Our Geobusiness Future: Big Data, Machine Learning, and AI
Human society is poised to be shaped by new technology in many ways in the future, and the same is true for the field of engineering. Big data, machine learning, and AI all have nearly limitless untapped potential to change the way we live and work, and the emergence of these concepts is being hailed as the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Our very own Brad Melocik recently co-authored an article for Geostrata magazine on just this topic, titled “Our Geobusiness Future: Big Data, Machine Learning, and AI.” It was born from his experiences as a member of the Geoprofessional Business Association (GBA) and their Crystal Ball Workshop, which aimed to tackle important questions related to the Fourth Industrial Revolution, including:
- Have you ever stared out the window wondering how your company will operate in the future?
- What will your clients want?
- What will your team need?
If you find yourself wondering about the answers to those questions, you’re not alone! Check out the article below to see how the GBA is addressing these big unknowns.
