Artificial intelligence (A.I.) has boundless potential to improve our ways of living and working – but nowhere more than in the ways we move. From self-driving cars to traffic system management, A.I. can present solutions to some of our urban centers most pressing issues: congestion, vehicle pollution, road accidents and more. By creating environments for A.I.-empowered movement to flourish, our global cities can develop ways to get from place to place in smarter, faster and more coordinated ways.
