Bringing the Built Environment to Life via Artificial Intelligence and Evolutionary Game Theory and its Impact on Resilience
With the rise of the internet of things, we are getting closer to creating the Digital Twins of the built environment. Civil engineers are at their prime for modernizing the built environment that is increasingly more resilient against natural and anthropogenic hazards while conquering ambitious sustainable goals. The foundation for this ambitious vision is laid by combining the strengths of the following fields: artificial intelligence (AI) within computer science; game theory within economics and political, biological, and social sciences; system identification and damage detection within electrical and mechanical engineering; and smart structures and resilience from civil engineering.
