AI for city analysis workshop (Workshops)

Create your first neural network and learn how to use algorithms of artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence has long ceased to be something of a fantasy world and continues to find more and more applications in real life. Machine learning does more accurate calculations and faster research, and provides more accessible communication between people. Gradually, its tools penetrate processes of urban development. Artificial intelligence already knows how tocompare situations in different cities, how tomodel building plans, and how toturn satellite images into maps. Developing the skills of working with urban data will help architects not only optimise the planning process, but also better understand the needs of citizens.

At this workshop on spatial analysis of the city, participants will learn how to use artificial intelligence algorithms to analyse the urban environment under the guidance of developers and researchers from Strelka Design Bureau.

Over the course of two days, participants will:

  • Get acquainted with the principles of artificial intelligence
  • Discover which algorithms can be used to solve urban development problems
  • Assemble their first neural network trained on open urban data

The workshop will be useful to architects and urbanists with primary programming skills who are interested in machine learning.

Curators of the workshop:

Alexander Kamenev – architect, urbanist, head of the “Artificial Intelligence for Cities” lab at Strelka KB. Founder of the “Sarafan” project – a system for finding outsourced architects.

Vadim Egorov – architect of informational systems, technoleader, head developer of products based on machine learning at Strelka KB.

Sofia Lobanova – data scientist at Strelka KB, developer of digital products based on machine learning.

Applications can be submitted until November 24. The number of available spots is limited. A list of the chosen participants will be announced on November 26. To apply, fill out the questionnaire. A portfolio indicating the described programming skills is needed. For all questions, email

Participants will be working individually; having your own laptop is required.

The workshop is being held as part of the In the City conference organised by Gazprom Neft, and is part of the Rodnye Goroda / Hometowns social investment
