GPT-4 can aid data mining for energy management in the construction industry.
A team of researchers from China and the Netherlands has developed an innovative solution using OpenAI’s GPT-4 to automate data analysis for building energy management. The study, conducted by Eindhoven University of Technology and Zhejiang University, demonstrated GPT-4’s ability to generate codes that forecast building energy loads and identify device faults by analyzing operational data.
The research showed that GPT-4 could accurately predict energy load and provide reliable explanations for fault diagnosis and anomaly detection. By automating coding and data analysis tasks, GPT-4 offers a cost-effective and accessible approach to data-guided building energy management. The study, published in the journal Energy and Built Environment, represents a breakthrough in the field and highlights GPT-4’s potential for customized data mining solutions in building energy management. The researchers encourage further exploration of GPT-4’s capabilities to make building energy management smarter and more efficient in the future.
