AECOM Elevates Project Management with AI Capture Initiative

AECOM, October 2018

But, only when this information is turned into actionable insights. Managing the data AEC professionals generate over the course of a construction project is a monumental task – a task that is becoming increasingly insurmountable as drones, robots, smart tags and intelligent devices communicating via the Internet of Things (IoT) add to the deluge.
