"In a time when the value of architects and their services is being questioned, practitioners need to move from theoretical discussions about the future to incorporating data and automation into their everyday workflow." - Kathleen M. O'Donnell

With that statement in mind, let's look at some recent findings from AIA National. This AIA National survey highlights AI's significance as a future tool for client service. Although only 5 percent of firms currently use AI models, nearly 70 percent are exploring AI integration into their future business models. AIA conducted these surveys as part of their monthly work-on-the-boards survey.

Architects are still in the learning phase regarding AI's possibilities, which could eventually become a cost-effective asset for firms. Firms are primarily interested in using AI for marketing, design options, and zoning and code compliance management. Furthermore, 90 percent of firms plan to either start using AI or increase its usage over the next three years.
