Event TypeFocus Session
TimeTuesday, June 26th11am - 12:30pm
DescriptionIn this session we will address the challenges of large cities and complex urban environments from several points of view and review how HPC and AI can help to increase energy efficiency, ease mobility and convenience of living and at the same time reduce the environmental impact.
Mary Ann will kick off the session by focusing on urban systems in general that attract more and more people and consequently consume more than 70% of energy and GHG (Greenhouse Gas Emissions) in most countries. She will also present results from a related joint Exascale program that involves several US National Laboratories.
The first talk will be complemented by Martin Hauschild who will focus on the challenges car manufacturers are facing given new environmental rulings and limits but also at the balance of general transport systems vs. individual mobility. In this context the potential of IoT and the promise of autonomous vehicles and autonomous operation of transport systems will be addressed.
Laurence Liew will provide a different aspect in this session with a specific focus on the complex urban infrastructure of Singapore and how its Government is accelerating AI adoption with dedicated initiatives in AI Research, AI Technology and AI Industry.
We will conclude the session with a short 15 minute panel discussion where the audience can challenge the speakers with questions and encourage a lively discussion between the speakers and the attendees.
