AI Requires Tailored DRAM Solutions

whitePaper | April 6, 2020

For over 30 years, DRAM has continuously adapted to the needs of each new wave of hardware spanning PCs, game consoles, mobile phones and cloud servers. AI/ML may be the biggest challenge yet. Artificial intelligence is the study and application of providing hardware and software that attempt to emulate human intelligence. Therefore, as human beings adapt to different tasks, AI must adapt. Indeed, if AI is to scale to the diversity of human tasks, it will not be via a single, monolithic solution. For every task a human can perform, AI must adapt through a unique combination of hardware and software components.

Digital Twin Cities: Framework and Global Practices

whitePaper | April 20, 2022

The continued growth and success of cities is one of the great triumphs of modern civilization. Cities are home to the majority of the world’s population and generate more than 80% of GDP. Rapid urbanization has also brought about new challenges as cities have struggled with congestion, pollution, increased carbon emissions, inequity and exposure to natural disasters such as floods and storms. The COVID-19 pandemic and climate change have further intensified these issues. The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development sets out the goal of “building inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable cities and communities”. Whereas these goals may be universally accepted, the path to get there is not as clear. Innovation and empowerment of digital technology are critical to transforming our cities. Policy support and institutional change are also essential.

An Update on Insolvency in the Australian Construction Industry

whitePaper | August 19, 2022

The construction sector in Australia has long been affected by insolvency and broader liquidity issues. In the last year, construction companies accounted for 26% of businesses that entered into insolvency, and insolvencies in the construction sector more than doubled. This year, contractors have been further squeezed by inflation, supply chain issues and labour market shortages. As the federal government has wound back its COVID-19 economic stimulus packages, further collapses seem inevitable.

Introduction to the Construction Readiness Assessment

whitePaper | February 9, 2021

Construction projects have always faced pressure to begin early mobilization of the construction phase which can result in out-of-sequence work leading to cost and schedule overruns. The decision to proceed with construction requires a standard, objective process that easily identifies the gaps that must be addressed to achieve construction readiness and supports the decision of when to move forward. CII's Construction Readiness Assessment is a game-changer to guide project teams in achieving construction readiness with confidence. Their research shows that construction-ready projects outperform projects that are not ready with 20% better cost performance and 22% better schedule performance2.
