As a civil engineer, I find it very useful to have AI-powered tools such as ALICE and CAD software  (my previously posted blog).

Reliance on artificial intelligence (AI) for complex construction tasks is not as far-fetched as one might think with all the talk of robots and job automation. AI adoption spreads, as with most new technologies, with tools that help workers do their job better, faster, and more efficiently.

Getting to Know ALICE

Building a structure such as a skyscraper requires the joint effort of a great number of professionals: engineers, draftsmen, architects, crane operators, bricklayers, electricians, drivers, and others who must work together efficiently to achieve success. On the other hand, construction materials are another complex area, both in terms of suppliers and actual use, as the large number of variables involved can generate thousands of different scenarios when it comes to scheduling a project. The final costs can change substantially depending on the actual organization of all those elements – that’s where ALICE software enters the situation.

ALICE (Artificial Intelligence Construction Engineering) is a project schedule optimizer. It is mainly used in construction planning and scheduling. It helps the construction team collaborate and explore different construction scenarios quickly, so they can optimize their construction project plan.

ALICE has enabled us to see opportunities for what’s possible with key tasks and core business processes so we can deliver the best possible plan for our customers. Combined with our building expertise, ALICE provides the capability to evaluate millions of scheduling options that would take humans exponentially longer to accomplish.

By running millions of building simulations, ALICE helps you explore different construction scenarios quickly and see their impact on your cost and schedule.

Combining the team's construction knowledge and ALICE's powerful artificial intelligence platform can achieve various construction options, reduce the schedule, and save money. With this being said, having AI-powered tools such as ALICE would give a lot of benefits not only to the designers but also to the owners and clients.
