Living Lab with CityScope using h-ABM


In the CityScope platform, we leverage humanized Agent-Based Models (h-ABMs) to elevate urban simulation to new heights of realism and complexity. Unlike traditional ABMs, which often rely on rigid rules and probabilities, our h-ABMs incorporate realistic choices, learning capabilities, social connections, and diversity. This sophisticated approach allows for a more nuanced understanding of urban dynamics and decision-making processes. By simulating how diverse individuals and groups interact within urban environments, h-ABMs facilitate the exploration of complex social phenomena and potential interventions in a more detailed and dynamic way. Integrating these advanced features into CityScope enables us to model and analyze urban scenarios with unprecedented accuracy, paving the way for more informed urban planning and policy development.

Living Lab Architecture

Our architecture combines Native AI systems with Large Language Models (LLMs) within humanized Agent-Based Models (h-ABMs) to transform urban planning and development. This powerful synergy enables our h-ABMs to:

  1. Promote Enhanced Quality of Life: By intelligently simulating and optimizing various urban scenarios, our h-ABMs predict and facilitate improvements in services, infrastructure, and living conditions, directly enhancing the quality of life for residents.
  2. Support Greater Sustainability: Leveraging AI's predictive power and LLMs' profound understanding, our h-ABMs can forecast the long-term impacts of urban planning decisions. This capability supports the development of more sustainable cities through efficient resource management, reduced environmental footprints, and promotion of sustainable practices.
  3. Generate Vibrant and Dynamic Urban Fabric: Our h-ABMs are designed to simulate the complex interactions within urban ecosystems, fostering the creation of dynamic, inclusive, and vibrant urban spaces. These simulations help urban planners and decision-makers visualize the potential effects of their policies, enabling them to craft environments that thrive economically and socially.

This architecture not only simulates what is possible but also provides actionable insights that can be implemented to make these possibilities a reality, thereby shaping future cities that are resilient, sustainable, and conducive to human flourishing.
