New Green Jobs Partnership Launches

Logical Buildings CEO Jeff Hendler teaches Hopeworks class

Providing a pathway to future jobs in the growing field of building energy management, including clean energy technologies, IoT, and ESG, Logical Buildings, a smart buildings technology software developer and services provider, has created a curriculum to train young people at Hopeworks! The hands-on curriculum demonstrates groundbreaking energy visualization and management through Logical Building’s SmartKit AI™ toolkit, enabled by Comcast’s device-to-cloud platform, Machine Q, and Energy Coordinating Agency’s (ECA) software.

The classes, combined with a mentoring program, are teaching students to work on multiple AI platforms in real time.

“Comcast came to us with an idea to design a course using the actual building in which Hopeworks is headquartered,” says Jeff Hendler, CEO of Logical Buildings. “Together, we have accomplished an unparalleled training experience in a physical environment. It’s a pragmatic course to help young people find meaningful high-tech work in the present, a gateway to exceptional career paths, and social justice for an underserved community.”

In addition to practical training on the Logical Buildings SmartKit™ AI platform, which already services the building with smart energy management, the classes cover the fundamentals of coding and creating innovative website tools. The curriculum also includes assignments pertinent to the three hosts’ platforms, such as the utility of the hardware, mapping and analyzing critical data, and understanding mobile deliverables. Comcast was responsible for donating all the hardware for the program.

Hopeworks is excited for this latest example of industry working with the region’s young professionals to grow opportunity!
