AI in F1 and motorsport applications

AI in F1 and motorsport applications

Artificial intelligence, big data, data-driven approach are all words we are used to hearing lately, but are they real and are they actually being used in a practical way or are just “science projects” for some crazy engineers? 

Looking at this topic from the performance-oriented motorsport world I can ensure all “these big words” media likes to use are real and they are already being used and their influence will only grow in the upcoming years. 

During this webinar we will look at different practical examples where “machines” are used to improve the performance of a racing car both directly and indirectly (by aiding engineers in the analysis of the key performance parameters).

Born in Barcelona in 1992. From a very young age I knew I wanted to be involved in motorsports.  As a kid I always tried to convince my parents to let me race but I soon realized that was not going to happen as I was way too cautious to be a racer so I focused my efforts and attention into engineering.

Once I finished school at St. Peter’s I studied a degree in Engineering at the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya. From then onwards, things started to go very fast for me, I moved to the UK where I studied an MSC in motorsport engineering at Oxford Brookes Engineering, at that time I also started working for a team that was based in Barcelona, so that year was super intense as I had to travel to the races around Europe whilst attending lectures, doing exams and other projects. Was a very stressful time but was super important to create a base for the future. 

At the end of my studies I got my dream job in F1 and moved to Italy and there my “professional career” started. Since then I have been lucky enough to work at very different teams/companies where I have seen very different approaches to problem solving which at the end of the day is what engineering is all about
