While remote working has suddenly become the norm for millions of people, not all industries lend themselves to working from such as home builders, electricians, and plumbers. But digital technology could still play a pivotal part in getting the $11 trillion construction industry back on its feet. OpenSpace uses artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically create navigable 360-degree photos of construction sites. The San Francisco-based company’s software works in tandem with a 360-degree camera, which builders and site managers can strap to their hard hats to document the evolution of a site. London-based Disperse uses AI to improve the workflow of construction sites. Similar to OpenSpace, Disperse captures on-site visuals through a 360-degree camera and helps project managers spot issues before they escalate.
