Guidelines for the application of artificial intelligence in the study of the influence of climate change on transport infrastructure
We are witnessing the massive and impressive penetration of artificial intelligence (AI) into many areas of human activity. This process is expected to intensify in the next few decades. In most technical fields, there will be a preponderance of the so-called narrow artificial intelligence with clearly defined tasks and functions. It is usually a coherent set of neural networks trained to solve specific problems. The advantage of narrow AI is that it is entirely controllable and, at the same time, has excellent capabilities. This publication aims to outline guidelines for applying narrow artificial intelligence in investigating the impact of climate change on transport infrastructure. After a brief introduction to narrow artificial intelligence and climate change, various possible areas suitable for AI modeling are explored. Directions and preparatory tasks for collecting climate-sensitive local data on the condition and changes in the transport infrastructure in Bulgaria necessary for AI training are identified.
