Our institute serves as a foothold for integration of academics, tech providers, startups and project stakeholders so we build consensus on the educational programs and compelling and well-defined research problems that will have the most impact on the construction industry and drive general advances in AI.
Our workshop brings all stakeholders together to build a coalition of construction partners and AI researchers. Together, we can address the urgent productivity, safety, and maintenance problems of the construction industry, and by doing so, we will drive foundational advances in AI that enable broader application across many industries.
The goal of this workshop is to gain a stronger focus and direction for the institute, and to explore the most value-adding form of engaging you, as its key stakeholders.
On day one of the half-day workshop, we will learn about how AI is used in construction today and the quantified cost of not using it.
Day two will focus on the road-blocks towards development and adoption of AI-driven solutions and how to tackle them. We will examine the process of converting ideas into practical solutions, the potential issues surrounding Ethics, Data Sharing, and IP Formulations, and the main gaps in knowledge that the institute should work on.
