Artificial Intelligence – From Science Fiction to Reality

Artificial Intelligence – From Science Fiction to Reality: Strategies, Challenges & Best-Practices for Cities

AI, Machine Learning, Neural Networks… These concepts sound like they are just out of the lab. However, several governments are using these data-driven systems to operate infrastructure, inform or take decisions. By analysing a number of real-world AI applications in cities (directly with those using them) as well as the policy frameworks cities are putting in place to guarantee an ethical use, participants will gain insight to evaluate not just the benefits, but also the risks and ways to address them in advance. The session will discuss with practitioners from leading cities how AI systems are currently used in urban contexts, and how they are tackling the challenges and risks associated to their use.

About the Creative Bureaucracy Festival
The Creative Bureaucracy Festival is the largest festival in the world that brings together innovators in the public sector across all sectors and levels. It has been held in Berlin every year since 2018 and has since inspired partner events around the world. In 2020 and 2021, the event with 400 speakers and 150 sessions was purely digital, gathering up to 18,000 minds and ideas over a week. Central to each day was the Highlight Hour, where festival president Charles Landry and television journalist Astrid Frohloff presented the day’s highlights.
