05GH - How Emerging Technologies are Influencing the Construction Industry
This presentation will explore emerging technologies that are influencing the direction of the construction industry. We will discuss virtual and augmented reality solutions that enable building owners, contractors, and design teams to explore 3D models of their projects. The interaction of both physical and digital worlds is changing the way project teams collaborate during the design, construction, and operations phase of a building. Emerging technology for 3D scanning has provided the industry with a fast workflow to collect extremely accurate 3D point clouds and generate models of a built environment before, during, and after construction. With access to accurate scans of the project, building owners and construction teams are using the 3D scans to ensure buildings are built exactly how they are designed in the virtual world. With the rapid rise of new technologies already influencing how we interact with the built environment today, we will take a look at where the next 10 years might take us.

14GH - Non-Obvious Idea Curation Workshop
Building on the initial overview of the five key habits of trend curators, this workshop will give participants the chance to practice those skills in a highly interactive session. The format of this session will include giving each participant an unfamiliar magazine that is outside their usual media diet (example magazines used in the past include Modern Farmer, Teen Vogue, etc). They will each then receive a refresher on the five trends that were covered in the keynote and be encouraged to seek out examples of those trends (like a media-based scavenger hunt). The interactivity of this event and collaborative nature make it fun to overlap networking and it particularly works well before or after lunch as it's a higher energy activity to help people re-energize for the rest of the day. The aim of this activity is to generate some conversation within round table groups and then share back new and interesting ideas. The underlying learning objective is to offer a very real and tangible example to business professionals that new and interesting ideas can come from very unlikely sources and if we are going to think in more innovative ways, we can't continue to consume the same media as everyone else.
