Synopsis:

AI & Robotic technologies are now paving the way to redefine construction project management. With the ability to predict possible delays, optimize resource allocation, and provide real-time updates on project progress, deploying these technologies can ensure that projects are completed on time and within budget. In an era where technology permeates every facet of our lives, the construction industry - often perceived as steadfast and traditional - is on the brink of a revolutionary transformation. The confluence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and robotics with construction practices is not just reshaping the way we build, but also reimagining the roles and responsibilities within the industry.

Speakers at this forum will share some of the recent deployments of AI and Robotics, and discuss deployment issues in ensuring the effective and optimal use of such technologies.

TIMEPROGRAMME

Keynote
New Developments on Adopting Technologies in the Built Environment


Digital technology presents a plethora of opportunities to advance operation efficiency and sustainability in the Built Environment through innovative solutions that enhance process efficiency, increase productivity and workflow effectiveness in construction, mitigate environmental impacts, and enhance adaptability and resilience against climate change. As infrastructure demands remain strong and manpower resources are limited, coupled with sustainability requirements, leveraging technology to augment current capacity will be instrumental. The keynote address presents some of the current developments in adopting technologies in the Built Environment.

Invited Speaker: Dr Ishkandar Baharin, Vice-President, Global Robot Clusters, Chairman of Tech Capital, Malaysia

10.00am–10.20am

Keynote
Costs and Trends of Green Buildings: An Emerging Perspective

Speaker: Mr Danie Hoffman, Programme Leader, Built Environment, University of Pretoria, South Africa

10.20am–10.35am

Buildings as Carbon Sinks

38% of global CO2 emissions originate from buildings. This is why there is a need to make buildings as carbon sinks to win the climate battle.  This presentation explores a solution that enables buildings to be net zero by capturing CO2 from building ventilation. By doing so, one can also lower the energy consumption in the building. This is because lowering the ventilation speed makes it possible to save energy (less cooling and heating) and reduce the amount of fan power needed.

Invited Speaker: Mr Petri Laakso, CEO, Soletair Power Oy, Finland

10.35am–10.45am

Robotics in Architecture

Robots can be programmed to perform precise and repetitive tasks such as cutting and shaping materials, manufacturing custom components, or constructing complex structures. This allows for greater flexibility in architectural design, as robots can carry out tasks that would be difficult or costly to perform manually. This presentation will share some aspects of how robotics is transforming architecture with precision and efficiency and their respective benefits.

Invited Speaker: Mr Adhityan Anbumozhi, University of Pennsylvania, USA

10.45am–11.00am

Smart Robots and Fleet Management: A Solution for Construction Site Challenges

Fleet management systems for construction robots and other data collection devices have the important goal of increasing efficiency, reducing costs, and improving safety on the construction site.

Invited Speaker: Mr Leo Kharanen, Karelics Oy, Finland

11.00am–11.15am 

AI Inspections for Predictive Building Façade Maintenance

The safety of large buildings is paramount, and with the added concern of climate change, it’s more crucial than ever to ensure buildings aren’t just standing tall but are also energy efficient. 

High-resolution and thermal images of any building can effectively be collected with modern drone technology. This vast amount of data is accurately and effectively analysed using powerful AI algorithms to detect defects in the sub-centimeter range or not visible to the naked eye. Reoccurring inspections create a documented timeline to predict and prevent future defects and problems, increase safety, and save money.

Invited Speaker: Mr Fredrik Gjaerdman, MD, Bizlify / Inspekt AI Singapore

11.15am–11.30am

The Rise of Reconfigurable Robots: SUTD Initiatives

Reconfigurable robots are intelligent machines capable of autonomously changing their kinematic morphologies to overcome complexities in the traversing environment or task being handled. Their promise of a high degree of versatility, robustness, and modularity is set to open up a wide range of new applications for robots in the construction sector. However, developing these robots is highly challenging. While some progress has been made, there are still many open issues. In this talk, Prof. Rajesh Mohan will share our ongoing efforts at the Singapore University of Technology and Design towards the design, development, and deployment of reconfigurable robots using a well-defined set of deployment use cases in the maintenance domain. I will also provide an insight into our concerted efforts as a catalyst to inspire an ecosystem of Singapore-based robotic startups.

Invited Speaker: Prof. Rajesh Mohan, Professor, SUTD and Co-Founder, LionsBot

11.30am–11.45am

Automating Tile Grouting to Boost Construction Productivity

Tile grouting is a tedious process. This presentation discusses how, using Computer Vision and Robot Operating System (ROS) a compact and precise grouting robot can be made fully autonomous to support this process. The robot is able to fill up the grout in all the grout lines and navigate past obstacles such as pipes and drain holes to completely automate the tile grouting process. Human intervention is only needed to move from room to room. Real-time mapping of the rooms (including irregularly shaped corridors and the main living area) and grouting an entire apartment with minimal intervention.

Invited Speaker: Mr Keefe Wayne Teo, COO & CFO, Fabrica.ai

11.45am–12.25pm

Panel Discussion
Preparing the Construction Sector for adoption of AI and Robotic Technologies

In today’s world, multiple industries are leveraging the benefits of AI & Robotics to the fullest of their potential. The technology has helped businesses grow by leaps and bounds with improved quality, security, and efficiency. However, it is observed that engineering and construction are lagging behind in implementing AI & Robotics solutions. Due to the complex challenges that the construction industry faces, growth in the industry is severely limited. Dealing with challenges like cost and time overruns, labor shortages, health and safety, and productivity can bring revolution to the industry. The construction industry has tremendous potential, and AI & Robotics can be instrumental in bringing about this shift.

3 QUESTIONS ARISE:
• Will AI & Robotics replace Humans at work?
• How can the current workforce prepare for the arrival of new innovations?
• What is the Future of Work?
