Overview

Artificial intelligence is starting to transform the field of traffic safety. At the core of traffic safety engineering, we are trying to spot patterns, make predictions, and develop optimized strategies. These activities have been traditionally done with conventional mathematics: inflexible formulas with only a few input variables applied on an ad hoc basis.

At its core, AI offers a new approach to spot patterns, make predictions, and develop optimized strategies: neural networks. Neural networks are flexible, consume vast amounts of input data, and they can operate on a continuous basis, constantly learning and getting better.

This course will introduce fundamentals of AI to non-AI specialists, examine eight case studies involving the application of AI to road safety, and examine eight case studies involving the application of AI to broader traffic engineering problems. Participants will emerge with a better understanding of what is possible, and be better equipped to initiate and work on AI applications in traffic safety.
