Artificial intelligence (AI) technologies approaches have been extensively used for the spatial modeling of complex geographic phenomena. The last decades have witnessed significantly advanced in both the speed and the performance of computing by the emergence of AI technologies. AI can be applied to solve a range of problems, such as spatial optimization, land use planning, big data applications, or GIS and suitability analysis and so on.

The goal of this session is to create a platform for presenting and stimulating discussion about spatial analysis and modeling (SAM) using artificial intelligence, geospatial big data, dynamic modeling, and high-performance computing techniques. Topics may include, but are not limited to:

(1) Machine learning and artificial intelligence in SAM
(2) Dynamic modeling (e.g. cellular automata and agent-based modeling)
(3) Quantitative analysis
(5) High-performance computing in SAM
