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.

NXT BLD is organised by AEC Magazine and brings next generation architecture, engineering and construction technologies to life in an exclusive conference and exhibition. These emerging technologies facilitate new ways of designing, enhancing the use of 3D models, applying Artificial Intelligence (AI) and offering new possibilities in digital fabrication and construction.

NXT BLD London took place on 28 June at The British Museum, London in association with Lenovo. The conference covered innovations in Virtual and Augmented Reality, design visualisation, digital fabrication and AI.
