AI4Cities @ World Summit AI 12-13 October
The World Summit AI gathers the global ecosystem of AI-related startups, entrepreneurs, researchers, investors to discuss the latest AI developments, issues and challenges. The Ai4Cities project is excited to showcase the results of its three years work at this stage. Join us for an introduction of the project, discussions on how AI soluttions can be applied in public-private partnerships, reflections on the challenges and future of AI solutions, and most importantly a look into how AI technologies can be used to make the energy and mobility domains in cities more sustainable.
In the past three years, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Greater Paris, Helsinki, Tallinn and Stavanger have gone through an innovative public procurement project to find solutions that can help accelerate their journey to carbon neutrality. At the end of this process, they selected seven solutions (4 in energy, 3 in mobility) to pilot the solution in real-life conditions. For two days at the WSAI, AI4Cities will host a stand where these solutions – Avenue, Ix3, MPAT, BEE, C-in.City, Spike and Holoni, will present their work in collaboration with their cities. Visitors will get the opportunity to see how these solutions work, how they make cities more sustainable, and get more insights into how the market can successfully collaborate with the public space to create more liveable, sustainable and healthier cities.

In addition to our presence at the stand, on 12 October Ai4Cities will also be represented in two WSAI sessions:
11:40 – 12:10 – Panel discussion ‘The City as a Living Lab for AI solutions”
During this panel discussion with AI experts, Mark Stoevelaar, CTO Innovation Team for the City of Amsterdam, will present an overview of AI4Cities.
12:10 – 12:30 – AI4Cities deep dive
Sebastian Bruhn, Digitalisation Consultant for the City of Copenhagen, and Grigori Parfjanov, Urban Mobility Expert for the City of Tallinn will go in depth on how the cities and suppliers have worked together to develop the solutions, the effect these solutions have had on the energy and mobility domain in their cities, responsible use of AI, and what the cities and the market can learn for the future from this project. The session will be moderated by Josefine Hintz, PhD candidate at TU Berlin, focusing on how AI can be used for climate actions in European cities. The session will start with an introduction from project coordinator Kaisa Sibelius (Forum Virium Helsinki).
