It's been 3 years since Bill gave the most watched Autodesk University talk "The Future of BIM Is Not BIM, and It's Coming Faster Than You Think". During this sequel, we will look at which technologies have come to pass, which ones have not (and why), and what's next. With advancements in generative design, software algorithms, and robotic construction, our current processes are going to be changing quite a bit over the next three to ten years. We will see more and more done by computers and machines than we have ever seen. Rather than Building Information Modeling (BIM), we are going to see Building Information Optimization. Rather than manually drawing walls, doors, and columns for what we think is a good design, we will feed the computer “rules” instructing it to give us a building’s optimal footprint, structural load capacity, and thermal performance. Things that took months will be done in a day. What does this mean for you? How do you play a part in these changing processes?
- Explain the delta difference of technology growth over the last few years
- Render what trends and technologies are coming to our industry
- Differentiate how algorithms and robotics will drastically change the design/build process
- Know how to best prepare yourself and your firm for these changing processes
