The October edition of the 21CC podcast, brought to you by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), is now available.

It examines the growing influence of artificial intelligence on construction while, on the people side of things, exploring what it’s like to work and study with Stage 4 cancer.

In the episode, Construction Management’s Cristina Lago grills ex-Arup engineer Stevan Lukic about the AI chatbot he developed for construction projects. First question: Does it hallucinate?

Then our expert panel discusses where AI sits in the digitalisation of construction. Hear from: David Philp FCIOB, chief value officer at Cohesive Group and chair of CIOB’s innovation panel; Murillo Piazzi, digital consultant at the BIM Academy; and May Winfield, Buro Happold’s global director of commercial, legal and digital risks.

And, with October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, CIOB People editor Nadine Buddoo caught up with building control surveyor Jeannie Ambrose, who kept working and studying after being diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer.

Finally, “optioneering” is the subject of this month’s jargon buster.
