CAPE Lecture Series  –  Inaugural lecture on the “Self Learning Car”, to be given by JLR

We are pleased to announce that, as the inaugural lecture in the new CAPE Lecture Series, a talk entitled “The Self Learning Car” will be given at 4:00pm in Lecture Room LR4 at the Engineering Department main site in Trumpington Street.  The speakers will be Kris Kobylinski and Dr Thomas Popham, both from Jaguar Land Rover Research.

Everyone is welcome to come along.  Refreshments will be available from 3:30pm.


The talk will explore recent work done to join together two, previously unrelated, concepts: machine learning and the automotive environment.  Jaguar Land Rover Research call this idea the Self-Learning Car.  Until recently, vehicular features have been developed using standard software and engineering techniques, however this only works for a limited class of problems.  We therefore will explore some recent work on machine learning, data mining and artificial intelligence techniques for developing new customer features, and how these approaches have to be customised for use within the challenging automotive environment.  We will also look at the benefits, opportunities and challenges of machine learning within the automotive environment and will share our vision for the future of this technology.
