Blending AI with Urban Planning

November 16, 2023 @ 5:30 pm 7:30 pm

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning have been touted as the next technological revolution that will replace many of the tasks currently performed by the Urban Planning profession. One such task is determining the development potential of properties. However, building an accurate, data-driven machine learning system to assess property development potential is not without its challenges. The limited size of datasets used to train and validate these systems often leads to poor modelling outcomes.

Instead of relying solely on these AI systems to perform this task, a possible strategy is to blend the expert knowledge of urban planners with AI and machine learning. Could this combination lead to a more accurate assessment of property development potential?

Bradley will explore some of the challenges of the problem, and how his team’s Forecaz platform aims to solve them. This presentation will cover:

  • The challenges of building a data-driven machine learning platform that assesses the development propensity of properties.
  • Explain how the knowledge of urban planners can be captured and used to generate to robust urban growth models.
  • Show the practical application of using this strategy to predict gentle housing density in our suburbs.
  • Provide insights into the results of this strategy.

About Bradley:
Bradley Rasmussen predicts the future of cities. He is the CEO and Founder of Sizztech. Bradley is highly passionate about resolving urban design and growth issues using big data and artificial intelligence. Bradley has a wealth of knowledge predicting the future urban growth of cities. He has been involved with modelling the urban expansion of many Australian council areas, including Brisbane City Council and the City of Gold Coast – the two largest councils in Australia.

Event schedule:
5:30 pm: Networking (30 mins)
6:00 pm: Presentation and Q&A (1 hour)
