Arup has been appointed by the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) of the Hong Kong SAR Government to provide consultancy services for a feasibility study on artificial intelligence (AI) data standardisation for the electrical and mechanical (E&M) services domain.

AI’s benefits are only achieved if the data quality and consistency are optimum. To that extent, Arup will help the EMSD to check international standards worldwide on AI data and provide findings on prevailing formats of AI data in Hong Kong, mainland China and worldwide. We will also suggest on formation of E&M data set/data catalogue by studying existing data sets across the E&M industry to facilitate the AI data standardisation.

This project will enable easier data sharing and integration within different E&M systems under the control of the EMSD. It will help EMSD to streamline data acquisition processes and improve the quality and reliability of data by making it consistent and accurate.

Leveraging our multidisciplinary expertise and advanced technologies, we are delighted to play a part in driving Hong Kong’s journey towards net zero by realising the full potential of AI and enabling big data analytics at a larger scale.
