AI's Impact on Architecture


Advances in AI are contributing to an immersion of new technology and automation, which is just breaching the threshold of architecture. This discussion will explore the breadth of opportunities AI provides.

Our goal is to inform about AI trends, its current capabilities, where it’s going, new innovations, and what benefits we can gleam from using this technology.

Michael Schroeder, SGA Partner/leader of its VDC discipline, will be joined by AI experts to discuss a future where A&D teams collaborate with AI to construct the buildings of tomorrow. It will draw those interested in opportunities AI creates as it branches into the AEC world. Just as AI impacted research, machine learning & driverless-vehicles, new innovations like Open Source Neural Networks & next-generation inventions will be discussed.

Learning objectives

  • Understand technological trends that will start to influence how architects practice, per the background on AI capabilities and a general framework for implementation.
  • Understand recent advancements in AI evolution and crossover technologies pertinent to the AEC industry. 
  • Identify areas of their practice that could potentially benefit from AI. 
  • Communicate the benefits of this technology and chart a course for becoming early adopters in the world of AI in architecture. 

This session was recorded live on March 7, 2023.
