Last week the Builtworlds team hosted their first ever CEO Tech Forum at the Chicago Athletic Association. The event featured the best and brightest in Construction Technologist, Software Developers, and AEC Professionals.

The event was kicked off by Stacy Scopano from Autodesk. Mr. Scopano delivered a keynote presentation focusing on the theme of disruption in construction technology. He discussed how much technology has impacted the construction industry. One topic he focused on was risk, specifically the difference between planned design intent and actual performance, and how new technology can help reduce the consequences of risk on projects. Mr. Scopano explained that technology is at the intersection of of productivity, physical capital and human capital.

There were several great panels on Thursday comprised of AEC Professionals, Construction Technologist and Software Developers.

A couple of the panel discussion included:

Four Disruptive Technologies that You Need to Know

Technology to Empower the Workforce

 The Big Cloud, Local Data Threats and Technology Risk

Universal Translator: Software Solution Meet Interoperability

The Evolution of Technology and Future Predictions
