Data and artificial intelligence for transportation

CIVIL-459

Lecturer(s) :

Alahi Alexandre Massoud

Language:

English

Summary

Data science and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are poised to reshape the transportation industry with self-driving cars, delivery robots, self-moving segways, or smart terminals. In this course, students will learn the fundamentals behind these AI-driven systems.

Content

1. Introduction to AI-driven systems
2. Sensing modalities and data in transportation systems
3. Perceiving: how to extract meaningful information from raw data?
    - Intro to machine learning (fundamentals to regression and classification)
    - Intro to deep learning (Neural Network, CNN, regularization techniques)
    - State-of-the-art techniques for localisation, detection, and tracking objects in the context of self-driving cars and smart terminals.
4- Predictive models
     - Intro to Recurrent Neural Networks
    - Learning to clone socially-accepted human behavior in the context of self-moving segways
5- Acting: challenges and ethical impacts of intelligent transportation systems

 

The course is case-study based using real data. Students will implement in groups projects in computer vision, robotic controls, localization, path planning, and more. The projects involve parameter tuning and experimentation.
