Koti Vadlamudi, Jacobs

Buick is currently Senior Vice President in Oracle’s Construction & Engineering business and Board Director on construction & technology companies including Propeller Aero Inc, Utecture and Grupo Protexa.

She has 25 years experience building and leading teams that digitally transform industries by automating and re-engineering customer workflow and information management. 

Trained as a research scientist, she taught at Virginia Tech Blacksburg, VA and Lincoln University NZ in decision support software integrating across GIS, databases, simulation models, operations research and AI methods to solve complex decision making.

The webinar will seek to define construction 4.0 and what it actually means to construction businesses and examine how drones, AI, VR and robotics – as well as more traditional construction tools – can be brought together, through the use of data, to provide much-needed productivity and efficiency boosts.

A third speaker will be announced soon. The webinar will be moderated by Mike Hayes, editor of Construction Europe.
