AI IN CONSTRUCTION: SOPREMA JOINS THE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AUGMENTED RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT (AIARD) CHAIR

AI IN CONSTRUCTION: SOPREMA JOINS THE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AUGMENTED RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT (AIARD) CHAIR
23/04/2021

SOPREMA is, and always has been, building for the future and investing in R&D. These efforts have resulted in innovative and sustainable building solutions that facilitate, for instance, circular construction projects and the installation of green roofs, and the fact that we offer over two hundred waterproofing systems that achieve BROOF(t4). Yet sustainability or building performance are not the only issues at stake in today’s construction industry. Research, expertise and the transfer of knowledge need to cross traditional boundaries in a world that is becoming increasingly connected.

It is in this spirit of continuous improvement and innovation that SOPREMA has decided to join the Artificial Intelligence Augmented Research and Development Chair. Founded in November 2020, the AIARD wants to reconsider R&D in the light of artificial intelligence. Rémi Perrin, SOPREMA’s Director of Research and Development, underlines SOPREMA’s commitment: “We want to design 21st century building materials with the tools of the 21st century.”

R&D IN THE AGE OF AI To maintain a competitive edge in an age of robots and big data, companies need new, smart tools to rethink research and development. More specifically, they need to be able to put artificial intelligence to good use in their R&D departments. That is why the INSA Strasbourg (the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées – a renowned French engineering school) founded the AIARD, together with Faurecia, ArcelorMittal, Punch Powerglide, Socomec and Sartorius.

SOPREMA is very proud to be the sixth partner to join this program and raise awareness on new practices, and to challenge and inspire today’s manufacturers to embrace the latest generation of digital technologies. Together with the other AIARD members, we will develop, produce and test new tools to take our R&D efforts to the next level.

SOPREMA’S ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT SOPREMA’s R&D Director Rémi Perrin is thrilled to be shaping the future of industrial R&D together with the Artificial Intelligence Augmented Research and Development Chair. “Curiosity and an entrepreneurial spirit have always been in our DNA”, he explains. “However, we also have to be – and remain – agile and able to handle the nearly limitless amounts of data that are at our exposal today. That is why our AIARD membership is such an important step.”

IN GOOD HANDS SOPREMA joining the AIARD is yet another example of our continued commitment to offering you the best solutions and services available, and to ensuring that all the requirements for your construction project are met – now and in the future. Don’t hesitate to contact our experts with any questions you may have.
