More than 68% of the world’s population live in highly densely built cities. Those cities are not only causing high emissions and urban heat island impacts on the environment, they are also the most vulnerable areas for the impacts of climate change. Thus, immediate climate adaptation of cities is necessary.
AI-based methods not only allow us to automatize observations and make future predictions about the climate change related indicators of cities, they also help us to understand those indicators better by using explainable AI techniques. In this lecture, you will see a brief introduction to our studies in this field.
