Poznań Advances in Artificial Intelligence
Next year, the capital of Wielkopolska will see the opening of Poznań CityLab. This urban innovation laboratory will develop projects based on artificial intelligence and machine learning. Universities, research units, and a foundation are involved in its creation, with the City signing a letter of intent with them on January 25, 2024.
Poznań CityLab will develop solutions that support administrative processes and provide residents with modern digital services.
‘We want to create a space that will serve to verify ideas and test solutions based on emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data, the internet of things, and blockchain,’ says Michał Łakomski, the Mayor of Poznań’s plenipotentiary for smart city. ‘CityLab will perform many functions. It is to be a knowledge bank, a catalyst for change, and also a place providing inspiration, tools, and methods of action for the development of smart city projects for residents, the City, and our partners.’
CityLab will carry out initiatives such as an innovation laboratory, which will offer support in introducing and piloting digital projects, and in which widely available tools will be developed. An example could be the Open Data Platform or the Smart City Poznań application. In addition, there will be a space for conducting social consultations and the Poznań Welcome Center, a place for permanent and temporary exhibitions showing the potential of the City and CityLab partners.
Poznań CityLab will be located at the Poznań International Fair. The opening is planned for 2025.
From Cryptology to Smart City
On Thursday, at the Enigma Cipher Center, a letter of intent was signed regarding cooperation in the field of artificial intelligence and cybersecurity, including the development of CityLab. The signatories of the document are: the City of Poznań, the Artificial Intelligence Center of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, the Artificial Intelligence and Cybersecurity Center of Poznań University of Technology, Poznań Supercomputing and Networking Center, Łukasiewicz – Poznań Institute of Technology, and the In_Spire Foundation.
The goal of the cooperation is for Poznań to become a leading city in conducting digital transformation. As part of this, partners will jointly implement projects – including national or international ones – based on artificial intelligence, which can become a model for other cities. They will also seek innovative solutions based on the latest technologies.
The cooperation also includes jointly applying for external funds and education, by providing training and developing AI-related competencies for Poznań residents and institution employees. The importance of cybersecurity was also emphasized in the letter.
The date of signing the letter – January 25 – is not accidental. It is Cryptology Day, established in 2007 by the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań. It commemorates the anniversary of breaking the code of the German cipher machine Enigma, accomplished by Polish cryptologists, graduates of Poznań University – Marian Rejewski, Henryk Zygalski, and Jerzy Różycki. It was they who took the first steps in decrypting Enigma in the capital of Wielkopolska in the years 1929-1932.
