Abstract

Sustainable rural planning is the environmentally friendly issue worldwide. Taiwanese government has enacted the “Rural Regeneration Act” to direct sustainable development in Taiwanese rural areas. ‘Lun’ is a sort of landscape arranged on coastal plain in westernside of Taiwan, which was formed over time by natural waterway and wind power. Some literatures have pointed out that the features of Lun can provide habitats for many species, and form protective barriers to against both winter monsoon and powerful sea-wind. Some sorts of field-investigation literatures have described that, many rural village developments around coastal regions in Taiwan have obviously been affected by the configurations of Lun. To clarify this relationship is the main purpose in this paper. Through using several AI (Artificial Intelligence) methods can establish simulation model for constructing the relationship between the environmental configuration of Lun and some factors about the village developing. The target village in this paper is Hsiao-Jen community, Mailiao Township, Yunlin County, Taiwan. There has plenty of Lun in different sizes. The main AI method applied in this paper is ANN (Artificial Neural Network). ANN can analyze environmental factors and build simulation model. Other technique about recording data and demonstrating experimental simulation results is GIS (Geographic Information System) which based on CA (Cellular Automata) formation.

The Application of Artificial Intelligence Methods in Sustainable Rural Planning

Sustainable rural planning is the environmentally friendly issue worldwide. Taiwanese government has enacted the “Rural Regeneration Act” to direct sustainable development in Taiwanese rural areas. ‘Lun’ is a sort of landscape arranged on coastal plain in westernside of Taiwan, which was formed over time by natural waterway and wind power. Some literatures have pointed out that the features of Lun can provide habitats for many species, and form protective barriers to against both winter monsoon and powerful sea-wind. Some sorts of field-investigation literatures have described that, many rural village developments around coastal regions in Taiwan have obviously been affected by the configurations of Lun. To clarify this relationship is the main purpose in this paper. Through using several AI (Artificial Intelligence) methods can establish simulation model for constructing the relationship between the environmental configuration of Lun and some factors about the village developing. The target village in this paper is Hsiao-Jen community, Mailiao Township, Yunlin County, Taiwan. There has plenty of Lun in different sizes. The main AI method applied in this paper is ANN (Artificial Neural Network). ANN can analyze environmental factors and build simulation model. Other technique about recording data and demonstrating experimental simulation results is GIS (Geographic Information System) which based on CA (Cellular Automata) formation.
