SEI SNJ Chapter: "Addressing Artificial Intelligence and Robotics for Inspection of Structures" (1 PDH)

Thursday, October 3, 2019 - 6:00pm

Advances in artificial intelligence and robotics are revolutionizing countless industries, including civil engineering and construction. Autonomous systems should be viewed as potential team members and partners that augment our capabilities, rather than as a threat to our job security.

In this talk, the learned speaker will introduce three emergent machine partnerships in civil engineering:

• Human-robot inspection teams

• AI-guided visualization

• Machine-informed design

Dr. Lattanzi will provide an introduction to each concept, as well as examples of professional applications from his research.

As 21st century engineers, we need to develop AI systems that foster trust, while also expanding our own skill sets to include modern data science and computing. He is the co-director of the Center for Advancing Human Machine Partnership, where he studies how robotics and artificial intelligence technologies can be developed to improve civil infrastructure design and evaluation processes. His current research initiatives include the use of remote sensing for life-cycle structural assessments and the integration of artificial intelligence into robotic inspection systems.
