BrainBox AI has announced the launch of virtual building assistant, ARIA (Artificial Responsive Intelligent Assistant), powered by Amazon Bedrock’s latest generative AI technology to enhance building efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.

Similar to the iconic relationship of Iron Man and Jarvis, ARIA is designed to serve as an essential companion to facility managers by assimilating into the day-to-day processes of building management.

Created for use in commercial and retail spaces, ARIA is equipped with the predictive ability to avoid operational problems while covering a building’s blind spots, effectively redefining traditional facilities management.

Using BrainBox AI’s trailblazing autonomous AI technology as its internal compass, ARIA promises a 360-degree view of a building’s data, zeroing in specifically on its systems to make recommendations for strategic decision-making. 

ARIA allows facility managers and building operators to give it prompts to carry out specific tasks while also expecting the virtual assistant to make and directly advise future actions for the most efficient management of their building. 

Users can “call” on ARIA via text or voice and take their interactions from desktop to mobile. ARIA’s generative AI engine works 24/7 to help clients prioritize and optimize their buildings to increase value and directly contribute to an organization’s sustainability efforts.

“ARIA’s intelligence and intuition channels AI in truly unprecedented ways to help clients achieve their own unique decarbonization, energy consumption and operational efficiency goals. ARIA enables building teams to delegate mundane operational tasks and repetitive analytics to it so they can focus on more value-driven tasks,” said Jean-Simon Venne, BrainBox AI’s co-founder and CTO. 

The company’s fully autonomous feature is built on Amazon Bedrock, surrounded by a combination of AWS Lambda, AWS Fargate and Amazon Athena services. 

Amazon Bedrock is a fully managed service that offers a choice of foundation models from AI companies and Amazon via a single API, along with a broad set of capabilities for BrainBox AI to build generative AI applications with security, privacy and responsible AI.

“Amazon Bedrock was designed to help companies build transformative generative AI solutions and get to market faster,” said Howard Wright, VP and global head of startups at AWS.

“We couldn’t be happier to see a groundbreaking solution like ARIA come to fruition – one that will completely change building operations and empower facility managers around the world to optimize energy consumption and reduce carbon emissions even beyond what they have been able to do with BrainBox AI’s existing solution.”
