Alex Oliver (Igloo Studios)
General
Location: Regency Ballroom

The AEC industry suffers from a relative lack of location-based technology development that is accessible to the everyday builder or architect. We all know it is commonplace in the Tech industry to have consumer focused websites displaying geo-tagged photos, location-based tweets, and GPS enabled map-mashups, all that make life easier, more efficient, or just plain fun. But the AEC Industry is dreadfully behind in promoting, adopting or creating similarly easy-to-use tools for professionals working on making resource efficient homes and communities that make a real impact on our environmental footprint.

The payoff to creating solutions in this space will be large for technology developers and even bigger for the environment. Alex will talk about some of the biggest opportunities on the horizon.
