Q1 2018: Research & Development

When TEECOM established our Research & Development group ten years ago, it grew out of the need to address the number one question we heard from clients: What’s next for technology? “What’s next” is a primary driver in business, science, and culture. But how do we know that what we build today will be able to handle emerging technologies? At TEECOMlabs, we test products by putting them into real-world simulations, we push the limits of systems compatibility, we prototype our own hardware and software, and we provide consulting and thought leadership. We’re advancing understanding of how artificial intelligence, mixed reality, and other technologies change our relationship to the built environment.

In the future, every building may be a personality, as artificial intelligence increasingly provides once-inert spaces with a voice and the ability to act. This shift will require designers and architects to think in new ways about how inhabitants relate to buildings. … Read more
