In this complimentary pre-conference webinar, 2024 Conference Co-Chair Graham Brown interviews two professionals on the lesser known but expanding ways that AI and technology are improving the construction industry. In this engaging discussion, the benefits and opportunities are explored, from streamlining construction, cost savings, improving the labour shortage, and more!

This primer into the benefits of AI will later be contrasted in the main conference session on the risks of AI’s productivity promise. Construction professionals and their counsel cannot afford to miss either.
