The potential impact of AI on the built environment sector was also discussed at a recent workshop convened by ICE and the National Infrastructure Commission.
Attendees included tech companies, civil engineers, contractors and academics.
The discussion was split into 4 sessions. The key findings are:
AI will lead to substantial improvements to the design and delivery of infrastructure, in turn boosting productivity levels. But in order for this to be realised there is a need to embed data expertise across the sector.
Piloting and testing is necessary if machine learning and AI technologies, together with robotics and virtual reality, are to transform the built environment. Likewise, cultural change and leadership across industry is needed to drive the AI revolution.
The pace of technological change and the data requirements associated with AI mean that creating a governance framework is very challenging. Issues around privacy, security and intellectual property also need addressing.
Civil engineers of the future will require different training and skillsets to get to grips with AI, including greater crossover with other disciplines like social sciences. There is also an immediate need for interested parties to work together to create solutions to the ethical question marks that exist in relation to AI.
