We've partnered with Code Like a Girl

We’re thrilled to partner with Code Like a Girl to hire a new engineer and two interns.

Diversity is important in creating high quality and representative AI. It just works better.

Coming to us through CLG, Katherine Dixey (our new engineer), Eleanore Kecskes-Judd and Wei Wang offer perspectives and skills from different backgrounds that will bring new eyes to the big problems we’re trying to solve.
Here’s an insight into our two interns:

Currently studying a Bachelor of Design at Deakin University, Eleanore is one of our UI/UX designers helping to refine solutions for clients so they can gain a better outcome for their problems.

Code Like a Girl has helped her get her foot in the door (specifically ours!) in the industry that she wanted to work in. So far Eleanore has quickly learnt that being a UX/UI engineer is not all about the wireframes and designs.

There is so much more that goes into a client project, which will keep her in good stead for her future career aspirations to build innovative tech and mobile solutions for her own clients.

In a unique skill set for a future designer, Eleanore is also a talented dancer, and will certainly keep our team light on their feet.

Having written her own algorithm on Natural Language Processing for word search, Wei Wang is a perfect fit for our Red Marble tech team.

With limited entry level options in her preferred field of data science and machine learning obtained at University of Melbourne, Code Like a Girl provided Wei a golden opportunity to connect with potential jobs. With a goal of becoming a future tech lead, Wei’s focused on becoming as technical as possible, and has already begun learning more on industrial coding style and the way to improve her code quality from our tech lead Andrew Ong.

What we didn’t realise when we hired Wei was that we’d also be getting a package deal with her adorable chinchilla cat Kuku who likes to sit in on every meeting.

Welcome aboard!

The AI Revolution is here - Red Marble AI whitepaper

Construction in 2025: The AI Revolution is here

The AI revolution is here and the race is on to become the dominant force of construction in the future.

Today while the construction industry is awash with funding and fuelled by government spending, ultra-tight margins, difficulties retaining staff and cost overruns make it increasingly hard to be profitable.

Our whitepaper looks to the future, not the big blue sky wholesale change 50 years from now, but moreso how the first steps to solve these problems and revolutionise the industry are already underway.

In fact, many of the fundamental tools that will begin this wholesale change are here. In other sectors, data and AI have changed how industries operate and established a blueprint for industry takeover.

It is now up to the industry to take up the baton and run with it.

In our interviews with industry leaders, we are seeing pockets of excellence are already emerging. AI is being used effectively to drive improvements in several business areas. Data-centric technologies such as drones, Building Information Management (BIM), Internet of Things (IoT), and digital twins are supporting that.

Our Construction in 2025 whitepaper provides insights and the beginnings of a blueprint for change. Our 7 Steps to introducing AI are a guide to how construction industry leaders can get started.

We outline:

  • ​​Turbulent times: Construction’s big AI opportunity
  • Getting race ready: Transformation lessons from industry titans
  • Pockets of success: the sparks of an AI revolution
  • A Blueprint for the industry: AI predictions for 2025
  • 7 Steps to Introducing an AI experiment

One thing is clear: the prize for the firms who get this right is huge. Increased margin and profits, improved staff retention and emergence as a dominant player. And that’s just the beginning of what’s possible.

The race is on! Enjoy our analysis, and let us know if you've implemented any of these technologies in the past 12 months.
