CitiX Publishes a FACTS Report with the Veolia Institute, about Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in the City, January 2018 FACTS Reports is an international, peer-reviewed journal, devoted to promoting field-based activities with open access around the world. In 2017, alongside the Veolia Institute, we published a report on “Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in the City,” which focused on understanding what the AI revolution means for our cities; both in terms of opportunities for sustainable urban development as well as the risks it presents. Our analysis brought together thought leadership from AI experts, academia, “civic-tech” and public sector to holistically assess the implications of this revolution for future cities.
