I have been working in the construction industry and implementing the latest technologies for nearly ten years now. In order to do this, I rely on a great team that I am tremendously proud of.
The construction industry and all of its complexity is a visceral passion of mine. I am interested in its tendencies, its evolution, its vulnerabilities, and its strengths. I especially focus on business models that can be propelled by technology and modern work methods.
For the past four years, I have been traveling across the country and the United States to listen to entrepreneurs’ issues, understand their obstacles, analyze their needs, and implement solutions that really bring value to their companies.
Meeting these entrepreneurs and taking into consideration their feedback prompted me to put together my conference “Adapt or Disappear: How Will Technologies Transform the Construction Industry?” In this conference, I will provide an overview of the situation and explain why I anticipate a major technological and robotic revolution in the construction industry and elsewhere. I discuss economic trends, changes in business models, data (DATA), connected objects (IoT), artificial intelligence, 3D printing, and the robotization of our construction sites. I present how the industry will be impacted and, most importantly, I offer possible solutions in order to adapt to the changes.
Obviously, I am sometimes mistaken and make predictions that are a little too “bold” or “futuristic” for some. Among other things and for the past several years, I have mentioned that 70% of businesses will not go through the digital revolution. Unfortunately, this statistic tends to be confirmed[French].
