The role of machine learning in construction safety

The role of machine learning in construction safety The construction industry is one of the biggest in the USA but also is one of the deadliest. Construction has been and continues to be a dangerous occupation, resulting in many accidents, injuries and fatalities. 937 workers died on sites in 2015, meaning that one in five […]

Machine learning and energy efficient building design

Machine learning and energy efficient building design With increasing interest in sustainable design, the issue of energy-efficiency in the building design process is receiving ever more attention from designers and researchers. The construction industry has to find its way of reducing national greenhouse gas emissions. Key players are reluctant to spend big on energy efficiency […]

Applications of artificial intelligence for cost management in construction projects

Applications of artificial intelligence for cost management in construction projects A primary need of any contractor, or indeed any business, is to be profitable. Controlling cost is not easy and cost estimation is the most important preliminary process in any construction project. It means that control of spend is crucial. We collected some applications of […]
