Cities have a memory and interact with their neighbors

4 marzo 2015

Demographic changes in large cities depend on millions of individual decisions, but the population evolves depending on two factors: what ‘reminds’ them of their recent past and the existence of other urban areas around them. This is the proposal developed by a group of researchers through algorithms, which show how American cities have a 25-year-old memory and interact with others 200 km away while in the case of the Spain these values are 15 years and 80 km.
