Speaking on New construction engineer in AU Vegas, Anagnost said that advancement in machine learning along with generative design will ensure that everything built in the future is immediately and actively monitored to ensure greater security.
He said technology could predict and prevent disasters such as Grenfell's fire that killed 72 in June 2017.
"Early, but machine learning will absolutely improve the building and fire protection," said Anagnost. "We can already simulate the impact of natural disasters quite well on cities. Our biggest problem is not knowing what to build, but to make sure that the way people think it should be."
"Most of the problems with insecure construction are not that people did not know what to build, that's where the wrong thing was built. Insufficient material was used or not built to the exact specification, and you are often buildings that are not as safe as people expect.
He added, "Look at the terrible high fire in London that essentially tracks the materials used, not the ones that should be used, and nobody knew, mostly built a large candle that resulted in a terrible fire.
"All this could be avoided by machine learning algorithms that perform automated checks that material X is installed, material Y is needed and then flagged it as an inadequate building. But nobody knew or knew they were lost somewhere on the road.
"Machine learning will absolutely be able to identify such problems so that what is gained is actually possible to survive in situations that might be faced."
The government has promised to introduce a covered banning of fuel after the Grenfell disaster, after expert reports have shown that the flush directly leads to a fire spreading in the building. A group of expert reports concluded that the blanket at Grenfell Tower had never been tested, was not in compliance with the fire regulations and was not properly installed.
Earlier this week New construction engineer reported on the impact of such a ban on the development of wooden frames, where a member of the Timber Research & Development Association and Marketing Manager Rupert Scott said the ban on bans was "unjustified."
