Aske Strandberg, AEC Hackathon Organizer & Director, will guide us through the afternoon.

13.00 – 14.00:   Debate: Open or closed – Do We Need Collaboration to Succeed with AI? (Hosted by Molio and COWI)

AI has the potential to change and transform the construction and operation of buildings, and the prerequisite for good AI is good data. The more quality data you have, the better the AI. Denmark – and Europe – represent small, inhomogeneous markets with comparatively little data. In this session, we want to discuss if and how we will collaborate around AI and data in the future.

Moderator: Michael Ambjørn, CEO of Proptech Denmark

Daniel Maimann, Associate Digital Transformation & Innovation Director, COWI
Ole Berard, Head of Contech Lab, Head of Building Smart DK, Head of Digi @ Molio
Nicolaus Falk-Scheibel, PhD, Attorney, Poul Schmith
Leise Sandemann, Co-founder – Pathways AI

14.00 – 14.10: Break

14.10 – 14.40: Talk: The Impact of Technology in Construction (hosted by RIB Software)

What the future will look like for the construction industry with the current revolution in technology. 

Speaker: Matthew Jackson, Strategy lead of RIB Software

14.40 – 15.20:  Talk: We Combine Technologies and Solve what a Single Technology can’t do (hosted by NIRAS)

Once BIM was supposed to solve all our problems. Then it was Linked Data. Then Computational design. Then it was Blockchain, Now it’s Artificial Intelligence.That’s probably not going to happen either. Maybe we can combine technologies and understand the strengths and limitations of each technology.

Speaker: Stig Brinck, Senior Expertice Director, Digitalisation and process dev, NIRAS

15.10 – 15.20: Break

15.20 – 15.50: Debate: Proptech – Investor Corner AMA: How to get backing (hosted by PropTech Denmark)

How do you get backing for your idea? Come hear from our PropTech Investor Corner expert panel who have experience, perspectives – and insights useful for across the full scope of AEC hacks. The panel will run in an Ask Me Anything format – so you can get answers to all the things you were afraid to ask about soft funding, seed funding, how to work with advisors – and more.

16.00 – 16.20: Talk: Cetopo – An AEC Startup Journey (hosted by Cetopo)

Cetopo is a startup that provides 3D-landscape models for architects. Cetopo could very well have started as a hackathon idea, and some of the hackathon ideas at AEC hackathon might very well end up on a similar journey as Cetopo has had.

Speaker: Max Cedercreutz, founder and CEO of Cetopo

16.20 – 16.40: Talk: Extension model for building AEC MVPs (hosted by Autodesk Forma)

Autodesk Forma is a web platform designed for the AEC industry, that is built to be extendable. It already has contextual site data, environmental analyses, and interoperability with Revit and Rhino. We have built the extension framework in Autodesk Forma to allow you to test and validate your existing functionality with minimal adjustments. It can adapt to simple things like area calculations and all the way to custom design tooling and analysis visualization. In this talk we will take you under the covers and show you how we have built this framework for extensions and what you can do with it.

Speaker: Martin Nordby Johansen, Software Engineer at Autodesk Forma
