REGISTER | Artificial Intelligence in the Built Environment: Friend or Foe?
Explore the ways the construction industry can maximise the potential of AI and also discuss the dangers this disruptive technology presents at this intimate breakfast event.
Artificial Intelligence in the Built Environment: Friend or Foe? is being held in association with Morgan Sindall Construction on 24 May at the Manufacturing Technology Centre in Liverpool.
Artificial intelligence is already being used by innovative built environment companies to help transform the way we design, build, and operate buildings. As we go forward, the use of AI tools is only expected to increase – especially with the government investing £100m to create a taskforce focused on the subject.
But disruptive technologies are always a mixed bag. There are concerns about AI destroying jobs, with Goldman Sachs predicting the technology would make 300 million full-time jobs obsolete. There are other concerns about the AI field accelerating too quickly. So was Elon Musk right when he described the push for AI as a “dangerous” arms race? Or is AI a chance to address the skills crisis and construct our buildings more efficiently?
Artificial Intelligence in the Built Environment: Friend or Foe? will be exploring these questions. This free event will consist of keynote speeches and a panel discussion. There will also be plenty of opportunities for networking and knowledge sharing.
Confirmed speakers thus far include:
- Caro Ames, data science strategy lead at Arup
- Professor Samia Nefti-Meziani, the chair of robotics and AI at the University of Birmingham
- Owen Ashton, regional digital construction manager at Morgan Sindall
- Steve Nesbitt, chief technologist, Manufacturing Technology Centre
- Yazan Qarout, senior research engineer, Manufacturing Technology Centre
