Artificial Intelligence in Cyber-physical Systems


Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are powerful systems that provide holistic solutions for hardware and software incorporating physical components, such as sensors, and computational algorithms. To make CPS more powerful, Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology has been applied in Cyber-physical systems to create "Smart CPS". New smart CPSs are developed for different sectors, such as energy and buildings (e.g., BIM), transportation (like self-driving cars), healthcare and manufacturing (i.e., Industri 4.0) to handle problems, such as limited resources, energy consumptions, automated decision-making, delay-tolerant media and communication. There are still a lot of challenges for AI in CPS: for example, finding, integrating, and managing services/data carried by CPS is a challenge; Human beings need access to the information carried by the CPS to interact and cooperate with components and software within and between CPS. New development methodologies, models, tools and infrastructures are required to face challenges of new requirements of CPS. This influences the environment with, e.g., security, integrity, and privacy issues. This talk will provide an overview of CPS and AI techniques for CPS, as well as discuss smart CPS that includes AI-technologies to perform complex tasks.
