I am a Training, Technical Support and BIM Specialist who graduated from the University of Liverpool with a Master's degree in Building Information Modelling from the University of Liverpool. In two years in the UK, I contributed to two enterprises to help them implement BIM into their business model. In addition to my case-specific research within the enterprises, I spent my days learning the essentials of AI algorithms and learning coding in several languages including Python, C#. Finally, I have trained an AI model which takes the dimension of “Mass” elements in a Revit model and succeeded in implementing it into a plug-in by using several methods. Currently, I am seeking opportunities in enthusiastic teams who would like to be focusing opportunities in implementing AI into BIM.
What to expect during the event
AI models need huge sample libraries to be well trained. It is, for sure, impossibly difficult to build thousands of buildings to be used a sample library. Thankfully, many uses for AI models can be designed by using only digital assets. In this manner, it can be often enough to provide a photography an object and retrieve the RGB values especially when the use of AI regards computer vision. On the other hand, buildings are complex systems which contains much more than what is visible through a camera lens. One of the most popular way to differentiate between BIM and traditional CAD applications is to refer BIM's being data-rich. Almost every element in a model is a source of data which can take global parameters as input and provide an output. This makes an efficient context to present a building with all the complexity resides within buildings. Digital assets that are built in this environment are suitable to train AI models with all the complexity of buildings. The content of the presentation relies on a method to implement a Tensorflow model into Revit with a sample of Revit plug-in which takes the dimensions of mass objects and predicts the category which they meant belong to.
