Theme: Future thinking & Innovation
14.00 – 14.30 BIMBOTS, what to expect?
In the meantime, it has become impossible to imagine the world of construction and infrastructure without open BIM. The focus is increasingly shifting from design and engineering to execution and asset management. More than ever, the Information Delivery Specifications and the exchange between more and more stakeholders are becoming increasingly important. Through the use of machine learning and artificial intelligence, the interpretation of user input is becoming increasingly sophisticated and decisions can be made faster, better and more efficiently. At TNO, a lot of attention is paid to the link between data structure and software, just think of the contributions that TNO makes to the Open Source BIM server and the most modern developments such as BIM bots.
Rob Roef, TNO (NL)
Known as the BIM Captain from Rotterdam, the Netherlands, Rob soon discovered that construction would be more beneficial if there was better cooperation. From a design role at an engineering firm, he started to develop CAD software, support it and later also sell it. Because technology does not stand still, and neither does Rob, he has grown being a champion of (open) BIM, transparent working methods and open standards. Meer info: Rob Roef TNO

Martin Fisher will guide us through the projects and experiences of Virtual construction and CIFE and Stanford university (US).
Martin Fischer, CIFE, Stanford University (USA)
Professor Fischer’s research goals are to improve the productivity of project teams involved in designing, building, and operating facilities and to enhance the sustainability of the built environment. His work develops the theoretical foundations and applications for virtual design and construction (VDC). VDC methods support the design of a facility and its delivery process and help reduce the costs and maximize the value over its lifecycle. His research has been used by many small and large industrial government organizations around the world. See also https://profiles.stanford.edu/martin-fischer
