Join us for an insightful discussion about how AI technologies can help building more efficient, sustainable, and livable urban Smart cities.

Launched in 2021 by CNRS@CREATE, the first international subsidiary of the French National Scientific Research Center, DesCartes Program aims to develop disruptive hybrid AI to serve the smart city and enable optimized decision-making in complex situations for critical urban systems.

This program mainly focuses on utilizing AI technologies  to develop and enhance "digital twins" of smart cities. These digital twins serve as powerful tools for urban planning, predictive analytics, operational efficiency and maintenance, as well as citizen engagement. By leveraging AI and digital twin technologies, the project wishes to create intelligent and sustainable urban environments that can adapt and respond to the evolving needs of residents but also to the challenges of urbanization.

Join us for an insightful discussion to understand how AI research can contribute to building "smart cities of the future".

The conference will be followed by an optional Networking lunch (12.30pm-2.00pm).
