@BIMShowLive 2017 opening address and keynote

Chairs Opening AddressSpeaker: Simon Rawlinson, VIEW BIOG
Have we been doing the right thing? Construction leadership council is focused on digital, manufacturing and performance. (In that order)
We are challenged by the complexity of what we do. We have to be able to explain things in the language of an infant and to be able to enthuse your audience so that they engage and want to get in board. 
What are the consequences of bringing together data and digital for our industry. 
Keynote – Nell Watson

Speaker: Nell Watson, VIEW BIOG
 Building a better world with machine intelligence. 

Child minds increase in complexity by 2% per day. 

Brain parts – reptile – mammal – frontal cortxt. 

Two systems. Dual process theory. 

System 1 makes assumptions about the world. 

Machines lack the capacity to make reasonable assumptions. 

Learning through teaching/structured, play/unstructured and reinforcement. 

Convolutional neural networks

Singularity university

Aipoly app for the blind for shape recognition

Most of the algorithms are 20 years old but the training data has only been available in the last 3 years

Any process that a human can do in a 1 second loop can be done by machines. 

Intuitive intelligence is now a utility. 

Big data – knowledge – experience – creativity. 

Company – automated insights

Magic pony technology

Virtual realms for a full fat world 

Predicted sound

Interactive dynamic video.

How machines can protect our world. 

For the time bring it makes sense to keep the human and the machine together. 

Machines can learn from other machines. Autonomous cars learn collectively from other autonomous cars. 

Machines learn in both the real world and virtual world. 

Ubiquitous intelligence. 

There is more computational power in the bit coin hash network than the top 500 supercomputers. 

Swarm intelligence within the buildings trying to understand their users. 

Flip side being security of such power. 

Hacking of control systems. 

The new age of the machine payable web. Machines will be paying for things on your behalf as well as earning money on your behalf. 

Your autonomous car could uber on your behalf when you don’t need it. 

Anticipatory design. Netflix. Nest. Pandora. “No thinking”

Pinterest algorithm for finding objects in photos. 

Generative design. 

Computer optimised design than can only have been created/invented by machines. 

Design by financial return. 

Design by style and generative design. We go from creator to curator of machine made content. 

We don’t know who is going to win Web 3.0

Appeal to bots may have more leverage that appeal to humans. 

These agents are beginning to understand us. Personality insights. 

USC institute for creative technologies simsensei

All the hard things are solved. The soft stuff, not so. 

Intelligent machines that truly understand us, help us, do things on our behalf. The best of man and machine working together. 

About Shaun Farrell

I have been involved in the construction sector since 1986 and over the years I have seen things change dramatically. Much of the change has been directly as a result of technology. This blog will be about the key combinations of People, Process and Technology. Any views expressed here are strictly my own.
