About the Conference
The high interest towards the first truly global Artificial Intelligence conference in Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry in 2021 gave the spark for the annual conferences. In 2021 event, there were 235 registered participants from 30 countries, who graded the overall conference experience over 4 on a scale 1-5. The 2021 conference was already successful, but in 2022 we are heading to have even bigger and more international event.
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 for seeking solutions for better human life. This 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.
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 is already a penetrating trend, and it is boosted by the AI.
AI as a technological extension of humans is incrementally changing human labour task. The development of AI has gone through cycles of booms and busts, but never earlier have we had such a high and accelerating data growth. This 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 are facing the new era in AEC industry. AI has arrived in the arena, and it is now present from design to construction and usage phases. Building information modelling, smart buildings and creation of smart cities have exponentially added to the amount of the existing data. Whereas visual programming has made data-driven design more reachable, and the immersive technologies have 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 a breakthrough with AI in AEC, we need open-minded and future-orientated business leaders beside 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 is about sharing, sparring and networking. It is a place, where the global AI in AEC community meets and pushes together the industry to take the next step in AI deployment. It is time to move from building the foundation towards creating the value from data and AI. See you in future! #AIAEC2022
