Theory and practice for human-centric cities
Publisher: To be published by Springer as part of Studies in Systems, Decision and Control - Book Series by Springer.
Editors: Edy Portmann, Luis Terán, Carmen Vaca, and Jaime Meza
In the age of Artificial Intelligence, decision-making processes for the economy and society have to deal with uncertainty, vagueness, and imprecision. This book expects to explore conceptual considerations for the design of cognitive cities and concrete applications. It illustrates various aspects and dimensions of cognitive cities. The contributions will provide an overview of the wide diversity of cognitive city conceptualizations to better understand why it is important to think about the design of our human-centered cities. The book intends to adopt a transdisciplinary approach since the cognitive city concept can only be achieved through cooperation across different academic disciplines (e.g., economics, computer science, mathematics, urban planning) and between research and practice. More and more people live in a growing number of ever-larger cities. As such, it is important to reflect on how cities need to be designed to provide their inhabitants with the means and resources for a good life. The cognitive city is an emerging, innovative approach to address this need.
