Fuelling digitalisation in mobility with AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) is becoming increasingly popular for addressing various demands within the mobility industry. Nowadays, most of these challenges can be solved using artificial intelligence (AI). However, the lack of familiarity with this topic often leads to uncertainty about how to get started. The EIT Community AI Challenge is a door into AI.

The EIT Community AI Challenge looks for corporates who want to tackle their digitalisation and sustainability transformation challenges with the help of AI solutions, presenting an exciting opportunity for businesses to leverage the power of AI to improve their competitiveness.

The EIT Community’s AI challenge has been a call to action for developers, data scientists, and AI enthusiasts to tackle real-world problems through innovative AI solutions. During the challenge, all participants addressed diverse challenges in sectors such as healthcare, climate change, education, and sustainable energy. The goal was not just to demonstrate technical expertise, but to create tangible solutions with the potential to drive positive change on a global scale.

The winning projects were selected during an event hosted last month in December 2023:

First place: WHO & Turing Biosystems

  • Challenge addressed: Interpretable hybrid AI for determinants of cancer.
  • Outcome: Their approach has significantly contributed to advancing AI applications in cancer research.

Second place: Travna & Asistobe

  • Challenge addressed: Efficient and cost-effective networks for inter-city and local bus transport.
  • Outcome: Their innovative solutions have notably improved the efficiency of transportation networks

Third place: Braga & Moven

  • Challenge addressed: Urban mobility mode prediction.
  • Outcome: Their work in urban mobility prediction stands out for its potential impact on urban planning and sustainability.

All winning projects have the potential to inspire further research, development, and implementation of AI solutions in various industries. From healthcare to climate action, education to sustainable energy, the challenge has demonstrated that AI can be a powerful force for positive change when harnessed responsibly and creatively, highlighting the potential of AI to reshape industries and improve lives.

Furthermore, the challenge has also catalysed the development of a global network of AI experts committed to addressing pressing societal challenges. We are on the brink of a new era where AI-driven innovations will play a pivotal role in shaping a better and more sustainable future!
