(In registering for a SYDBIM event attendees agree to receiving emails from our sponsors)

Increasingly we see the sophistication of digital process play out in the built environment, and in infrastructure projects. The success behind these projects are attributed to the innovative ideas and approach of the people and organisations behind them.

At our June 11 event SydBIM, we present experts who champion a data centric, and computational approach to projects to drive more insightful design outcomes, more efficient project delivery, and ultimately a better result.

Auto Layout: A Large Goal with Small Beginnings
– Shawnee Finlayson (BVN)

The BVN Sydney studio has individually movable desks. The ultimate goal is to be able to do full layouts automatically, but there are a number of sub-tasks that present significant obstacles! This talk will outline what these tasks are, how they relate to each other and how we’ve solved some of them so far. Our current state is around collecting information about the status quo. The present is surprisingly hard to understand!  We’ll outline how we rebuilt the studio model using a lidar scan, how we’re tracking desks using QR codes, computer vision, beacons and harry potter, how we pass data around using raw JSON for everything, and where all this leads into reinforcement learning and GANNs.
