AI accelerating Cities transition to carbon neutrality

Project description

How AI can speed up cities’ shift to carbon neutrality

Today, around 75 % of Europeans live in cities. Urban areas account for up to 80 % of global energy consumption and around the same share of CO2 emissions. Artificial intelligence (AI), which is one of the fastest-growing technologies in recent years, can play a mission-driven role in cities’ climate action plans. The EU-funded AI4Cities project will play a leading role in this initiative by developing breakthrough solutions. Specifically, it will assign pragmatic and solvable 'missions' from city action plans to AI developers, who will use these to design solutions. The project will support the climate action commitments of six European cities (Helsinki, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Paris, Stavanger and Tallinn), and it will define their needs and requirements.
