Artificial Intelligence in Logistics

    EX 1111 is offered this fall:

There are many ways – some evo­lu­tion­ary, oth­ers rev­o­lu­tion­ary – the trans­porta­tion and logis­tics sec­tor could devel­op to meet the chal­lenges posed by new mar­ket entrants, tech­nol­o­gy, and busi­ness mod­els. The net­work­based nature of the logis­tics indus­try pro­vides a frame­work for imple­ment­ing and scal­ing arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence (AI), ampli­fy­ing the human com­po­nents of high­ly orga­nized glob­al sup­ply chains. In this course, you will build a fun­da­men­tal under­stand­ing of AI, machine, earn­ing, dig­i­tal twins, data ana­lyt­ics, aug­ment­ed real­i­ty, robot­ics, and blockchains in the field of logistics.
