How Artificial Intelligence Is Helping Build The Construction Industry

The construction industry has already witnessed the use of artificial intelligence within its workplace. Machines are used to carry out physical tasks such as bricklaying, and are used to support project planning phases. Indeed, machines have their own complex form of understanding via algorithms that allow them to collect information and use it to solve problems and tasks. From design to construction, we’re with Oasys, specialists in column design software, looking at the ways the construction industry is beginning to use AI effectively to complete projects.    Artificial intelligence: the four categories We are exploring the four main components of artificial intelligence in use within the construction industry: Design & planning The planning stage of construction benefits from the h...
