AI for project cost risk– The reality of commercial use

There is no shortage of commentary and ‘vision’ about the way in which AI will impact projects and project managers. At present only a few companies have developed working platforms for time and/or cost management, with the majority being pre-commercial.

Endeavour Programme's platform Octant AI focusses on mitigating poor cost performance and is in commercial operational use for infrastructure projects. Early adopters are changing the way they manage their projects based on its near real time actionable predictions.

This presentation will focus on the lived experience of developing and implementing an AI platform in a customer organisation. David will cover issues that have had practical impact such as paradigm change, problem definition, data availability, response from professionals using the system and return on investment. A three minute primer video can be viewed here:

The experience gained by this commercial rollout will be valuable both to potential users of AI platforms and other AI platforms targeting cost and time management of projects.
