Powered by AI: Future of Public Transportation

Presenter:  Alex Wallar, Co-Founder and CTO, The Routing Company
Date:  Thursday, December 9, 2021, 11:00 am EST
This webinar is being jointly sponsored with the IEEE Digital Reality Technical Community

Abstract: What if buses didn’t have predefined routes? It’s an easy enough question to describe and, even without being steeped in the world of optimization, logistics, or even transportation, one can come up with many different visions a bus system without bus lines may function. That is the beauty and the curse of the question...

To actively optimize decisions of which bus goes where, when, and what services are available, an on-demand system is simultaneously vital and extremely difficult.  Yet decisions made by such a system can be scrutinized by anybody who has ridden a bus.

In this talk, Alex Wallar will describe how such a transit system operates, how we’ve been able to optimize the routes of thousands of vehicles in real-time, and how demand-responsive bus systems pave the way for equitable transportation for all.

Biography:

Alex Wallar is a co-founder and the CTO of The Routing Company. Alex was pursuing a Ph.D. in EECS at MIT where he developed algorithms for optimizing mobility-on-demand systems. In 2019, he withdrew from his Ph.D. to co-found TRC alongside Menno van der Zee.  Prior to MIT, Alex received his BS in computer science at the University of St Andrews. Alex is passionate about making transportation equitable for everybody, everywhere.
