This whitepaper explores how AI is being used in the architecture and engineering services (AEC) industry, highlighting the advancements made in computer technologies for estimating, managing and executing AEC work.

While previous technologies focused on basic math functions, artificial intelligence (AI) aims to enable computers to think by analyzing data, running simulations, predicting outcomes and suggesting innovative approaches.

This whitepaper focuses on:

  • The history and background of AI
  • Why the large construction world is poised for an AI revolution
  • Types of AI and their uses for contractors and designers
  • Concerns about AI and its use in construction
