Human-Level AI for

urban sustainability

our vision for cities

Cities traditionally have been studied and analyzed as static and untangled snapshots of infrastructure, people, and the environment. In AItown, we see cities as one narrative centered around people and the ways in which they are in harmony with buildings, transportation, communication systems, and energy infrastructure. 


Today’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) is limited in understanding and inferring cities’ and peoples’ behaviors. AI needs to move beyond correlation-level relationships between data sets toward human-level perceptions and inference. We bring our expertise in causal inference and Machine learning to create a decision  support system based on Human-Level AI, HAI-Core®, to better understand, model, and manage smart grids and smart cities.

Analytics paradigm shift by HAI-CORE®

Companies need “prescriptive” machines that can tell them what to do in response to different circumstances. However, the classic AI, at its best, is a predictive machine that can tell what the likelihood of an event to happen is. The need for prescriptive analytics is even more for companies who deal with multi-network systems due to interdependencies in such complex systems.
The causal model behind HAI-Core® technology makes it a paradigm shift in AI from conventional predictive analytics to prescriptive stage. Prescriptive analytics leads the decision-makers towards active outcomes such as “what to do” than the typical passive outcomes like “what will happen.


Human-Level Intelligence
HAI-Core® innovative algorithm brings machine learning to the next level. Machine learning, at its best, reveals the similarities between datasets without understanding the cause-and-effect relationships behind systems.
The HAI-Core® is designed to characterize the interdependency and interoperability among various levels of interactions in multi-network systems such as urban infrastructure.

HAI-Core® flexible architecture makes a capable data analytical tool for various network sizes from small to large scales. Its data-driven model preserves the characteristic patterns that originated from fundamental physics laws behind systems.

HAI-Core®‘s architecture provides stimulus security in the pipeline from data acquisition to knowledge delivery with its embedded Blockchain technology.


HAI-Core® for City

HAI-Core® technology plays a crucial role in managing and optimizing city infrastructure, including electricity, transportation, water, environment, etc. HAI-Core® for City is a gateway for smart city implementation by bringing real smartness to the operation of city utilities. By understanding and characterizing interoperability among different layers of a city, HAI-Core® supports the operation and control of smart city functions.

HAI-Core® for Grid

HAI-Core®  technology supports electric grid operation and planning. It paves the ground for grid digitalization by merging traditional grid management systems and expert-based decision making with human-level artificial intelligence. Our distinctive technology is adaptive and user-friendly for electric grid operators and engineers.
