    The critical role of data ontologies

    The critical role of data ontologies

    The name may sound abstract, but data ontologies have a very practical role to play in making our buildings work better. Whether it’s Brick, Haystack, VBIS, or something else, their purpose is essentially the same: to help us organise data from the built environment.

    In this episode of AIRAH on Air, host Mark Vender talks to four members of AIRAH’s Big Data and Analytics Special Technical Group about data ontologies, the issues we face when people use different systems for managing their data, and how we can overcome these challenges.

    Guests:• Tristan Webber, Affil.AIRAH • Nicholas Lianos, Affil.AIRAH • Sylvia Quaglia • Daniel Porragas, Affil.AIRAH

    AIRAH celebrates 100 – an interview with two former Presidents

    As AIRAH celebrates 100 years, we commemorate not just our Institute’s history but also our members and their contributions to heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration. In this episode of AIRAH on Air, we talk to two former AIRAH Presidents about the state of HVAC&R.

    In an interview with Ecolibrium editor Matt Dillion, Sean Treweek, F.AIRAH, and Ania Hampton, M.AIRAH, detail their careers in the hidden industry; offer predictions for where it’s going; talk experiences with AIRAH; and provide advice for those interested in a career in an essential industry.

    “If you look at HVAC&R, we are so deeply embedded in everybody’s lives at every moment,” says Ania Hampton, pointing to its impact on agriculture, healthcare, and beyond. “People take what we do for granted.”

    Guests:
    Sean Treweek, F.AIRAH, CEO at Meinhardt Australia
    Ania Hampton, M.AIRAH, Director at Edefice

    Sean and Ania were also profiled as two of AIRAH’s 100 Faces. Read their Q&As and meet other notable people, places, and objects from AIRAH’s history and the HVAC&R industry at https://www.airah100.org.au/faces.html
