About the Conference
Do you want to be a part of the digital disruption in the field of the Architecture, Engineering and Construction, or a bystander and watch how it runs over you? If you want to understand what Artificial Intelligence means to AEC sector, please join the conference with the other potential forerunners!
The seed for this conference was planted with the preparation of the IABSE AI Workshop 2020. The high international interest towards the 2020 event, showed that AEC industry has clear lack of this kind of global conference. Our industry is now ready to take the next step in AI deployment and move from building the foundation towards creating the value from data and AI.
How society and economy are changing through digital disruption is one of the defining issues of our time. Throughout the history of the mankind, we have had a quest of seeking solutions for better human life. That has led us through industrial revolutions to the information society, where the distribution of the information, and in later face also the data collecting, have been the key factors of the digital revolution.
The digitalization pushes us towards the next industrial revolution with the exponential expansion of the merging technology blurring the borders of the physical, digital and biological surroundings. We are facing society, where smart machines empower humans, and the digital innovations enhance the wellbeing of the mankind and the nature. It’s already penetrating trend, and it’s boosted by the artificial intelligence.
Artificial intelligence as a technological extension of humans, is incrementally changing human labour task. The development of artificial intelligence has gone through cycles of booms and busts, but never earlier we have had such a high and accelerating data growth. That, combined with the fact that the rise in computing power has finally made the technology powerful enough, enables the promise of AI. This conference is to figure out how to harness this potentiality of AI in AEC industry.
AI in Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry
We’re facing the new era in AEC industry. The AI has arrived in the arena, and it’s now present from design to construction and usage phases. At first stage, the AI has crawled to the industry through enthusiastic engineers and researchers who has seen it as a possibility to make work more efficient and interesting.
Building information modelling, smart buildings and creation of smart cities have exponentially added the amount of the existing data. The visual programming has made data-driven design more reachable, and the immersive technologies has enhanced the visual management of the data.
To succeed in the digital landscape, we should further develop our AI capabilities and match them with the customer values and business opportunities. To make the breakthrough with AI in AEC sector, we need open-minded future-orientated business leaders besides the AI-orientated engineers and researchers, as well as companies and universities working together in an international context.
This conference will offer in-depth review of current status and future impact of AI in AEC industry. It’s about sharing, sparring and networking. It’s a place where the future is present. See you there!
