As part of the KTP Essex will connect Cloudfm to four IoT and AI academics, most notably Dr Faiyaz Doctor and Dr Hossein Anisi from Essex’s School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering, to lead on the technology implementation.
Two full-time KTP Associates will also be recruited, to be based at Cloudfm’s offices, with a mandate to research cutting-edge AI and IoT technologies, working with Cloudfm’s technical teams to develop novel algorithms and pioneering intellectual property to the ultimate benefit of Cloudfm’s clients.
Dr Faiyaz Doctor, from the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering, said: “AI and IoT technology is a leading research area for academics across our Intelligent Connected Societies Group. Being able to apply our research methodologies to industry challenges, such as those presented by Cloudfm, offers our academic team exciting research potential and a route to achieving impact within the economy and broader society.”
The technology implemented in this KTP is just one way in which Cloudfm is disrupting FM norms. Founded specifically to fix the systemic problems in the industry - inadequate processes, poorly-applied technology and unreliable data, which all lead to inflated cost and unacceptable waste - the company has revolutionised the market with a totally new way of thinking about FM service provision. Through a focus on comprehensive verified data, controlled processes, and a commitment to doing the right thing, Cloudfm’s radically different partnership model – delivered through its advanced technology platform – enables costs to be controlled while simultaneously raising quality.
