Artificial Intelligence

Colorado became the first state in the country to pass a regulatory framework for artificial intelligence (AI). On May 17, 2024, Governor Jared Polis signed Senate Bill 24-205 (Concerning consumer protections in interactions with artificial intelligence systems) into law. This landmark law is set to take effect on Feb. 1, 2026. Read five key takeaways

On July 26, Taft partner Marcus Harris and attorney O. Joseph Balthazor Jr., offered best practices for companies using generative AI for business purposes. This webinar explored how business are using generative AI now; legal issues surrounding generative AI; regulations in place for generative AI; and more.

On June 14, 2023, European Union (EU) parliament members passed the Artificial Intelligence Act (the “EU AI Act”) which, if enacted, would be one of the first laws passed by a major regulatory body to regulate artificial intelligence.  It would also potentially serve as a model for policymakers here in the United States as Congress

In our prior articles on artificial intelligence (AI) in construction, we discussed machine learningimage recognition, sensors-on-sitebuilding information modeling, and smart contracts. As we noted, significant legal issues will arise with the increasing implementation of these technologies. These issues can be grouped generally into: (1) risk allocation; (2) ownership and protection

In this article, we continue our series on artificial intelligence (AI) in construction. Here we address image recognition and sensors-on-site. This technology uses cameras and other sensors to assess vast quantities of video, pictures, and other recorded conditions from worksites. Such technology has the potential to: (1) monitor worksite conditions for safety risks and hazards;

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a broad term that generally refers to technology that uses algorithms to process data and simulate human intelligence. Examples of AI technology include machine learning, image recognition and sensors-on-site, building information modeling (BIM), and “smart contracts” stored on a blockchain-based platform. This technology can be used in the construction industry by

While the spread of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the construction sector is expected to be modest in the immediate future, a shift is coming. Stakeholders can no longer afford to see AI as pertinent only to other industries – engineering and construction will need to catch up with AI applications. This is the only way
