Short Description of the Keynote Speech

Even before building, digitization does not stop. It is important to know what - and in principle - you can and can not do. This requires an understanding of people and computers, their similarities and differences, and advances in computers that function like (human) brains. Some building processes are already partially digitized (planning), others (the actual work on site) will be partially digitized. The impact of digitization on our society will depend on whether we can reasonably balance desired positive effects and unwanted and unintended negative effects. Hype alone is never enough in the long run.
