Smart technology for infrastructure

Smart infrastructure is changing our built environment as we go about our daily life. In this one-day short course, you’ll explore some of the industries involved in infrastructure development and learn how they’re using smart technologies to innovate and reshape their business processes.

About this course

Artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data technologies are changing the face of the infrastructure sector. They are driving greater efficiency, increasing productivity, and greatly simplifying design and construction processes and life-of-asset maintenance.

While Australia has generally been proactive in adopting these new technologies for the planning, design and ongoing maintenance of infrastructure, the fast pace of new developments means that there are gains still to be made.

The course provides an overview of technologies used to deliver smart infrastructure followed by public and private sector case studies on how smart infrastructure is delivering benefits to customer experience.

Course structure

The course will start with an overview of the technologies used in smart infrastructure, including:

    • geospatial and geographical information systems
    • internet of Things
    • machine learning
    • data for smart cities.

You’ll explore real case studies of smart ICT infrastructure applications, both in Australia and overseas (presented by NSW Government, Transport for NSW, Mastercard and Microsoft), and engage in round-table discussions the adoption of these technologies in a range of professional contexts.

A detailed agenda is available on request.
