Almost half of humanity today lives in urban environments and that number will grow to 80 percent or more by the middle of this century, in different parts of the world. Cities are thus the loci of resource consumption, of economic activity, of social interactions, and of education and innovation; they are the cause of our looming sustainability problems but also where those problems must be solved. Cities are also an enormous forum for policy making, as well as an apparently unbounded source of digital data of a wide nature. Artificial intelligence has the potential to play a central role in tackling the underlying hard computational, decision making, and statistical problems of cities.
