Scotland Data Science & Technology MeetUp: Towards the autonomous project (Mudano) & Can Financial Services....(Deloitte)

Presentation 1 - Towards the autonomous project

Mudano is developing the autonomous project. We are using AI technology to build a project management platform that will predict project risks and suggest the most efficient route to ensure on-time and on-cost project delivery. Consider the driverless car – using knowledge of its environment combined with AI-based decision making, the car reacts to changes in the environment and avoids emergency situations. We are developing the technology do this for large-scale project management.

Dr Euan Wielewski - Euan is Head of Research at Mudano. He leads Mudano's Data Science R&D and UX Research Teams, and has responsibility for Mudano's research and development strategy. Before joining Mudano in February 2018, Euan led the Materials Research Group at the University of Glasgow, where he was a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Mechanical Engineering. He has held postdoctoral research positions at Cornell University and Carnegie Mellon University. He has a 1st Class MEng in Mechanical Design Engineering from the University of Glasgow and DPhil in Engineering Science from the University of Oxford.
