Technology continues to drive change within all of the industries it touches—including architecture, engineering, and construction. Developments in artificial intelligence, virtual reality, advanced modeling, and tangible visualization are converging to bring new understanding to the context of design and pre-construction. New players from outside the traditional domain of A/E/C are poised to revolutionize the role of data in the built environment.
The Design Futures Council Leadership Summit on Technology and Applied Innovation will delve into the issues of artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, technology security, and how A/E/C leaders can navigate the turbulent changes ahead. In this environment of rapid and convulsive change, architects, engineers, and constructors must deal with fundamental shifts in what they will be asked to do, how they will work and the value they will produce.
