Come along to the session to learn more about the I-City Challenge
The UK has ambitious targets for achieving sustainability and reducing emissions by 57% by 2030, and in the era of big data and connectivity, smart cities that operate reliably, responsibly and intelligently will be key to achieving these targets. Meanwhile, the so-called ‘Energy Trilemma’ (providing affordable, resilient and clean energy) has been identified as a critical issue by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), and dealing with resilience and connectedness issues is among its strategic priorities.
Running in Hilary Term 2023, i-City (sponsored by MathWorks) invites post-graduate students from diverse disciplines to work in teams and find new ways to deploy AI and Machine Learning tools to solve challenges in the following three broad pillars of focus:
- Connected Mobility: How can we use AI tools to regulate traffic? Can we use aerial vehicles to monitor ground ones and guide them in real time?
- Smart Electric Vehicle Charging: Can we achieve vehicle-to-grid and/or vehicle-to-home charging? How to optimally use electric vehicles as dynamic storage devices and direct the stored power to cover grid or home needs?
- Energy Efficiency and Sustainability: How can we enhance integration of renewable energy sources? How to control buildings efficiently? How can we avoid wasting energy?
