research and innovation strategy, DEXMA has launched a new R&D project called Eco-bot (Personalised ICT-tools for the Active Engagement of Consumers Towards Sustainable Energy). The aim of project Eco-bot is to build an energy efficiency chatbot that can deliver personalised information on disaggregated energy usage through an intelligent and interactive virtual assistant. The ultimate goal of the project is a larger one, though: to actually nudge human behaviour towards energy efficiency. Through an attractive front-end interface, the resulting chatbot will enable seamless communication in a more natural and interactive way than offered by traditional mobile applications or websites. Read on to learn more about this exciting R&D project at the leading edge of harnessing artificial intelligence for energy efficiency.
