Industry chatbot applications have been the buzz of the town in terms of technology. Customers and businesses have both joined the change during the last few years. Chatbots for customers mean quicker responses, better customer service, simpler sales processes, and a more intimate relationship with the businesses they do business with. Businesses that use chatbots benefit from cheaper support costs, higher conversion rates, increased customer loyalty, accelerated sales cycles, and increased lead generation.

The construction industry can also benefit from AI chatbot technology by streamlining various processes involved with development and increasing the efficiency of all stakeholders involved. In this article, we will take a look at how AI chatbots can be used in the construction industry and the data annotation required to create them. 

How Can the Construction Industry Utilize Chatbots?

AI-powered chatbots can be used to automate a number of operations in the construction sector, including answering frequently asked questions, setting up appointments or tasks, and giving real-time updates on project status. The design process might also be aided by AI chatbots, which would provide thorough specifications and plans based on high-level input from architects and engineers. Overall, by enabling task automation and delivering precise and complete information, chatbots have the potential to significantly increase productivity and accuracy in the construction industry.

We are already seeing the application of chatbots in the construction industry, which are creating large language models to generate human-like languages, including linguistic understanding and generation. For instance, if a user types in “What is the method of calculating the amount of pipe welding,” they can find detailed responses, well-organized papers, and expert guidance.

Improving Construction Project Management With AI Chatbots

Chatbots might provide a small construction company an advantage over the competition because they are reasonably simple to build. Here are two ways that chatbots can boost staff productivity at your small business and quickly automate activities linked to construction: 

  • Boost team productivity with better collaboration – Chatbots can automate repetitive operations that take up employees’ time and take their attention away from more important work. For instance, a chatbot can plan meetings for project participants automatically. The bot is capable of matching team calendars and locating a time that works for everyone’s schedules.
  • Ensure employee compliance with safety regulations – During employee safety training, chatbots that can automate information search come in handy. A regulatory chatbot’s primary competency is to quickly scan a variety of legal papers and provide pertinent responses to employee inquiries. 

What Types of Data Annotation are Needed to Create These AI Chatbots?

AI chatbots rely on natural language processing (NLP), which allows the system to understand and respond to human speech. However, high-quality data annotation is needed to make sure that the ML algorithms correctly understand the sentence structure, intent, and other nuances in human speech. This includes techniques like named entity recognition, which extracts information from the text. It involves detecting and categorizing important information in text known as named entities.

Once all the entities have been labeled, they will need to be linked together, which is another data annotation method called entity linking. This includes first analyzing and annotating entities within a text (named entity recognition), engaging in entity disambiguation, and linking named entities to knowledge databases about them. Both the user experience and search functionality are enhanced by entity linking. Linking labeled entities in a text to a URL that offers extra details about the entity is the responsibility of annotators.

Finally, text classification will be needed, which is where annotators are required to examine the content and identify its subject, intent, and sentiment before categorizing it according to a specified list of categories. Text classification is the act of marking a whole body or line of text with a single label, as opposed to entity annotation, which labels specific words or phrases.
