Vinny Cahill

Professor of Computer Science

Vinny Cahill is Professor of Computer Science in the School of Computer Science and Statistics at Trinity College Dublin where his research addresses optimization of urban resource usage and service delivery in order to improve the quality of life and sustainability of cities. Of particular current interest is the design of new AI-based techniques for urban traffic control, highway management and ‘mobility as a service’ to support sustainable mobility with the goal of optimizing travel-time reliability for travellers and freight. 

Vinny leads Trinity’s E3 SUMMIT initiative, which brings together a multidisciplinary team of researchers who are reimagining, designing, and promoting future models of city/region-scale sustainable mobility provision and the governance structures, policies and technologies that will enable them. He is also principal investigator of the SFI-funded ClearWay project, which is investigating new AI-based approaches to traffic management in the presence of autonomous and conventional vehicles.
