David is currently a holder of a MITACS Entrepreneurship grant and E4I was also part of the CDL (Creative Destruction Lab) at the U. Of Toronto a couple of years ago.  I am also involved with E4I.  E4I’s objective is to provide cities and municipalities with critical information about the health of their road network and in general infrastructure from low cost and ubiquitous sensing strategies by leveraging AI including computer vision.  David’s talk will discuss what E4I has already accomplished and as well as discussing some recent project results.   These projects have identified some open research problem opportunities which will be discussed.
