Construction technology

When most people hear the word construction they think about bricks and mortar and wood. Not the most exciting thing in the world. However these days that’s a serious misconception, as the  industry has evolved dramatically in the way it plans and build structures.

In particular, most recently construction companies have begun leveraging AI and big data analytics to make construction more innovative, efficient and best of all safer.  From project planning to supply chain management to risk mitigation, construction is becoming a high-tech industry in it own right. To learn more about the latest in construction technology, join this webinar scheduled for 9am EST on Wednesday, April 5th. The full schedule is below. Register here.
