Join the ASME UK Section, Al-Kindi Society of Engineers, Iraqi Engineers Union and other partners on Saturday 29 October 2022 for an award ceremony to honour distinguished professor Dhiya Al-Jumeily OBE, who will give a talk to our members and guests entitled “Artificial Intelligence for accomplishing the UN Sustainable Development Goals”. In response to the UN sustainable development goals, the emergence of the field of called Deep Learning (part of Artificial Intelligence) has resulted, paralleled by the rise in prominence of the Intelligent Systems paradigm. Additionally, the term 'Big Data' has been introduced in recognition of the extended use and scale of data, which is now featured prominently as a critical component in many solutions. The Artificial Intelligence and more specifically Data Science discipline, along with related concepts, aims to address many problems including: the problem of information processing, providing a capacity for problem analysis that may exceed immediate human cognitive capabilities, while offloading routine tasks to reduce human cognitive labour and its associated limitations. Data can be viewed as the information carrying substrate within this paradigm, a medium upon which the problem domain information is encoded. The application of Artificial Intelligence techniques and big data solutions, enabled by data science approaches and intelligent system technologies, has already delivered transformative impacts in different aspects around us, including sustainable development. In this talk we explore the possibility of using Artificial Intelligence, deep learning and their applications, to accelerate and achieve the 17th Sustainable Development goals of the UN, covering the potential of such approaches, highlighting challenges with applying AI in real-applications, and exploring possible future directions. The talk will be support by ‘real-world’ examples on which the discussion will be based. This will be concluded by proposing a novel case study to tackling water shortage and its implications based on AI combined with sensing technologies. The event will be a hybrid event with opportunity to attend physical and virtually via Zoom. A light late lunch / early dinner will be served.
