Lighting significantly influences our body's automatic functions. Visual perception of color and clarity at different distances and intensities play a crucial role in shaping well-being and productivity. Research suggests an intriguing link between how data is processed by the right eye-left brain axis and left eye-right brain axis in diverse lighting conditions. Understanding this connection can drive innovative approaches to optimize human well-being and productivity in architecture and design. Dr. Kara Alexzander further explores this topic, delving into the significance of color temperature, TM-30 evaluation, lumen output, and color rendering in shaping our experiences with lighting.

As the intricacies of modern building operations and tenant requirements escalate, we will delve into the core elements that define a healthy building and the cutting-edge technology available today. Luminaire-level lighting controls (LLLC) convert a lighting system into a dynamic sensor platform that facilitates two-way communication, enabling real-time monitoring of zonal temperatures, ventilation levels and occupancy rates, and detecting potential threats like elevated decibel levels. See why facilities are already embracing LLLCs in both new construction and retrofit projects without complex control hard wiring. The session will include hands-on demonstration kits, designed to offer users a first-hand opportunity to better understand and experience app-based user interfaces, system configuration, wireless connectivity and approaches of fixture addressability and zoning. LLLCs can help you create people-centric spaces that are designed to provide comfort, well-being and safety, all while increasing efficiency and productivity.

Recent advancements in AI systems have already had a significant impact on healthcare, legal, marketing and other major industries. This presentation explores the potential of AI to transform how lighting is specified and procured. First, I will present industry research quantifying how time is spent currently to specify, quote and manage submittals for lighting products. Next, I will demonstrate that current AI technology has the potential to automate key activities and, thus, fundamentally change the time scales and employee skills required to complete this work. Finally, I will discuss the business implications for specifiers, sales agents and distributors in terms of workforce management, growth and competitiveness in the age of AI.
