Kim Dong Kyun is the technical director in DLABs Pte Ltd. He is leading the digital and AI teams to accelerate the digitalization of the building industry.
He originates from South Korea and has both master’s and bachelor’s degrees in Architectural Engineering and Environmental Planning. His training in the diverse fields of architectural, engineering, and environmental planning allowed him to have a holistic understanding of the intimate interactions and integrations between these 3 key aspects of buildings, particularly on how architectural and engineering systems affect the overall performance of a building.
Kim has more than 10 years of hand-on experiences on building physics engineering, parametric modelling, big data analytics, energy and thermal dynamics modelling and related building fields. Kim specialises in data driven building simulations and operating data analysis. He assists architects, engineering consultants and ESD consultants in optimising building designs from concept design stages right through to building operational stages, achieving as much as 35% in energy savings during actual operational stages.
Kim is well versed with the AI algorithm and big data analytics. Recently, he has built AI building analytics module, AI driven battery management system, and AI fault prediction algorithms to detect fire risks in the building. He uses this knowledge to automate the building design process with his team.
