We are excited to announce that the C2M2 Quantum Artificial Intelligence laboratory (Q-AI lab) initiated research activities related to transportation cyber-physical-social systems where quantum artificial intelligence can be leveraged to extract useful information from real-time, heterogeneous, and high-volume data captured by a plethora of data sources (such as loop detectors, traffic cameras, connected vehicles, pedestrians, cell phone, and social media platforms). C2M2 Q-AI lab has brought together researchers from five C2M2 partner universities from the state of South Carolina to solve the complex transportation issues using Q-AI to better equip the future transportation professionals with much-needed quantum computing skills for the emerging quantum computing era. Both faculties and students from Clemson University, University of South Carolina, Benedict College, South Carolina State University, and the Citadel are actively participating in the lab projects. Earlier C2M2 successfully held the 4th Annual Fall Conference on November 20th, 2020, and the theme of the IBM supported conference was “Quantum Research for Transportation Cyber-Physical-Social Systems”.
Students from the C2M2 Q-AI lab are working on two specific projects related to transportation cyber-physical-social systems, the first one is about real-time incident detection and management whereas the second one is about transportation cybersecurity. Using Cloud computing infrastructures, students are innovating ways to apply quantum artificial intelligence in the projects, under the direct guidance of C2M2 directors.
In conjunction with the launch of our Q-AI Lab launch, C2M2 will also be offering our first Q-AI course through Benedict College. You can find more information about this course by clicking the link below.
