Port automation at Ignite22


Anthony Howcroft, CEO of SWARM Engineering, presented at the IGNITE22 event organised by Braid Theory in San Pedro. Anthony discussed the way in which multi-problem optimisation can be used to tackle some of the efficiency issues found in typical port environments such as the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach.

SWARM's multi-agent approach with deep reinforcement learning offers a new way to tackle some of the most persistent challenges faced by participants in the port eco-system - from freight companies looking at the use of chassis, through to the efficient stacking of containers.
