In an interview for the Local Council Roads Innovation Group, our Chief Executive, Steve Birdsall and Chief Technology Officer, Dr Stephen Remde, discuss the role of AI for Gaist and for the wider highways sector.

Steve and Stephen discuss, the “hype and headline grabbing,” the limitations of AI and how it is set to bring significant benefits to the sector.

Steve says: “It will reach into every aspect of what we do-from designing material and helping assess the safety of sites and the equipment on them, to inspecting roads to performance monitoringSystems ‘supported’ by A.I. will improve efficiency in all these tasks.”

Dr Remde adds that, at Gaist, “AI is a big part of the future for us. We continue to invest at a significant rate to help support our technical developments that will help provide information to road operators that will ensure they can make the best decisions.”
