A three-day conference providing demonstrations, presentations and networking by firms inventing, piloting and implementing technologies to address construction’s future left attendees bullish on tech prospects for the construction industry and heading home with ideas to deploy.
Broadcasting LIVE from FutureTech 2018 | Construction firms are turning to machine learning and data analytics to automatically sift through data as it is acquired to recognize trends and patterns, reduce risk and support data-driven decisions. Our panelists will share examples of their progress toward this goal and discuss where they see it heading.
Broadcasting LIVE from FutureTech 2018 | Our panelists’ firms are early adopters of the tools of virtual and augmented reality. For years, they have been devoting sustained resources of their own to establish a foundation for leveraging those tools on jobsites. We will get a report on where they are now, and where they are going with this technology tomorrow.
When working on big projects, it can be hard to stay on top of which workers are qualified to do what. Luckily, there are now ways to bring training certification data into smarter workforce management tools. During this webinar, ENR will talk with the experts about their experiences tracking training certifications more intelligently.
ENR will call on two top forecasters, asking them to share their views on the market prospects for the industry at midyear, both nationally and regionally. We then will add another layer by asking a leading industry technology strategist about how the year is playing out from a construction technology perspective.
The civil infrastructure world has always been a step behind its structural counterpart in implementing BIM technologies, but it is starting to catch up. This webinar will explore how transportation practitioners can understand key elements of BIM, how to implement it and how it can benefit their projects.
A shared understanding and agreement is the foundation of successful projects. We will talk with designers, construction managers and contractors about how they reach this state, and how modern technologies are making it easier to reduce disputes throughout construction and speed up the signing of agreements to save money and boost efficiency.
With fully autonomous construction equipment on the horizon and semi-autonomous equipment already at work on jobsites, ENR will talk to some of the early adopters, technology providers, and industry experts about autonomous equipment, sensor-heavy jobsites and evaluating the benefits and challenges of these new technologies.
Artificial Intelligence is moving out of the “buzz” realm and into reality as construction firms start to experience real results from investing in AI solutions. During this webinar, we will sit down with software development trial partners from several construction firms to learn about their AI pains and gains — so you can have a lot less of the first and hopefully, much more of the latter when you decide it’s time for AI.
Construction groups are increasing using VR immersive technology to attract and train new talent. The next generation of the industry can drive virtual dozers, walk virtual sites and perform virtual tasks to earn credits while minimizing risk and cost. Attendees will find out how this technology is evolving, including the caveats, cautions and next iterations.
Drones are transforming the way large companies do business across the entire enterprise. Once small programs prove their value, they tend to grow quickly, so starting with a strong foundation is key. In this webinar, we’ll present case studies from some of the most successful in-house drone programs in the industry as well as advice from top drone consultants.
