Artificial intelligence is a science that can be applied to real-world problems and get the benefit of wisdom from the experience learnt. Our environment be it home, office, industry, large building complex etc. needs to be monitored to handle anomalies and quickly respond in times of catastrophe. Our existing environments can be made smarter by augmenting with technology for data acquisition and supportive software framework for decision making. With this as the objective, AI for smart environments has been chosen for discussion in the symposium. We would deliberate and show demonstrations on how Artificial Intelligence can be used as a tool to make our environment smarter and safer. With the dawn and availability of cost-effective devices for data capture such as sensors and vision systems, cloud infrastructure for data storage and processing, enormous data is being acquired and stored. But less emphasis has been given to process the data and do real-time analysis and decision making. We would explore how to use AI as a tool to solve these challenges.
