performance computing platform. Crunching the volume and types of data used to train residential algorithms was impossible even a few years ago.

    Builddie™ has petaflops (a unit of computing speed equal to one thousand million million [1015] floating-point operations per second) of computing power. This enables rapid training and validation of a wide breadth of data science hypotheses.

    For reference, this is over 1,000 times faster than the fastest supercomputer in the world in the year 2000.

Like we said, you don’t have to understand it to benefit from itMost people don’t really understand electricity, but they benefit from having it. What’s important is that you realize that Builddie™ uses leading edge technology to humanize your residence.
