AOC Show 147: Data-Driven Design & Construction
Mac Little, Virtual Design Construction Manager at VIATechnik, joins us on this episode 147 of The Art of Construction.
Mac Little is the first in a series of six guests we will be hosting on Art of Construction in conjunction with BILT North America 2019. As we’ve discussed on previous episodes, BILT is an amazing conference centered on new technology in the construction and architecture worlds, and AOC is the official podcast of the event! We’re excited for all the great conversations ahead, and had a great time kicking it off with Mac Little as we discussed the topic of the speech he’ll give at BILT, “The Living Machine.”
Mac grew up in the architecture world, trying out many parts of it before deciding he’d have the most value integrating new technology into the design and building process. With VIATechnik he is doing just that, working with many in the construction industry to figure out ways that information modeling, VR and machine learning can improve their operations.
We are on the cusp of the 4th Industrial Revolution, otherwise known as Industry 4.0. In this new paradigm shift, technological innovations are allowing for the collection and utilization of Big Data in ways never before possible. Join us as we dive headfirst into how this new era will transform the world of construction, and what possibilities are in store for using digital machines to unlock the full potential of architects, engineers and builders everywhere.
