The UTSG Electronic Mailing List

An Email based mailing list has been established by the Universities Transport Study Group (UTSG). The list provides an electronic discussion forum and information resource for researchers in the field of transport primarily, but not exclusively, in the academic community.

The list was established in October 1993, and has a steadily growing membership, including researchers in all continents of the World.

The aim of the list is to facilitate information sharing, (e.g. news of new research, conferences, seminars and workshops) and to promote links, collaborative working, joint problem-solving and mutual support. Depending on the level of usage of the list and on demand, sub-lists may be set up in the future for special interests or particular types of information.

The list is administered by the Institute for Transport Studies, University of Leeds. It is one of several hundred lists managed by the JISCmail facility funded by the Higher and Further Education Councils of the UK.

Dear Colleagues,

Expressions of interest are invited for contributions to a forthcoming Handbook on Artificial Intelligence in Transport.

Innovations in Artificial Intelligence (AI) are expected to transform the transport sector over the next decade. Enabled by the convergence of high performance computing, machine vision, connectivity, automation of real-time data collection and advances in machine learning, AI has the potential to provide solutions to persistent urban transport challenges. Using historical and real-time urban sensing data, AI can learn to recognise patterns too complex, too massive or too subtle for hand-crafted software. Self-learning AI solutions will also enable a shift towards [...]
