AI and the Transportation Revolution
From self-driving cars to flying robots, maritime law to railway cleantech, transportation is rapidly evolving as big data and artificial intelligence propel us in new directions.
We are on the verge of a transportation revolution that is changing the way we move around our cities. What's often lost in the conversation about the future of transportation is: who actually benefits? As cities—and the technologies they use—learn and adapt, we need to spark a critical conversation on who really benefits, and how people can leverage these technologies to support us equally.
Explore the benefits, opportunities, ethics and potential risks as technology takes the wheel in our smart cities.
