The Intersection of AI and Building Sciences: A New Era of Intelligent Infrastructure

Jan 25, 2024   |   2:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET
Virtual Event

The integration of artificial intelligence (AI) in facility design, construction, and operation is revolutionizing our industry, fueling both excitement and apprehension as professionals navigate this rapidly evolving landscape. As AI technologies continue to advance, early adopters have experienced a spectrum of outcomes, ranging from groundbreaking successes to unexpected challenges.

In this session, we will delve into the captivating world of AI applications in the building sciences, share the lessons learned by these pioneers, and present outcomes from a series of global webinars that the National Institute of Building Sciences, Asset Leadership Network, and American Institute of Architects have participated in.

Our discussion will explore the transformative impact of AI on digital twins, industry standards, building information modeling (BIM), resiliency, sustainability, and more. Participants will gain an introductory understanding of how AI can be harnessed to optimize various aspects of the design, construction, and operation processes in the building industry. The presenters will share recent observations from the BuildingsAI conference about how Owners and the C-Suite are starting to notice the value of their data, how AI can use it, and how AI is driving the need for standards to reduce “building hallucinations.”

Moreover, this session will present valuable methods and processes that promote effective communication and collaboration among architects, stakeholders, and AI tools. By adopting these techniques, attendees can drive project outcomes and contribute to the development of safer, healthier, and more sustainable built environments. Case studies, practical examples, and insights from the global webinar series will be shared, illustrating the challenges and opportunities of integrating AI in the building sciences.
