    Cloud based construction software built on real time data End-to-end construction business solutions that truly add value. COINS Construction Cloud is a construction technology solution that offers the capabilities to enable your construction business to reduce costs, boost quality and help with crucial, time-sensitive decisions throughout the construction lifecycle.   Introduction Construction professionals are always keen to understand about procurement methods practiced in industry. Therefore analyzing requirement and characteristics of procurement system is very vital. Core objective of a procurement system is identifying responsibilities and task for of each and every participant in a signed project. Before looking at types of procurement, .

    In artificial intelligence, an expert system is a computer system that emulates the decision-making ability of a human expert. Expert systems are designed to solve complex problems by reasoning through bodies of knowledge, represented mainly as if–then rules rather than through conventional procedural code. The first expert systems were created in the s and then proliferated in the s.

    failure. As such, project managers should be knowledgeable of and consider the various industry techniques and tools in the definition and execution of project cost estimation. As defined by the Expert judgment, in conjunction with objective estimation techniques, provides valuable software applications, computerized spreadsheets. A good standard definition of knowledge-based expert systems (KBES) is the following: knowledge-based expert systems are interactive computer programs incorporating judgment, experience, rules of thumb, intuition, and other expertise to provide knowledgeable advice about a variety of tasks.

Expert System’s Cogito is the only Natural Language Understanding AI technology that provides a human-like understanding of the meaning of each word in a text. Cogito leverages the deepest text analysis, starting from linguistics (morphological, grammatical and syntactical analysis) to semantics, including word disambiguation and an embedded.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND EXPERT SYSTEMS: KNOWLEDGE-BASED SYSTEMS TEACHING SUGGESTIONS The introduction of artificial intelligence concepts can seem overwhelming to some students. This is an excellent opportunity to utilize highly-involved, hands-on teaching techniques.

Carefully review the group exercises on page 8 at the end of this chapter. Techniques such as Probability Theory, Certainty Factors, Dempster-Shaffer Theory of Evidence and Fuzzy Logic are discussed with regard to their application to risk analysis in construction. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is playing a major role in the fourth industrial revolution and we are seeing a lot of evolution in various machine learning techniques are widely used by the practicing engineer to solve a whole range of hitherto intractable problems.
