A city is an aggregate of a huge amount of heterogeneous data. However, extracting meaningful values from that data remains a challenge. City Brain is an end-to-end system whose goal is to glean irreplaceable values from big city data, specifically from videos, with the assistance of rapidly evolving artificial intelligence technologies and fast-growing computing capacity. From cognition to optimisation, to decision-making, from search to prediction and ultimately, to intervention, City Brain

In this study, the authors introduce current practices of the City Brain platform in a few cities in China, including what they can do to achieve the goal and make it a reality. Then they focus on the system overview and key technical details of each component of the City Brain system, from cognition to intervention. Lastly, they present a few deployment cases of City Brain in various cities in China.
