Construction problems expose new challenges for AI, and this science team will look at solutions including image-based 3D reconstruction of interiors, 3D pose estimation, and semi-structured text analysis. Further AI methodologies will provide solutions in finance, insurance, and transportation logistics.
Reconstruct makes the built world a better place to live, work and play. With offices in Silicon Valley and the Midwest, Reconstruct’s Visual Command Center™ brings together reality capture, drawings and models and schedule. This provides construction project stakeholders more efficient workflows in documentation, progress tracking and quality control.
Reconstruct was founded in 2016 and is used by industry leaders in North America, Asia, the Middle East and Australia who experience a 50% improvement in on time completion, 30% reduction in time necessary to report field level progress, and a 50% reduction in site visits necessary by project executives.

A University of Illinois team has received grants and support from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Discovery Partners Institute (DPI) to plan the establishment of the National Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Construction.
“This initiative will lead to the first-of-its-kind institute for the application of AI in design, construction and operation of buildings and infrastructure systems,” said project lead Mani Golparvar-Fard, associate professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
