Urban Artificial Intelligence in Amsterdam

We, at Amsterdam Intelligence from Gemeente Amsterdam, are passionate about innovation and technology but without forgetting what really matters - our citizens.


In this talk Maarten Sukel, AI lead at the City of Amsterdam will talk about several interesting projects where AI is used for better cities tomorrow.


Examples are the usage of computer vision to scan the streets of the city for any issues, such as garbage on the streets, to allow for a more fair and efficient cleaning and maintenance of the streets. The use of natural language processing to route service requests, but also how Lidar technology and point cloud data will be used in the future to accurately map assets in the city.
