Relative to banking, finance or healthcare, construction is still a small market for artificial intelligence and emerging applications are focused on finding patterns in large datasets which would either be too difficult for humans to process or would take them too long. Over the course of this article, we aim to answer the following questions:
- Where is artificial intelligence being applied in the construction and building sector today?
- What are some examples of real-life use-cases for AI in construction?
- What are the challenges limiting the adoption of AI and machine learning in construction?
We classify the major applications for artificial intelligence in construction and building under the following categories:
- Planning and Design
- Autonomous Equipment
- Monitoring and Maintenance
