APSIPA U.S. Local Chapter will organize a panel discussion on “Emerging AI Technologies for Smart Infrastructure” at 7-8pm PDT,  April 23

Rapid urbanization presents new challenges to existing physical and digital infrastructure. New infrastructure development is needed in response to rapid population growth and intense economic activities. The emerging research on smart cities offers part of the solution to the challenges, and facilitates the collection of environmental data through the Internet of Things (IoT). Billions of sensors and devices are deployed to collect, process and transmit data and receive feedback after analysis. However, transmitting an enormous amount of data, perceiving complex environment, and making smart decisions in a timely manner is a very demanding task. Recent advances in AI technologies can significantly contribute and provide cost-effective solutions to the smart infrastructure of modern metropolitans.
Since smart infrastructure is a system that can monitor, communicate, analyze and act based on data collected by sensors, challenges exist in many aspects. At present, intelligent sensors are still a dynamic, open and evolving concept. Though the new generation communication technique is developing leaps and bounds, more efficient approaches are in need to make the paradigm faster, greener, and safer. Besides, breakthroughs in various analytic solutions powered by AI are expected to inject vitality into innovations and applications in smart infrastructure.
