MIIP Webinar #8: Discovering How AI Advances Predictive Project Management Delivery

Following our previous MIIP Series webinar on Exploring the Power of AI in Project Management, we are excited to announce a deeper dive into the role of AI in predictive project management delivery. We lined up a panel of international speakers who will delve into how AI will be incorporated into specific areas of project delivery. In today's competitive construction landscape, data-driven innovation has transformed various aspects of projects, including planning, design, controls, communication, and construction management.

This is your opportunity to learn how AI can empower you and your team to drive successful project delivery. Registration is sponsored by PMI Singapore Chapter and complimentary for you. Welcome to join this enlightening session.

After attending this webinar, you will be able to:

  1. Understand the basics of AI, importance of soft skills in AI & its implication for the project management community
  2. Understand how emerging AI issues can impact project delivery
  3. Integrate AI issues into construction management and project delivery
  4. Gain valuable knowledge on how 360 reality capture can transform the approach to project management, leading to improved efficiency, reduced costs, and ultimately, project success

Introduction by Moderator: Ms Lina Monica Ali, Digital Lead for Water & Env and Digital Technology Solution at Meinhardt, Singapore

Presentation 1: Demystify AI and understand the implications for the project management community (Declan Foster, CEO & Founder at Project Pal AI, Ireland)

Declan will demystify AI and explain how soft skills will become more critical and why we need to take an ethical approach to AI on our projects.

  • What is AI
  • History of AI
  • Explanation of the different components, using project management use cases
  • AI>Machine Learning >Artificial Neural Networks>Deep Learning
  • Chat GPT uses & Implications
  • Project Management Use Cases and Vendors
    • Sentiment Analysis
    • Simulated conversations/role play
    • Summarising text
    • Other vendors/products and use cases
  • The Ethics of AI
  • Impacts on Roles/Jobs
  • How project managers can future-proof their careers

Presentation 2: How AI is enabling us to reimagine project delivery (Martin Paver, CEO & Co-Founder at Projecting Success, UK)

Rather than seeing project data analytics as a bolt on to existing processes, we have an opportunity to fundamentally reimagine how we work. What does this future look like, how do we get there and what should we do to prepare for it?

  • Some statistics on the scale of the opportunity.
  • An overview of recent developments in data and analytics within the UK.
  • An exploration into whether we should refine or reimagine project delivery.
  • The power of a collaborative approach.

Project delivery will change significantly in the next 5 years. What is your strategy to position yourself to leverage it? The opportunities are vast and almost limitless. Be bold and ambitious.

Presentation 3: Understanding the role of AI in construction management (Dr Bhargav Dave, Co-Founder & CEO at VisiLean, India / Europe)

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has brought a wave of innovation in the construction industry. From generative design to automated drawing generation and quantity take-off, the Architecture Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry is witnessing the power of automation to streamline conventionally manual time-consuming processes. While the benefits are evident and starting to show across projects, it is important to understand the relevance of AI through well defined uses in each phase of construction project delivery.

With ever-growing start-ups bringing the next-best-thing in AI technology, we are starting to see promises specifically in the execution phase of automated progress tracking and performance analysis. While the potential is immense, the industry is starting to get overwhelmed with the plethora of options available.

AI brings with it the power to crunch data at speeds incomparable for manual processes to match to. However, the key here is the data and not just the efficiency. Outputs are solely driven by inputs and in construction, this fact plays a critical role in harnessing benefits from technology. To efficiently deploy AI in construction management, the core processes of planning, execution, monitoring and control require perfect alignment to ensure the data can provide learnings that are accurate, timely, and reliable, and not false-positives. Like any other technological intervention, the true potential of AI in construction will stem from the accurate deployment of its power through its integration and interfacing with people and processes.

Presentation 4: Revolutionising Project Management: How 360 Reality Capture Empowers Success (KC Ho, ASEAN Manager at OpenSpace.AI, Singapore)

This session will delve into the practical applications of 360 reality capture for PMs. The talk will showcase how this technology can unlock a range of benefits, including:

  • Enhanced Remote Visibility: Learn how PMs can virtually visit project sites, fostering closer monitoring and progress tracking regardless of location.
  • Streamlined Communication & Collaboration: Discover how 360 captures create a shared understanding of the site, improving communication and collaboration among stakeholders.
  • Efficient Progress Tracking & Documentation: Explore how 360 captures provide a visual record of progress, aiding in identifying deviations, tracking completion, and creating detailed handover documents.
  • Proactive Issue Identification & Resolution: See how 360 captures empower PMs to virtually pinpoint potential issues, facilitating faster resolution and minimizing delays.
  • Data-Driven Decision Making: Learn how the immersive nature of 360 captures allows PMs to assess spatial constraints, material needs, and plan logistics more effectively.
  • Enhanced Client Engagement: Discover how PMs can utilize 360 captures to share project progress with clients in a compelling and interactive way, fostering trust and transparency.
