About Asst. Prof. Lawrence Henesey
I currently work at the School of Computing (COM) a department located in Blekinge Institute of Technology, which has been ranked #6 in the world for Software Engineering. Since 2000, I have been researching on the application of Distributed Artificial Intelligence in Container Ports.
My research is on helping stakeholders in the port and terminal industry in achieving gains in efficiency. I research the application of various A.I. technologies, such as Multi-Agents, Machine Learning, Neural Networks, and Genetic Algorithms. By either conducting projects in which we employ methodologies for piloting, simulation or emulation I am seeking ways for increasing port or terminal productivity. Most of my work has been on employing automation, electrification, digitalisation, simulation, and other information technologies on various problems found in logistics systems and networks.
In addition, I have worked “hands-on” with various types of machinery such as AGVs, ASCs, Automated cranes, RTGs, and RMGs.
