Future Intelligence Lab (FIB) is a highly interdisciplinary lab focusing on the understanding and solutions to complex city problems and urbanization, tackling the challenges of urbanization with smart city infrastructure and advanced simulation to inform real-world urban planning and policymaking. With an unprecedented quantity of data available, we analyze, visualize, and optimize, achieving powerful results made possible with the latest artificial intelligence advances. Our mission is to make a sustainable, smart, and efficient city a reality through strong scientific foundations and cutting-edge technologies developed through high-impact research and large-scale deployment. We leverage a variety of interdisciplinary methods in our studies, including data-centric, Al-centric, and user-centric approaches.
