- June 12: Artificial Intelligence and augmented reality solutions for greater performance
Artificial Intelligence and On Time PerformanceArtificial intelligence is often mentioned as the future of mass transportation, promising to solve many of the problems plaguing fixed route services. This is happening at the same time that the entire technology stack underpinning mass transit is changing - into modern, cloud-based systems that deliver the promise of advanced algorithms to provide for better service at lower costs. The talk will outline the areas in which artificial intelligence can be valuable in mass transit, map the likelihood and timeline for such changes and discuss the new ways in which planning and operating mass transport systems will change as a result. The talk will take improving on-time performance as a case in point of how artificial intelligence is used to improve scheduling for on-time performance.
- June 10: Public transportation moves forward with AI and Internet of Things
What can and can’t artificial intelligence do for public transport? Separating myth from realityArtificial intelligence is everywhere and it holds the promise of dramatically improving mass transit operations, by solving the many problems plaguing fixed route services today. This is happening at a time in which the entire technology stack underpinning mass transit is evolving - into modern, cloud-native, data-driven systems that use advanced algorithms to provide better service at reduced costs. This session will highlight the areas in which artificial intelligence can be valuable in mass transit, map the likelihood and timeline for such changes and discuss the new ways in which planning and operating mass transport systems will change as a result.
