Artificial Intelligence in the Automotive Industry

Online Seminar 13th & 14th September 2022

14:00 GMT Summer Time;  15:00 Europe Summer Time;
09:00 Eastern Daylight Time; 06:00 Pacific Daylight Time;

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and especially different aspects of Machine Learning (ML) are having an impact in many aspects of the Automotive Industry. The aim of this online seminar is to examine some of the uses of this technology and to try and help provide insight into how it can effectively be deployed.

Headline uses include the design process, inspection, testing and automated vehicle control. Although this seminar will focus on the Automotive environment and applications, many of the lessons will be transferrable to other industries. The aim of the seminar is to help delegates to appreciate:

  • Fundamental principles of ML
  • Variety of uses of AI / ML in the automotive and other industries
  • Opportunities for the use of ML especially for the complex tasks associated with Automated vehicles and driver assistance
  • A methodology for Assurance of Machine Learning Algorithms
  • How to approach the deployment of software based on ML in Automated Vehicles and the challenges from a regulatory perspective
  • Pitfalls and Good Practice in ML.
