Tutorial: AI for Smart City Innovations with Open Data, in conjunction with International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI), at Buenos Aires, Argentina, July 25-31, 2015
Date of tutorial is not yet confirmed within (25-27 Jul 2015).
The intended audience is a beginner to medium experienced researcher who is curious about AI in general and sustainability applications in particular. The tutorial will expect the audience to have a basic Computer Science background consisting of data structures, algorithms, databases and search.
1. AAAI 2015 tutorial, AI for Smarter Cities. Hype or reality? A Study in Dublin, Bologna, Miami and Rio.
[15 Feb 2015] Tutorial site is up.
In recent years, AI techniques have made tremendous progress in delivering high-quality analysis (e.g., predictions, optimizations) efficiently with large data at scale. However, to turn these advances into innovations rapidly needs the ability to tap into data freely available, use web standards to integrate and compose with sub-systems seamlessly and provide useful insights that can be further reused. A domain that calls for many rapid innovations is Smarter Cities, where cities around the world are aspiring to provide superior quality of life to their citizens while optimizing their cumulative resource footprint.
The aim of the tutorial is to make early and experienced researchers aware of the innovation potential with government and other open data, application programming interfaces (APIs) and AI techniques that enable deep analysis to deliver actionable, unprecedented insights. This area offers a rich avenue for applying AI techniques like machine learning, planning, scheduling, semantics, knowledge representation, data integration, logic, trust and agents. We aim to provide an insightful overview and whet the audiences’ interest to turn their research into useful, innovative, apps that are used for social good.
The topics we will cover are:
i. Health – predicting and managing diseases
ii. Traffic – journey recommendation
iii. Tourism – event management for long-term sustainability
i. Country-level - data.gov, data.gov.in, and
ii. City-level – Chicago, London
i. Open 311 APIs
ii. CitySDK APIs
The AI topics we will cover are:
The tutorial will run for half day.
