TIE - Territorial Intelligence Engineering

One of the major challenges for the countries of the 21th century, is to increase their territorial management and their associated economy in the current context of new technologies. Multi-scale decision making are today needed to improve the management of these countries developments within international trade and the associated international networks. The economical issues are to be able to develop sustainable territorial equipments for the various networks on which their development are based, like communications networks or transportation networks.

Information and Communication Technologies are today able to deal with efficient multi-scale decision support systems. These technological tools have to integrate the complexity of the systems involved in the three main categories: economical, social and environmental ones. They have to be able to model and simulate the major fluxes dealing with such developments: good fluxes but also economical fluxes and informational fluxes. Complex geopolitical management of our current world needs such numerical and intelligent assistance.

Territorial intelligence in the scientific context of complex system modeling needs to be involved and to propose adaptive processes in order to manage the complex networks of the economical development. Territorial intelligence has its roots in new technologies which provide tools to extract information from the real world (like sensor networks) and in real time processes. New technologies concern also distributed computer networks modeling such complex systems in order to better understand the multi-scale interactions as well as the multi-objective decision. For example, for a territory, integrating several scales of organization (regions, cities, cultural or commercial centers), all of them being intensively connected, the planning issues is to optimize the goods fluxes and associated informational fluxes, in order to produce a stable and sustainable development.
