Perhaps one of the most widely talked about technologies among those in the IoT (Internet of Things) and AI (artificial intelligence) space is 5G because it offers the ability to use new applications that weren’t possible in the past.
Here’s a not-so-bold prediction for this year: If your company isn’t hyper-focused on cybersecurity, it will likely experience a breach.
Continuing on the blog series I started in early December, looking at technology predictions for the IoT (Internet of Things), AI (artificial intelligence) and ML (machine learning), and digital transformation, today I will tackle a topic that is still relatively nascent in the construction industry: digital twin.
The numbers are clear: companies are more often looking at digital transformation. But here’s perhaps a more important question: are companies having success with digital transformation? Let’s take a closer look.
Last week, I started a blog series, looking at some of the loftiest technology predictions for 2020 and beyond, and how it will impact construction specifically. Last week’s topic was the IoT (Internet of Things), and this week I would like to dive into AI (artificial intelligence) and ML (machine learning).
In the months of December and January, I will be looking at some of the loftiest (and not so lofty) technology predictions for 2020 and beyond, covering everything from the IoT (Internet of Things), AI (artificial intelligence), digital twin, blockchain, cybersecurity, and so much more, with a focus on how these predictions will ultimately play out in construction. Up first is the IoT.
Data-center growth is imminent. How is your company preparing? Peggy Smedley recently wrote a blog that digs into the growth for hyperscale data centers and what that means for the construction industry—mainly a boost in data center construction and an increase in the use of emerging technologies.
Telematics has been around for years, but the evolution of it has been pretty interesting, especially in construction, which does account for the largest share of connected units in off-highway vehicles.
Has BIM (building information modeling) evolved in the last 20 years?
We have all heard the numbers. Labor-productivity growth in construction has averaged only 1% a year in the past two decades, which is compared with growth of 2.8% for the total world economy and 3.6% in the case of manufacturing.
