Artificial intelligence can lead to autonomous buildings that help tackle climate change and contribute to a sustainable and resilient future. These technologies go beyond automation and toward autonomy. Artificial intelligence will drive our cars and it will also do so much more: capture reality, accurately construct buildings and infrastructure, and learn from the data collected by sensors.
