Accelerate Live! sponsor talk: Education is the single biggest driver in the AEC tech revolution

May 30, 2018


Disruptive and innovative technologies including connected machines, intelligent networks, integrated platforms and collaborative systems are transforming the AEC industry. But what will it take to enable these "smart" technologies to actually make projects more successful? And how will we leverage the efficiencies they introduce to boost productivity and improve quality?

As the industry calls for smarter and more intelligent products, attention is now being refocused on the human aspect of this tech evolution.

In this 10-minute talk at BD+C’s Accelerate Live! conference (May 10, 2018, Chicago), engineering school professor Jeong Woo, PhD, explores the data-driven education transformation required to deliver the next generation of construction technology professionals.

This talk was sponsored by Bluebeam, Inc.
