International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for Energy Transformation (AIE)

Conference Facilities at THE UNIVERSITY OF VAASA, 20-22 May 2024

Sponsored by the IEEE Finland Section, and the IEEE Finland Section IE/PE/IA/PEL Joint Chapter


The 2024 International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for Energy Transformation (AIE) delves into the cutting-edge applications of AI and ML within contemporary engineering, with a primary focus on the critical domain of energy transformation. The transformative potential of AI/ML algorithms within the energy sector is vast, impacting aspects like time management, efficiency optimization, sustainability enhancement, reliability assurance, and security reinforcement. It is imperative to underline the fundamental role played by data in ensuring the seamless and precise functioning of AI and ML systems. Within the context of energy transformation, a plethora of data sources are available, including sensor data, social metrics, climate and weather statistics, and even politically related data. Moreover, space has emerged as a crucial source of extensive and diverse data. This workshop will spotlight the integration of data harnessed from satellites, particularly CubeSats, and the synergistic utilization of AI/ML algorithms to bolster and sustain the energy transformation sector. Join us to explore this pivotal theme in depth.

In this workshop, there will be internationally recognized Keynote Speakers, a wide-open and in-depth presentation of contemporary research articles, and a poster session with practitioners and modeling designers. The workshop is supported by the School of Technology and Innovations as well as by the Digital Economy, and VEBIC research platforms, at the University of Vaasa, as well as in collaboration with the Copernicus User Forum Finland, ESA BIC Finland, and sponsored by the IEEE Finland Section, and the IEEE Finland Section IE/PE/IA/PEL Joint Chapter.
