Seminar: The Intersection of Cloud Computing and Civil Infrastructure

April 25 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Over the coming years, bridges and other physical infrastructure will experience unprecedented demands due to climate driven changes and trends in freight. These increasing demands are set against a backdrop of infrastructure deterioration as many assets reach the end of their intended life. This presentation will examine not only these trends but also technology that can be leveraged by the engineering community to better analyze, understand, and overcome these challenges.

The objective of this presentation is to familiarize the engineering community with technology tools that have become well established in adjacent industries and are poised to play a large role in the field of civil infrastructure. These include cloud computing, programming languages, data visualization and machine learning. These tools are examined in the context of two upcoming challenges for our industry: climate threats and increasingly heavy freight. Ultimately, the engineers who know these problems inside and out should have the tools and skill sets to know the data inside and out.

Presented by HNTB’s Erik Zuker, PE, and Rob Wildish, EIT. Co-hosted by Rutgers and the RIME Bridge Resource Program
