The second edition of ExperimentAI, a citizen science project by the Computer Vision Centre (CVC) to experiment with artificial intelligence in public libraries, includes eight dissemination workshops aimed at the public in general which take place from May to September.
The last session, focusing on autonomous vehicles, is entitled “Digital Twins per la conducció del futur” and will allow attendants to discover the artificial intelligence behind self-driving vehicles, as well as the importance of the use of Digital Twins in the research conducted on autonomous driving. During the session, attendants will be able to experience driving using virtual reality and contribute to learning and development. They will also be able to discover the TDA project for autonomous driving on mountain roads. The issues to be touched upon on this session will be mobility and smart cities and women creating AI. To attend the session please sign up here.
The project is launched by the CVC with the support of the Spanish Science and Technology Foundation (FECYT) and the Spanish government. It also includes the collaboration of the Barcelona Libraries Consortium and the Municipal Libraries Network of the Barcelona Provincial Council.
