Hi Mr Podolsky, you state that you want AI to solve our problems which occur, acording to you, because "nobody checks anything". But then, in another post you say that once AI begins to solve our problems,
you say it needs to be checked by humans so what do you want? either we get out of the way and let this theorical AI you describe do its job or just let the computer be an assistant as it currently is.
As Mr matjashka said, I think most if not all of the problems you describe dont have anything to do with software like Archicad or Revit, and the AI that would be required to solve them (an AI capable of taking desicions and setting goals independent of human input) is currently non existant nor anywhere close to exist (yes, i saw your examples). And i dont know if i want anything like it to exist.
-As far as i know, current comercial software is as good as the input it receives from the user. correct me if im wrong, but i doubt it.
-Construction is an inherently human affair. It will exist in one way or another as long as humans exist. Thus, as it is an human affair also restricted by time and budgets, it is also prone to errors. Deal with it. The goal is to minimize them as much as possible.
-Incompentence cannot always be the cause of errors. A lot of the time it has to do with people wanting to chew on more that they can take. Architects trying to design beyond their technical capabilities, Contractors trying to give the best price, clients trying to develope more than they can pay for, and so on.. So, unless an AI can tell you "hey humans, the building you are trying to built is not the optimal choice for all parties involved" and we actually LISTEN to it, no ammount of computing power will ever prevent us from attempting stupid things. And that is the beauty of construction and architecture.
-If given sufficient time and money, most errors can theorically be corrected before construction begins, but it is a situation that in most cases is not possible even in super high budget projects. The AI you mention could help with this, but...(see next point)
-As of today, Archicad cannot handle in-place external reference editing nor it has an automatic dimension tool that is truly automatic, oh yeah and sometimes things move out of position ; do you really think they or any other software are near solving the problems you describe through AI?
-Too many parties involved with their own agenda, most of which dont give a d-mn about architecture. Recently we got invited to a competition for some cheap apartment building. Just reading the BEP dizzied me. Do we really need 3 meetings a week with God knows how many people, 5 client representatives, BIM specialist, consultants and the architects, for a building that i actually can draw in 2d cad, alone, in less than a month? Again, software nor AI can solve any of this, unless i can substitute all the parties involved (except the architects of course) with intelligent AI.
-Also, how about integrating the contractor DURING the design phase instead of AFTER, so they can give their input during the design and BIM process?
-Most of us dont have the minerals to stay out of situations that we dont like. So, architects agree to laughable fees, Contractors agree to even more laughable contracts and so forth, "to keep the client happy", which almost always end in the situations you describe.
-Instead of AI, sometimes the "client" just needs a kick in the rear.

When I asked: Can ArchiCAD be ready for AI, I mean - will ArchiCAD have possibility to be connected to AI to work completely automatically without human input. Let say it's running on server, interaction with human is happening via chat and email. Currently I'm not sure technically it is possible - let say to run ArchiCAD without UI and communicate with the program using terminal (as many modern software do).
