Artificial intelligence prize boosts engineers

A prize-winning research paper is already helping our engineers to deliver better services. ​

Andrew Starkey took home the prize for the best application paper at the British Computing Society’s 2016 Artificial Intelligence (AI) Conference.

The annual event brings together members of the international AI community.

Andrew says: “The paper looks at how we can use AI to more effectively organise engineering resources and make sure teams have the right skills in the right place.

“It also helps identify which teams can benefit from training.”

Andrew co-authored his paper with Sid Shakya, Gilbert Owusu and professor Hani Hagras from the University of Essex.

Gilbert says: “AI technologies enable better decision-making. They also provide insights into how we can optimise our processes and use our resources for better service delivery.”
