In this episode of the AEC Business podcast, Aarni Heiskanen interviews Mehdi Nourbakhsh, Ph.D., on his new book, Augment It. The book is a great resource for AEC professionals who want to start leveraging AI in their business.
Artificial intelligence is one of the most under-utilized emerging technologies in the AEC industry. When understood and used correctly, it builds efficiency, empowers creativity, and improves bottom-line results. While much of the information on AI is often misleading or confusing, through the pages of Augment It, Mehdi not only explains AI in layman’s terms through stories and anecdotes but does so specifically for AEC professionals. Including case studies of how AI is being used in AEC businesses today, Augment It explains how AEC executives can invent, innovate, and augment their capabilities using AI.
By implementing the techniques explained in the book, leaders – and their organizations – will become industry innovators with a sustainable and profitable future.
