SFI Industry Fellowship on performance improvement of Urban Mobility Simulation

Anthony Ventresque

Dr Anthony Ventresque has been awarded an SFI Industry Fellowship of €110,000 to work in collaboration with IBM Research Lab in Dublin on performance improvement of Urban Mobility Simulation. This project is related to the fast and accurate simulation of what-if scenarios in the application area of Smarter Transportation. Transport Mobility Simulation is a very computationally expensive process; however, applications of this technology require super fast solutions which are largely unavailable.
