What Does ’Beyond Automation’ Mean? Tell us and WIN Big!
The future is coming and the pace of technology change is moving faster than the construction industry anticipated. We’re on the verge of the 4th industrial revolution with a new Era of Automation, where machines are entering the intellectual work, making decisions in the form of artificial intelligence (AI). Besides replacing the dangerous and manual labor, and making daily jobs and tasks easier with computers and user-friendly interfaces, the knowledge work is also being automated. Does this mean many of us will lose our value to the industry and will no longer be needed for our critical thinking and knowledge? Will we be competing for jobs with AI, or will we be augmenting our own capabilities to analyse the scale of data we now have available?
The time is for your opinion to be heard – and the perfect outlet for that is the BILT EUR 2017 Vision 20/20 competition. It is a fast paced and fun look into the future, done live and judged by your peers in real time. As you can perhaps tell by the title, this competition is your chance to be a futurist, presenting your ideas about where you think the industry is going, or should go.
The format is 20 slides, of 20 seconds each, for a total of 6 minutes & 40 seconds to share your vision of the future. Think of it as a live abstract proposal, because the Grand Prize winner get’s to present their ideas as a full session at BILT Europe 2018!
Come show us where all this data is leading us. Come share your Vision!
