*PREVIEW* The star of our upcoming webinar joined us in 2022 to discuss the research mission of the new Oracle Industry Lab.

From August 2022...

Our guest this month is Dr. Burcin Kaplanoglu, Vice President of Innovation at the new Oracle Industry Lab in Deerfield IL, outside Chicago. An avid technologist blessed with energetic curiosity, Kaplanoglu previously spent 15 years with Lendlease and holds multiple degrees in civil engineering and construction management.

Today, he also serves as an adjunct professor at Northwestern University and chairs an advisory committee to the A.I. in Construction Institute at the Grainger College of Engineering, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.

Here, he speaks with us about the purpose and practice of the lab, which is "a simulated worksite demonstrating the transformative power of the internet of things (IoT), drones, autonomous equipment, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other developing technologies." Focused on construction and engineering, much of the facility's research will undoubtedly affect the HVACR industry in the months and years to come.
