WMG at the University of Warwick in the UK has unveiled its new Centre for Applied Artificial Intelligence, which has been conceived to enable industry and business to gain competitive insights through artificial intelligence (AI) by leveraging large volumes of digital information.
This new center brings together several applied areas of activity where WMG (Warwick Manufacturing Group) has an established track record of excellence, including transport, manufacturing and digital healthcare, and will support the continued expansion of existing research groups in response to UK industrial needs.
Prof. Giovanni Montana and Prof. Mehrdad Dianati will head the center in close collaboration with other academic colleagues in intelligent vehicles, the WMG Cyber Security Centre, and the Institute of Digital Healthcare.
Prof. Dianati from Intelligent Vehicles (IV) Research at WMG said, “I embrace the challenges to be overcome before fully autonomous vehicles move from concept to commercialization – this includes technical solutions, which will enable safe, efficient and secure connected autonomous vehicles. These are critical factors for ensuring consumer acceptance of autonomous vehicles.
“WMG hosts a wide range of unique IV research facilities and [is]internationally renowned for its research in this area. Currently, a portfolio of projects is underway with over 15 major automotive manufacturers, including Jaguar Land Rover and highly innovative small and medium-sized technology companies.”
Traditional tools for data storage, management and processing are no longer adequate. The challenges that lie ahead address the capturing, curating, anonymizing, searching, analyzing and visualizing massive volumes of data.
