Visions of an Algorithmic City

How might an artificial intelligence imagine the city of the future? This “pen plotter”, developed here in the CityLAB, uses a learning algorithm to sketch a new city plan every day. The algorithm is fed a basis of data consisting of the layouts of various existing cities. The AI then uses various techniques to interpret, reconfigure and process the data. The source code for the plotter is open source and is free to be changed, adapted and developed further.
