The University of Murcia participated at the European Utility Week in Amsterdam. Fernando Terroso-Saenz presented how the ENTROPY project uses Internet of Things and Big Data for Behavioural changes in Energy Efficiency and exhibited the platform’s architecture to interested third parties.
The presentation entitled “Internet of Things and Big Data for Behavioural changes in Energy Efficiency: the Entropy project” took place at the Hub sessions – Big Data & Analytics – Data to Reinvent the Customer Journey
Additionally we talked about methods to motivate behavioural changes through an IT ecosystem applying gamification strategies rooted on people’s enjoyment of challenges, positive feedback, and social bonding that ENTROPY enables. An exemplar strategy is the application of data analysis techniques for the recommendation system of the serious game and personalized application that is adaptative to the individuals’ responses.
Lastly, the importance of data gathering for smart buildings applications was discussed and analyzed. A crucial goal of a smart building is energy efficiency and the provision of an IoT platform for data gathering enables the interaction between the data collected by the metering in the building and the data collected by the games.
