The CIOB has launched a new online conference evaluating the role of artificial intelligence in construction.
Discussions will focus on how AI will work in construction and the wider built environment, and how the sector can make the most of this change.
The virtual event will take place on 14 December and registration is now open.
The CIOB said: “Undoubtedly, we are moving towards a pro-innovation era and AI is rapidly edging its way into the built environment.
“While AI brings many challenges it also brings with it a new hope for the sector, opening it up to a more inclusive and diverse workforce.”
The keynote speech will reveal the findings of a CIOB AI report called: ‘The roadmap toward AI – how data science, organisational change management and ML are key milestones on the journey towards AI impact’.
This will be presented by sector expert Dave Philps from Cohesive. Eddie Tuttle, CIOB director of policy, external affairs and research will host.
