AI technology guide introduced

US-based trade association Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) has introduced an artificial intelligence (AI) technology guide for the construction industry

The guide will help ensure contractors can be active participants in the construction AI conversation by getting them up to speed on the technology, the industry trade association says.

“ABC helps members realise the potential of AI, which helps contractors complete projects on time, minimise staffing challenges, save money and improve health and safety,” ABC construction technology and innovation vice president Matt Abeles says.

The guide can describe uses of AI during the construction lifestyle, including preconstruction, construction and building maintenance, ABC says.

It can also provide definition of terms, such as deep learning and predictive AI, as well as drafting good practices in office AI policies.

“The possibilities of AI technology may sound endless, but we must first educate ourselves on the basics, this resource is a starting point to understand AI and its potential impact on the construction industry,” ABC construction technology and innovation director Patrick Scarpati says.

“The industry has immense opportunities to evaluate how we can better deliver projects, we can lean on AI in achieving essential goals like upskilling, workforce development, knowledge transfer, supply chain optimisation, enhanced safety design and planning and much more.”
