BST Global Leader Discusses Artificial Intelligence at the ACEC 2022 Annual Convention

26 May, 2022

ACEC hosted its 2022 Annual Convention and Legislative Summit in Washington, D.C. on May 22–25. This year’s event featured high-profile speakers, educational sessions on industry hot-topics, various roundtables, networking and more.

On Monday, May 23, BST Global Director of AI & Analytics Hank Tran hosted a packed session titled “How AI + Big Data Will Transform the AEC Industry.”

The session explored how artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data are reshaping every industry today. Attendees learned how leveraging these technologies can help foster a data-driven consultancy that’s built on project intelligence™ and powered by predictive analytics.

Some key highlights from the presentation included:

  • “Think of it like Waze for projects. Signals are coming in from every transaction, and the models learn, inform and predict so you can course-correct.”
  • “Data can come from any number of systems. The key is making sure the data can flow into a data lake.”
  • “Project intelligence™ can work for big and small firms, and is now available at a fraction of the cost.”
  • “To get started, we recommend you pick a key metric, or your top three metrics, and identify the associated data set. Start small and go from there.”

BST Global also had a booth at the event. Conference attendees stopped to learn more about our innovative ERP and Work Management solutions.
