GeoAI is now an emerging topic in GIS that has the potential to bring in new perspectives into the field. It provides powerful tools for analyzing various types of social media data and helps us quantifying our geo-social systems. Compared with studies using artificial intelligence techniques in other fields, what is special about GeoAI? What advantages do GIScientists have in conducting AI applications? And what should we keep in mind to make GeoAI research more applicable and less biased? In this talk, I will introduce the three main perspectives in GeoAI that, in my opinion, geographers can and should contribute to, which are on one hand important to geography theories, and on the other hand closely related to our domain knowledge; and two points that could help us make GeoAI research safer and more applicable.
