Unearthing New Insights Through Machine Learning


Duration:60 minutes


As artificial intelligence draws attention for ways to address individual challenges in construction, a new class of machine learning-driven technologies are coming online to tackle the broader planning and scheduling issues across projects and organizations. Algorithms can churn through an impressive amount of data, but what are firms supposed to make of their recommendations?

In this webinar, ENR will talk to some of the experts, contractors, and other users of these new machine-learning tools on what construction businesses can learn from these AI advisors.

The content of this webinar is produced and directed by ENR's editorial team.
