Often, advanced sensor technologies can assess highway bridge infrastructure. TRB will host a webinar on Monday, February 22, 2021 from 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern to explore how artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning (DL) may be used to predict the deterioration of bridges. Presenters will discuss recent case studies related to the application of AI in integrating highway data to better explain and predict system performance. They will also identify how AI and DL may improve sensor signal data, and explain how these technologies can provide support design, operations, and management of highway systems.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Testing and Evaluation of Transportation Structures.

Some registrants will need to pay $95 to attend this webinar. Sign into to view registration information.
