ABOUT THE SESSION

The AEC industry is on the cusp of significant change, driven by the disruptive wave of technological advancements. Among these, generative AI stands out as a game-changer. This cutting-edge technology not only promises to revolutionize design, construction and operations — it also offers unparalleled efficiency, creativity and sustainability.

Artificial intelligence opens up new possibilities for innovation, optimizing resource allocation and streamlining decision-making. However, as we embrace this disruptive force, we must also address the challenges that come with it. Ethical considerations, risk, privacy concerns and the impact on the workforce are complex issues that demand our attention. We must approach the integration of generative AI responsibly and inclusively.

By unveiling its potential and tackling the challenges head-on, we can forge a future where AI-driven innovation revolutionizes how we create and shape critical infrastructure for a sustainable future.

Kumar explored the transformative power of generative AI in the AEC industry, unraveling its immense potential and the challenges that lie ahead.
