SmartMix is the first web-based AI tool that allows producers to optimise concrete ingredient proportions, reduce cement usage, and predict the performance of their mixes while still meeting project specifications. Ottawa, Canada-headquartered Giatec believes this tool will lower greenhouse gas emissions resulting from concrete production by 400 million tons annually, the equivalent of taking 110 million cars off the road.
SmartMix builds on Giatec's first AI software program Roxi, which has collected millions of data points from the company's award-winning SmartRock wireless concrete sensors across 8,000 projects and 80 countries.
Giatec's head of research and development, Andrew Fahim, is participating in the 9-11 June event in a panel discussion on AI entitled Listen to the Computer: AI and Analytics Upend Project Delivery together with experts from Buildots and Charles Pankow Builders Ltd.
"ENR's FutureTech conference demonstrates the importance of artificial intelligence, machine-learning algorithms, and advanced analytics on construction jobsites. These technologies are going to pave the path forward for our industry to meet increasing infrastructure demands. I am proud to provide contractors and producers AI tools to make impactful decisions and get ahead of the competition by bringing more value to their customers while reducing the carbon impact of their products." says Fahim.
The conference includes a series of future-focused and interactive sessions for business and IT leaders in architecture, engineering, and construction to explore emerging technologies that can enhance construction productivity, profits, and safety.
