A New Online Course on AI

construction workers AI

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are set to affect every industry, including construction. It’s now essential for every professional to know the basics of AI – what it is and isn’t and how you could use it in your business. A perfect way to get a grasp of AI’s potential is by taking an online course tailored for our industry.

A group of Finnish organizations has developed the MOOC, a Massive Open Online Course, for built environment businesses. It is a collaboration between Reaktor Education and KIRAHub, the Ministry of the Environment, YIT, Ramboll, Metropolia, Kiinko, and FAIA. AEC Business was also involved in the process.

The course has exercises, including a simulated project where you plan an AI project for construction site safety with Kira, a business manager. The exercise is based on an AI pilot implemented by YIT. The purpose of the pilot was to use machine vision to identify the use of a helmet on construction sites.

The course consists of three parts:

  • How to utilize artificial intelligence
  • Industry AI solutions and examples
  • Artificial intelligence for business

The course is now available both in Finnish and English and is currently free of charge.
