CMU Launches New Executive Education Program: “Managing AI in Transportation”
Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy announced today the launch of a new executive education program focusing on the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in the transportation industry.
The new program, “Managing AI in Transportation,” was developed by the experts at Heinz College’s Traffic21 Institute and will explore critical areas that are required for breaking down public and private organizational barriers and understanding how managing AI can benefit key stakeholders throughout the transportation industry.
“We’re excited to offer this new program to our already strong roster of executive education,” said David Ulicne, Senior Director of Heinz College Executive Education. “As the transportation industry continues to rapidly evolve, and the influence of AI in the field continues to grow, this new program will provide managers the opportunity to expand their knowledge and keep pace with the latest technological advancements.”
Managing AI in Transportation will debut as a five-day virtual bootcamp in May 2021.
Participants will explore the impact of disruptive technology on transportation; AI in traffic control devices; AI in connected and autonomous vehicles; the role of AI in predictive analytics; AI in transportation asset management; the equitable application of AI for safe and efficient transportation; and how to develop and implement an enterprise AI strategy.
“Since Traffic21’s founding more than 10 years ago, we have seen firsthand the various ways AI is impacting and improving transportation,” said Stan Caldwell, Executive Director of Traffic21. “From asset management to automated vehicles, the use of AI is transforming transportation sector, and we are pleased to have the opportunity to share what we have learned with both public and private sector executives to leverage the power of this technology and mitigate its risk.”
