The Sustainable Future of the Built Environment

Date: 20 July 2021

Time: 17:00 BST

Location: Online

Our second construction-focused Masters of AI event continued the conversation around sustainability in the sector.

While the industry has proved resilient throughout the pandemic, it has been hugely disrupted, with the importance of achieving carbon zero targets perhaps seen as less of a priority for many businesses.

As we emerge from a turbulent 18 months, however, sustainability is now firmly back at the top of the agenda. Peak took the chance to emphasize our commitment to driving positive change and showcasing how leading merchants, manufacturers and contractors are using artificial intelligence (AI) to drive transformation, reduce carbon emissions and also achieve revenue growth.

This event is a unique opportunity to learn how AI is making a difference, and how the companies already implementing the technology are driving growth and success. Run by AI experts and aimed at business professionals (rather than tech experts or data scientists), Masters of AI takes a straightforward, non-complex approach to AI for business. One of the aims of the event is to build a collaborative community of forward-thinking, innovative business leaders who understand that putting data at the heart of their business strategy will set them up for long term success.
