Accelerate Live! talk: Seven technologies that restore glory to the master builder

Accelerate Live! talk: Seven technologies that restore glory to the master builder


May 30, 2018

 

SUMMARY

Artificial intelligence, computer vision, real-time rendering, drones, robotics, augmented reality, virtual reality. If you feel like your head is spinning from trying to keep up with the advancements occurring in the AEC market, let Rohit Arora provide a little clarity.

Arora has spent more than 18 years on the tech side of the industry, working for a mix of software companies, design firms, startups, and construction firms.

In this 15-minute talk at BD+C’s Accelerate Live! conference (May 10, 2018, Chicago), he outlines emerging innovations that are poised to transform how we design and build structures in the near future. 

“What seemed like science fiction just a few years ago, is now coming together in a way that'll change how we build in the near future,” says Arora. “These have the potential to enable the designer/architect to (re)take on the role the master builder, as the one directly enabling constructing at the site.”
