Cultivating Smart Construction Safety using Technologies and AI
This talk will draw on examples from the research studies to highlight the key features and benefits of using safety technologies to predict workers’ at-risk behavior, to augment workers’ interactions with their physical environment, to localize hazards in dynamic job sites, and ultimately to keep workers safe. The significant contributions of these studies will be discussed in terms of their translational impacts on how the construction industry should approach and maintain controls after providing required safety interventions.
Join us to meet the speakers: Dr. Sogand Hasanzadeh, Assistant Professor @ Purdue University, and Dr. Behzad Esmaeili, Assistant Professor @ George Mason University
Sogand Hasanzadeh, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor at the Lyles School of Civil Engineering at Purdue University. She received Ph.D. from Virginia Tech in Civil Engineering, two M.Sc. in Construction Engineering and Management from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Shahid Beheshti University, Iran. Her research focuses on advancing smart construction safety through the application of cyber-physical-human systems, wearable sensors, VR/AR/MR, and data analytics. Her interdisciplinary work is looking for creating a shared language between civil engineering, data science, computer science, human factor, and cognitive/behavioral psychology that leads to more informed engineering solutions in response to the current and future challenges in complex construction projects.
