The construction industry is just waking to the realization that with the adoption of mobile devices, BIM and other new technologies, the amount of data being generated by projects has grown exponentially. This data comes in a variety of sources from images to schedules to models and more - most of which is locked inside the system in which it was created. Artificial intelligence (AI) is an emerging way to bring additional value from this data and allow for better decision making on projects.
Newmetrix, in particular, uses AI to automatically analyze photos and other data gathered across the job to recognize safety hazards and the potential for incident. Their “Safety Suite” is made up of three modules: Safety Observations, Safety Monitoring, and Predictive Analytics.
