Description of Activities on AI

Project: Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Sustainable Urban Development in Cities

UN-Habitat is collaborating with Mila to produce a policy paper on the application of artificial intelligence in urban contexts. The paper is expected to provide a description of AI and AI-based technologies and discuss the ethical concerns with the use of AI systems. It will explore examples of AI use cases and AI case studies in cities and what lessons can be drawn from such projects. The paper will conclude with a set of recommendations to guide urban managers looking to introduce AI solutions in their cities.
