Sheikh Hamdan posted on Twitter after he visited the launch that the goal of Dubai was to become a significant education capital that lures the brightest young minds worldwide.

Vice-chancellor at the University of Birmingham Dubai, Adam Tickell, said the objective was to develop the world’s most innovative campus in partnership with Siemens, the German industrial conglomerate.

Tickell said, “The living lab “utilizes data from people in the building.”

“We are utilizing data from individuals, and the sensors try to comprehend how the building and the people interact. It is almost like not believing that people in the building are separate but thinking of them as part of a whole organism.”

“When we walk into a space and turn on lights or air-conditioning, the sensors allow us to adjust what is happening. Instantly, we can also use the data we get from around the whole campus to analyze to become much more energy-efficient.”

Besides digital sensors, the university utilizes analytical technologies, artificial intelligence, decentralized energy storage and renewables.

“The major reason was to lower our carbon and energy consumption to the lowest likely level,” Mr Tickell said.

The University of Birmingham Dubai broke ground on the second stage of its campus in 2019.
