Chishiki-AI Research Summit

Research Summit

April 4th and 5th, 2024.

We are organizing a Research Summit on Crosscutting Research Needs for AI in Civil Engineering as a part of our NSF Strengthening Cyber Infrastructure Professional Ecosystem (SCIPE) Chishiki AI in Civil Engineering Program. The primary goal of the workshop is to identify common research gaps across AI algorithm developments, cyberinfrastructure needs, and civil engineering that may benefit from interdisciplinary research efforts. This research summit focuses on five theme areas: AI and Cyber Infrastructure in Construction Automation, Smart Cities, Sensing, Energy, and Natural Disasters. The workshop outputs will be disseminated as a white paper highlighting grand research challenges and pathways to AI in civil engineering.


The two-day workshop will be held April 4-5, 2024, in person at the Texas Advanced Computing Center - TACC, UT Austin, TX.
