A job which involves an element of computing is a career in Construction. The construction industry is a sector which relies on creative thinking and various digital softwares for design purposes. With computational thinking involved through the process of problem solving to reach a goal, of safely and efficiently building a structure to meet the customer’s needs. I am interested in the future potential within this industry, with the opportunity for automated design, virtual reality and the gradually reduced demand for human labour with the rise of robotics. I question the ability for robots to possess the ability for creative thinking to the extent of humans, and wonder how digital technologies may revolutionise this field.
I also question how open construction workers will be to the prospect of their work shifting from the physical to the digital world.
