When artificial intelligence is involved in the management of cities and territories – EconomyMatin


The massive use of technologies in our daily life is a concrete reality today. Among the great revolutions we are witnessing, it is clear that the management of territories is now completely rethought. In this sense, artificial intelligence supports this movement and will allow the emergence of new fields of the possible in the service of citizens.

Rethinking our urban way of life

One thing is certain, the territories are evolving at many levels and technology will be a tremendous accelerator for creating virtuous projects that are at the service of all. In this context, by capitalizing on the massive data that already exists, and giving it meaning through artificial intelligence, it will be possible to bring the concept of intelligent territory to life. The contributions will then be numerous and will make it possible to have relevant management of various key points, for example health, the environment, flow management, safety, energy, etc.

We will then be able to truly speak of “Smart city” and build or redevelop cities in which the concepts of service to residents and better living will be central data. Thanks to artificial intelligence, it will also be possible to have a management based on anticipation and thus suffer less from the vagaries by making informed decisions.

An impact that goes far beyond the simple city

Land management is not just about “urban” aspects. In this sense, artificial intelligence could also play a central role in other use cases, in particular for a better analysis and knowledge of wildlife.. Thus, thanks to the data and images collected from sensors installed in forests or in natural parks, it will be possible to access valuable information on the species present in the territory. Here again, artificial intelligence will occupy a central place, will provide precise information and will even make it possible to model different situations, in support of the parks teams.

Successful AI projects applied to territory management

It is clear that a successful Artificial Intelligence project cannot be done without close collaboration between several types of stakeholders. Indeed, if artificial intelligence projects appear to be a “technical” subject, their relevance will also largely depend on the involvement of external stakeholders who benefit from other skills: environments, urban planning, transport, health, etc. Thus, by bringing together researchers, engineers and business experts, it will then be possible to build AI projects that integrate all the fundamentals necessary to generate concrete and exploitable results outside of simple experiments.

Artificial intelligence is therefore a major component of the management and renovation of territories. More than ever, researchers, elected officials and business experts must take the time to work together to rely on this lever which will allow them to give life to large-scale societal projects. It is on this condition that it will be possible to offer quality services to residents, improve resource management and better preserve the environment.
