Nemetschek Group announces new AI Innovation Hub


The AI Innovation hub aims to bundle the existing AI activities in the Nemetschek Group and accelerate the adoption of Artificial Intelligence in the AEC/O (Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Operations) and media industries

The main focus of the newly created AI Innovation Hub is driving AI initiatives across the brand portfolio with partners, alliances, and customers.

The Nemetschek Group aims to accelerate product development as well as the testing and exploring of deploying AI tools such as AI Visualizer (a new feature in Archicad, Allplan and Vectorworks), 3D Drawings (part of Bluebeam Cloud) and the dTwin platform to help users increase productivity and sustainability in their processes.

Establishing ethical and trustworthy AI

The goal is to launch ethical and trustworthy AI as a service (AIaaS) for customers and partners. This approach goes way back to the principles established by founder Professor Georg Nemetschek and encompasses all Nemetschek brands.

“Our mission has always been to lead the way in innovation, especially in AEC/O and media & entertainment industries, and this AI Innovation Hub will take us a step further”, says Marc Nézet, chief strategy officer and chief division officer operate & manage.

“I am very happy that we have two renowned experts join the team. Together we strive for an ethical AI, protecting creativity and intellectual property rights, and designing and building sustainably and responsibly.”

The new AI Innovation Hub will be led by two new acquisitions from Google

“I’m truly excited to embark on this journey together with the Nemetschek team. The company is not only committed to driving innovation and sustainability in the AEC/O industry but also prioritizes ethics and the responsible integration of AI. The establishment of the AI Innovation Hub reflects our dedication to customer needs and requirements”, says Charles Sheridan, new chief AI and data officer at Nemetschek Group.

Charles will lead the global AI Innovation Hub, driving the seamless integration of AI technologies across the company’s diverse portfolio of software as well as deploying the internal adoption of AI.

Before joining Nemetschek, he held 25 years worth of key roles at large tech companies including Google, Intel and Huawei, where he spearheaded the development of next-generation cloud, AI, data, and IoT solutions.

Having significant experience within the EU commissions and university communities, he bridges the gap between industry and academia, while also advocating for collaboration and open collaborative research ecosystems.
