Machine Learning for MEP Firms

Let's continue our discussion about how the work of BuildingSP intersects with the major themes of Jeff Kowalski's 2016 Autodesk University Keynote. We previously wrote about artificial intelligence and how firms can prepare for a new generation of automation tools. Artificial intelligence is a broader field than many realize, and one related sphere is machine learning. Machine learning is the use of computers to change workflow behaviors without having to explicitly program the basis for these behaviors. The purpose of this post is to describe how this will affect firms that design, detail, or install mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) systems.
