Advancements in sensor, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and robotic technologies have formed a foundation to enable a transformation from traditional .. Read more engineering systems to complex adaptive systems. This paradigm shift will bring exciting changes to civil infrastructure systems and their builders, operators and managers. Funded by the INSPIRE University Transportation Center (UTC), Dr. Qin’s group investigated the holism of an AI-robot-inspector system for bridge inspection. Dr. Qin will discuss the need for close collaboration among the constituent components of the AI-robot-inspector system. In the workplace of bridge inspection using drones, the mobile robotic inspection platform rapidly collected big inspection video data that need to be processed prior to element-level inspections. She will illustrate how human intelligence and artificial intelligence can collaborate in creating an AI model both efficiently and effectively. Obtaining a large amount of expert-annotated data for model training is less desirable, if not unrealistic, in bridge inspection.
