Technology is a double-edged sword bringing both opportunities and risks. A large portion of today’s jobs are expected to be obsolete in the near future. Start-up companies are disrupting heavily regulated industries worldwide. The building & infrastructure industry in North America has been slow to adopt innovative new technologies, but change in inevitable.
Looking ahead, technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Virtual/Augmented Reality (VR/AR) will be integral to how we conduct business. Autonomous transportation, automated construction, vertical farming and quantum computing are posed to shake up the transportation, construction, agriculture, and financial industries. How can we leverage the rapid pace of innovation to stay ahead, and is now the right time to adopt new technologies? Topics covered will include:
- Emerging technology, trends and their implications
- Technology and its effect on life and behaviors
- Technology and its impact on building and infrastructure planning and projects
