The positive impact of accelerating technologies – NXT BLD London, June 2017
From Reality Modelling and drones to VR and AR, Rob gives a critical review of current digital construction technologies. He also gives predictions on emerging AI technologies and how they will transform current building methods and revolutionise project planning, management and delivery. It’s not about telling the computer what to do, he says, it’s about telling it what we want to achieve.
