Ai4Cities partners up with World Summit AI
The EU-funded project AI4Cities will be present as a partner at the World Summit AI in Amsterdam, from 12-13 October. At this conference, gathering AI-related startups, entrepreneurs, researchers, investors to discuss the latest AI developments, issues and challenges, the project will present its three-year collaboration between cities and AI-based startups. AI4Cities can be found at stand number A30.
In January 2020, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Greater Paris, Helsinki, Tallinn and Stavanger joined forces to go through a innovative Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) to find AI-based solutions that would help reduce emissions in their energy and mobility domains. 100 companies applied, following a selection process, 7 were chosenthis year to pilot their prototypes in the AI4Cities cities. 4 of those focused on energy, 3 on Mobility.
At the World Summit AI the cities and suppliers will introduce the project, discuss how AI solutions can be applied in public-private partnerships and provide a deep dive into how AI-based technologies can be used to make cities’ energy and mobility domains more sustainable, leading to happier and more livable cities in the process. AI4Cities will also reflect on some of the challenges it encountered and take a first look into the future of societal uses of AI.
The solutions include:
- Holoni leverages AI beyond the prediction of solar production and predicts how much solar surplus can be generated from positive energy buildings. Piloted in Copenhagen
- SPIKE is an all-in-one, cloud-based software/hardware platform supporting data exchange with proprietary IoT-enabled devices and communication with other IoT devices/platforms. Piloted in Amsterdam and Copenhagen
- BEE combines several of the latest technologies to connect buildings with the energy grid and their environment and to optimise their overall emissions impact. Piloted in Helsinki and Stavanger
- C-in.City provides cities with near real-time carbon emission monitoring. It empowers citizens by providing them with near real-time transparent information on how they can reduce their emissions, which also enables policy makers to design the most effective and actionable policy option. Piloted in Copenhagen and Greater Paris
- AVENUE predicts the impact of shared mobility services on urban transport GHG emissions. It puts relevant data into an AI-based analytical engine that enables demand monitoring and, based on it, creates demand prediction models and GHG emission models. Piloted in Stavanger and Tallinn
- The MPAT Tool is an engine to optimise the CO2 emission-reduction potential of city mobility policies, with a focus on shared micro-mobility. Piloted in Amsterdam and Tallinn
- Ix3 takes information from traffic cameras and from other traffic sources and then integrates into the city’s traffic light system, leading to increased traffic fluency and a decrease of unnecessary stops and CO2 emissions.
During two days at the World Summit AI, visitors will have the opportunity to learn more about these solutions and about how they affected the cities they were piloted in. More information on AI4Cities’ activities at the World Summit can be found here.
