Smart cities are the new relevant entities in urban planning concept that are economically, socially, ecologically, politically relevant and, of course, culturally relevant as well. A strong urban infrastructure, service management layout aims to create a digital blueprint which is a very backbone of the smart cities. AI short for Artificial intelligence has been under development since 1950´s with the availability of rapid information, and communication data collection. AI is said to be the biggest disruptor of all times; Thus, AI market has grown substantially over the last decade and it´s expected to grow 20% annually over the next few years (Liu, 2020). AI may even evoke many different opinions and science fiction images in us. Some may perceive AI as a threat, and some may fear that artificial intelligence will take their jobs in the future. Threat images may have been painted in people’s minds because not enough is simply known about AI, as well as the benefits that mankind can achieve with the solution to many health, economic, and security problems in future smart cities. The variety of integration of different innovations that serve humankind in smart cities provides another level of support for its users while boosting the socio-economic development of any city into a competitive one. The smart cities of tomorrow work as a collected layers of information matrix with complex capacity of innovations controlled by main information, and communication technology known as (ICT)´s. To offer high-quality services system, smart cities aim to create sustainable, cost-efficient, and safe environments with the help of AI to augment shortages in a growing city. In this paper we will discuss AI´s role in the improvement of service system for high quality living standard and social perspective of cities that we are seeing today. This paper´s objective is to highlight how AI will impact urban planning in governmental aspect, and over all planning profession? How can AI be benefited to ensure equitable outcome for service management in smart cities? This paper explains the processes of planning, maintaining, and operating in urban infrastructure level in smart cities. Namely, first, the distinction of service system that are being provided based on performance of urban infrastructure systems. Secondly, the emerging role of the information and communication technologies known as ICT´s that has become known as digital blueprint for smart cities. Lastly, the important steps in managerial and governments consideration which are necessary to unleash the potential ability of AI in smart cities.
