How far away do you think are we to have AI implemented in our Project Management Platforms?
Network:24


We have heard from the 2019 PMI Conference that the Artificial Intelligence will be part of Project Manager's everyday life very soon. But how soon?

I want to know more about what AI features do you want to see first. Please provide your recommendations and feedbacks!

Thank you

All of the technic, whatever AI or others, will be an assistant for our work.
I wanna get an AI assistant for building WBS.

That would be amazing to have the PM assistant to manage the work, including the WBS, and then to have the project manager to review and approve. This will save tons of time to the project manager!

Absolutely, I also see that one day (very soon), the AI will be able to eliminate the repetative tasks so that the project managers can focus on things that matter and to ensure a smooth project delivery.

We are close but being close is subjective as it depends on the industry. For example, in healthcare, we are in very advanced stages but in Construction it is still the base minimum at the moment.

Thanks for sharing some insights Rami! I think the AI capabilities will be able in different ways for different industries of different maturity.

For instance, in the Medical Healthcare industry where the data is abundant in its documentation for the past decades, the AI will be able to dig in with deep learning, so it provides more accurate diagnostics to the patients.

Then, for the Construction industry, since the project team is super scattered due to the extensive use of the contractors and sub-constrictors, I see that AI can improve the communication and the coordination of the tasks to be executed.

As a IT architect, I know the truth that AI CANNOT do logical process.
It's so sad.

The short-term value of AI is likely to be in enabling historically-based guidance to support a decision and automating as much of the rote administrative role of the PM as possible.

Hi Kiron, in order for AI to provide guidance and to support a decision, it takes a TON of data. I think one of the pre-req for companies to adopt AI to their PMO is that they must have a project management software and that they have been using for a very long time ...

Community, what do you think?

The funny thing is, companies like QSM have made a living for years by providing estimating models which sit on top of large databases. So while valid data elements are needed to support machine learning, the volume needed might not be high depending on the nature of the problem we are trying to automate.

Dear Edwardo
Interesting your question.
Thanks for sharing
Workfusion's promise is that it already uses AI in project management
In the construction with the use of BIM, we are striding

Hello Luis, thanks for your input. However, I would like to make the differentiation between RPA (robot process automation) and AI.

Workfusion is one of the players in the RPA industry but there are others that are slightly more advanced. If you google Gartner RPA Magic Quadrant and you will see the leaders of this field.

The way I differentiate between RPA and AI is that RPA is algorithmic and follow a specific workflow. It does not evolve with time. This is where AI with the ML kicks in and helps to improve the initial algorithm based on data from the its repetitive uses and from system feedbacks.

In terms of construction, BIM is a excellent visualization tool to help streamlining between the design and the build. I can see how the BIM fits into the industrial revolution 4.0 and it will use other aspect of AI such as computing vision to help improving the execution of a major construction project.
