AI and the changing nature of our cities￼
Ways data can solve urban problems
Various studies on the increased rate of urbanization indicate that 66 percent of the world’s population will live in cities by 2050. In India, The National Smart Cities Initiative Mission was launched in 2015 and over 100 cities are in the process of becoming smart. The framework of a smart city is to address urban problems through sustainable development based on ICT (Information and Communications Technology).
Artificial Intelligence is increasingly informing our decisions when it comes to urban planning and the successful transition to smart cities. AI is becoming more integrated with the development of smart cities through the collection and sorting of voluminous amounts of data. The interpretation of such data allows officials to optimize city services and allocate utilities efficiently.
The following are various applications of AI that could help cities:
1. Safety and Security:
The application of AI to the field of public security would see the use of statistical insights along with advancements in CCTV footage and the use of drones. Officials could use such information to map out a city in terms of crimes and come up with adequate solutions. In terms of emergency responses, data regarding multiple factors can be used to get to a destination quicker.
Officials can use data to resolve traffic issues and increase mobility. In terms of parking, maps could be created to locate available spots and notify people when spots open up. There are multiple ways to integrate AI into your life including applications like Citility. Citility offers real-time updates on all the information required to get you from point A to point B with an easy-to-use multi-modal platform.

3. Resource management:
The possibilities of applying AI to resource management are seemingly endless. Officials can use data to streamline resources such as water and power by optimizing the grids that maintain them. Similarly, officials can improve city planning and funding allocation by letting AI guide them as to which areas need it the most. Waste and disposal management can also be improved by installing AI garbage bins that inform officials when they are ready to be cleared.
AI and urban planning will combine further, especially when it comes to improving a citizen’s day-to-day life and as AI technology continues to advance, the application of data to solve issues will become effortless.
