IBM’s tool will allow users to streamline maintenance decisions and move towards data-driven insights.

Aging infrastructure is an expensive problem, but ignoring it costs cities heavily. IBM is taking on the issue of preserving civil infrastructure by using artificial intelligence (AI) and big data to prolong the life of highways, bridges, and other civil structures.

Trillions of dollars remained unfunded in civil infrastructure repairs, an alarming number considering how vital infrastructure is to industry. Infrastructure requires proper maintenance or citizens will experience disruptions. IBM is hoping to transform the way infrastructure decisions happen, providing AI-based, data-driven analysis for better results.
