Shedding Light on Artificial Intelligence in the Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC) Industries

The information contained within this article serves to raise the awareness of possible benefits, implications, and impacts of using artificial intelligence solutions across the AEC industry; many ideas presented, though, do apply to a broader range of organizations.AI and machine learning are elements of business intelligence (BI) strategies and technologies, which are used by enterprises for data analysis and information extraction. Traditional challenges, functions, or actions that AI techniques can address include reasoning, knowledge representation, planning, learning, natural language processing (and understanding), perception, and the ability to move and manipulate objects.In each challenge area, AI technologies are proving to have [...]

Understanding the “D’s” in BIM

Building Information Modeling (BIM) enables process transformation across the design, construction, operation, and retirement of an infrastructure asset. The following seven D's, or dimensions, of BIM break down the importance of BIM, from maintaining accurate data to the advanced applications that rely upon it.1DDataAt its core, BIM is comprised of data—zeros and ones. If those data points are not reliable and up-to-date, trust erodes and the value of BIM diminishes. As data is generated and shared, it should be exchanged in machine-readable formats that align with established interoperability standards such as the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the National [...]
