April Meeting

A&WMA’s Central Texas Chapter’s meeting on Thursday, April 25th, 2019

Topic: Artificial Intelligence and Remote Sensing . . . EHS Compliance in a Rapidly Evolving 21st Century World

Artificial intelligence, quantum computing advancements, and remote sensing technology will soon dramatically change the EHS world.  Cyber physical systems that characterize the 4th industrial revolution are beginning to blur the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres.  A simpler compliance system where A.I. and advanced technologies help humans master the complexities of the law, the source, and the physical environment all in real-time–providing “instant compliance” or near “instant compliance”—does not appear to be only possible.  It might be inevitable.  This presentation talks about the expected changes and how EHS practitioners can position themselves to be a part of and thrive in this incredible future to come.
