2022 NSW End-of-Year celebration

2022 NSW End-of-Year celebration

with NSW determinative committee 
Thursday 8 December 2022 | 5.30pm – 7.30pm AEDT | Piper Alderman, Sydney

You are invited to come and celebrate the end of the year with colleagues and friends, old and new. We hope you will take this opportunity to reflect on the achievements made during 2022 and hear plans for 2023. 

Here is what the event will cover

The ongoing development and introduction of AI models is increasing here in Australia although we are a long way behind a lot of other countries. The objective of this presentation is to provide a clear understanding of what AI really is and what the benefits are to start utilising the right model.  This presentation will provide a level of detail as to how the AI model will assist the Contract parties and the legal firms. 

Disputes in the construction/infrastructure industry are currently running at 70% on projects, with cost overruns averaging 25%, subject to the value of the project. On government projects this is tax-payers money.

There needs to be a better way to foresee risks on projects before they encounter them using the right technologies that integrate and collaborate in a way to identify and assist in mitigating the risks rather than responding to them once they are an issue.

A majority of the risks arise as a result of the lack of understanding and management of contract - Interpretation vs. Expectation.

The ongoing development of the integrated technology, in particular an AI model, which becomes a decision maker, will allow the client and contractors to better establish clear strategic objectives and outlooks for the projects they are undertaking and provide a better way to eliminate the risks at the right time.
