IP505245 - Applied AI and Control

About

Lessons are not given in the academic year 2021/2022

Course content

The course is open for the students who are interested in artificial intelligence (AI) and willing to apply AI to practical applications. Focus will be on principles and implementation of AI methods for marine engineering. Throughout the course, students will gain the knowledge of concept, methodology and experiments from examples of real projects in marine domain. The course content are as follows:

  • AI introduction
  • Data collection, analysis and purification
  • AI and control methods
    • supervised learning
    • unsupervised learning
    • reinforcement learning
    • deep learning…
  • AI in different applications
    • Ship motion prediction
    • Engine fault diagnosis and prognosis
    • ANN-based controller for ship docking
    • ANN-based controller for force allocation in DP operation
    • Thruster fault detection and isolation
    • Deep reinforcement learning for COLREgs-ompliant maneuvering
    • Sea state estimation…

Learning outcome

The students are expected to:

  • Have a good understanding of AI methods and their pros and cons;
  • Have knowledge of challenges in marine applications;
  • Know how to deal with data, formulate the problem, simplify model complicity, and select AI methods;
  • Be able to design and implement their own AI algorithms for real applications.

Learning methods and activities

Lectures, exercises and examples from real applications will be provided in the course. There will be individual mandatory assignments and exam project. 75% of the mandatory assignments have to be approved before admission to examination.
