How is AI transforming the urban environment? Can we create self-repairing cities? What is the Internet of Nature? Why are Synthetic Populations reshaping the future of Transportation Modeling?
To answer these questions (and many others !) we interviewed and exchanged with global pioneers in the emering field of Urban Artificial Intelligence (Urban AI).
They come from Berlin, Amsterdam or New York. They are architects, CEOs or researchers. But they all have in common that they imagine, design and develop the Urban AI of tomorrow.
This project has been realized in collaboration with Cornell Tech.
