Podcast 5: Transportation and AI – an interview with Priscilla Boyd of Siemens Mobility



Artificial Intelligence (AI) is an increasingly powerful tool at the disposal of traffic managers as they battle to keep our cities moving. In the latest development in this field podcast sponsors Siemens Mobility has harnessed AI in its brand new EventFlow software, which helps predict exactly where and when events will take place in a city, and even suggests ways to lessen their impact on traffic and public transport systems. In this podcast Siemens senior manager for data analytics Priscilla Boyd explains to TTI editor Tom Stone exactly how the system was created and how it works to highlight small and medium sized events that often go unnoticed by traffic managers in advance, and also why such a system could be indispensable in the Covid-19 world. For more on EventFlow don’t miss the September edition of TTI magazine.
