1 Certificate of the Award
“Deep Learning-Based Urban Future Development Forecasting System” is based on the urban development and evaluation ideology proposed by CAE Member, Prof. WU Zhiqiang, which includes the concept of “City-being” and the “City-Tree” analysis method. The research project integrates the statistic data of “Oxford Economics Global Cities 2030” and yearbooks of Yangtze River Delta cities as well as Anhui, and explores the relationship between the internal factors affecting the long-term and complex process of urban development and its morphology. A feasible mode is designed for urban development model identification and evaluation. Prof. CAO Buyang is in charge of the algorithm implementation of the system. This award is a recognition of the outstanding progress of Yangtze River Delta Intelligent Planning and Collaborative Innovation Center(CIUC) in the field of AI application and its leading position in China.
