6:45PM - 7:30PM - Transforming construction and engineering with technology and data insights
The session explores the Oracle Construction and Engineering Innovation Lab and how it is helping construction and engineering organizations plan and execute digital transformation roadmaps.
The lab, which launched last year, brings to life the connected worksite, empowering visitors to experience the potential of wearable and sensor technology, drones, autonomous vehicles, and visualization technology in a hands-on, simulated job site environment.
Learn how the Innovation Lab came about, what it aims to achieve, and how it’s evolving. In addition, hear one company’s experiences with the lab and how it enabled the development of solutions before implementing and scaling them on construction sites.

8:15PM - 9:00PM - Using IoT and AI to enhance safety and security applications in smart cities
IoT and AI are buzzwords that are frequently used without mu (CEGBU)ch real understanding of their application. These technologies can be used to harness the wealth of data that is already available to improve safety and security of our cities.
The safest route during an incident can be displayed on multi-purpose LED screens throughout a campus.
Real-time location systems using IoT technology can be embedded in lights to track people and assets inside buildings for better analytics and decision making.

8:00PM - 8:45PM - Resource optimization techniques for repetitive construction projects
Methodology of integrating both CPM/LOB methods in a PDM network context simple to apply using available commercial CPM computer programs used in complex projects.
This method will overcome the CPM inability to maintain work continuity for the working crews of repetitive activities, introduces float into LOB, and revives LOB by creating access to it by commercially available and popular CPM software programs.
The implementation of this simple method can eliminate a great portion of waste and contribute in planning optimum resource usage in complex projects that involve high degree of repetition, such as construction of high-rise buildings, roads, pipelines and any other construction projects where repetitive activities are abundant.
