Title: Integration of Artificial Intelligence Into Smart City Initiatives
Session organizers: Zongtian Guo and Eriketti Servou
Artificial intelligence (AI) in the context of smart city is an emerging
topic of research and practice. Several researchers have noted that AI is
becoming an increasingly significant component of smart city agendas.
Applications of AI in smart city include a wide range of sectors, such as
energy, finance, national security, health care, criminal justice,,
transportation, water management and waste management. Innovative concepts
such as city brains, robots, automated vehicles or building futuristic
cities from scratch (i.e. NEOM), all feature advanced AI capabilities
promising greater efficiency and sustainability in cities. Even though AI
has extensive application prospects, there is still a lack of social
science research on the wider integration of AI into smart city agendas in
terms of societal opportunities, risks and disruptions.
This session seeks to explore the integration of AI into smart city
initiatives (agendas). It aspires to stimulate discussion about conceptual,
methodological, and empirical aspects of AI technological advancements and
experiences embedded in smart cities. It also seeks to elaborate on the
impacts of AI in smart cities in terms of public value, citizen
participation, urban infrastructure, urban governance, urban planning,
urban economy, urban platforms, and urban sustainability.
We invite researchers working on the intersections of AI and smart city to
present their work on addressing a variety of urban issues (e.g. urban
energy, transport, safety, water quality and waste-disposal, etc.) through
the integration of various AI technologies (e.g. big data, machine
learning, Internet of Things, optimization algorithms) into smart city
initiatives. The session’s objective is to deepen our understanding of
integrating AI into smart city initiatives from a wider socio-political
perspective. In this context, we call for papers, engaging with, but not
limited to, the following:
Ethics and biases of AI in smart cities.
Critical analyses of urban AI implementations.
Green and equitable AI applications for smart cities.
The ways user’s experiences are handled by AI, and in turn inform smart
Data-driven AI and public value in smart cities.
Politics of AI in smart cities and impact on urban governance, including
algorithmic governance, platform governance, platform urbanism.
Co-production of AI technologies and urban development practices.
AI and citizen participation in smart cities.
