Artificial Intelligence is now being applied across industries at many levels of technological sophistication. Some companies are moving beyond the capability of training AI to observe to training AI to predict the future. Could this new frontier in AI, predictive analytics, be applied to construction safety risk?
Newmetrix’s AI engine, nicknamed “Vinnie”, already analyzes photos coming from construction management systems like Procore, site camera data from OxBlue cameras, and other legacy systems. But could Vinnie move from observing risks to predicting an incident in a coming week? How accurate could Vinnie be? And how many incidents could be avoided if project teams knew of the risk ahead of time?
