Artificial Intelligence in Railways

A full day seminar from the IRSE on Friday 14th June 2024


The World Economic Forum named Artificial Intelligence as one of the top ten emerging technologies of 2023 and it promises to be a huge disruptor. As an industry we need to educate ourselves and be in a position to utilise and influence the technology in a positive way.

What could the real impacts be for our sector? How will Safety and Assurance issues be understood and addressed before this technology can be deployed?

Looking beyond the hype to real world examples of AI and machine learning being used in a railway setting, this seminar will hear from industry experts including academics, specialists and government advisors.

Whatever happens, it is clear that AI is a game-changer, if you work as an engineer in the railway industry you cannot afford to miss this. With excellent networking and sponsorship opportunities, this seminar also counts towards your CPD.

The agenda (subject to last minute changes)....
