Storyboard Text

  • Hey Aglaia, wait up! Do you have a minute?
  • Super! Let's take a walk. I want to show you something.
  • Hi Kathy, sure! My meetings are done for the day.
  • Yes! And all the lights were on regardless! 
  • What do you notice about this conference room?
  • Um, that it's empty? 
  • How busy do you think this cafe gets?
  • Wouldn't it be nice if you knew how long the queue was before you made your way down here?
  • No idea. But it's really busy now...too long a queue to wait in!
  • Yes, that would save a lot of time...
  • Speaking of saving time, look at these elevator queues...
  • Oooh, my head hurts just looking at them
  • If we understood the spaces and traffic patterns in our building better, we could avoid the queues, wasted energy and wasted time.
  • ...and up to 5% in occupancy costs.
  • By my estimates, we could be saving 10-30% in energy costs....
  • ...16-35% in operational costs...
  • I have a great idea to solve this problem, but I need your executive influence to help me do it!
  • I'm in!!!
  • The biggest problem is that our building systems are so fragmented and siloed. None of them talk to each other.
  • Yes, but Google's mission is to unify the world's information...surely we can do that with our buildings!
  • That's true. Think how fun it would be to work with all our Google partners!
  • I can see it now: an integrated network connecting all devices...
  • ...and Google's cloud infrastructure is the perfect platform to build an intelligent suite of Cloud IOT systems! 
  • Just think how smart our buildings could be!
  • We could be smart about heating and cooling rooms; we'd know which spaces were used the most and optimize for where all the Googlers were!
  • ...and Googlers could even apply personal preferences, directly from Google apps!
  • Just think what our machine learning algorithms could do with all the data...
  • Our buildings would become all powerful and all-knowing!
  • We'd be even more energy efficient, and our systems would be even safer and more secure...
  • I'm so excited about this! Let's begin work! I'm so happy you'll be leading this initiative!
  • This is going to be awesome! I can't wait to get started! Cheers!!!
  • June 2016: first cross-org BOS workshop (corpnet, REWS, CorpEng + PAs
  • ...and that's why we need an integrated network
  • Oct 2016: Concept design completed
  • Approved!
  • Aug 2017: Proof of concept complete with data flowing through cloud to simple application. Shows savings between 6-30% of energy.
  • The proof of concept was a success!
  • Congratulations! I knew it would be!
  • London: the first Google building whose devices are being connected to the cloud.
  • The results are displayed on these dashboards
  • Great job Kathy! Way to go Women in 24x7!
