Urban Computing and Artificial Intelligence: A Data-Driven Tool for Urban Heat Mitigation is the first full synthesis of modern scientific and applied research on climate change, urban warming, and the future of resilient cities. The book helps city governments better understand how to plan for the effects of climate change and impending natural disasters. It compiles the concepts, strategies, and technologies associated with resilient cities, and provides an outline of what constitutes climate change and its behavior relating to urban systems. Finally, the book develops a comprehensive concept for the future resiliency of cities related to hydro-climatology and extreme events.

Next, it explains the physical principles governing the formation of distinct hydro-climatology and resilient cities, and then illustrates how this knowledge can be applied to moderate the undesirable consequences of swift and haphazard urban development (energy, peak electricity demand, health, comfort, economy, and environment) and help to create more sustainable and resilient cities for the future. With urban climate science now a fully-fledged growing field, this timely book fulfils the need to bring together the disparate parts of urban climate research in global cities into a coherent framework. It is an ideal resource for students, researchers, and policymakers in the fields of urban climate, urban architecture and planning, environmental engineering, urban design, and redevelopment.
