Short Outline
Proposed paper is aimed to bring a light to phenomena of consequent evolving, multiplication and space concentration of land-use alteration modes through spontaneous «learning» on the basis of various data, stored in information networks (mass-media, Internet, advertisement, etc.).
Such a phenomena is to be typical mainly in big cities with large territory and population, where a competition between different social, cultural and economic groups is very strong and an equilibrium between them may not be much stable. Besides there are at list two interdependent processes, that can make this instability even more serious: differentiation both of supply and demand of urban space due to application of new technologies (not only information ones but transportation, engineering and others). The point is that «infosphere» can spontaneously transform that instability in structural shifts by streamlining previously disconnected efforts to transform urban space in one focus. In some way it’s the same effect as a behaviour of the crowd sudenly mooving one way. It arises at least two problems: consequences of that rarely fit a city plan; retrieval and dissemination of information is practically out of control.
In a report the following materials are to be presented:
-examples of spontaneous evolution of new urban patterns in Moscow;
-analysis of their gradual localization and concentration in specific areas;
-possible ways of application of GIS and neurosystems analysis for cognition and simulation of land use patterns alteration modes based on «infosphere» principles.
That theme is a part of a thesis and likely to suit program of Parallel Session ¹3.
An ''infosphere''. - a new dense virtual space full of data will confront a planner with a huge, constantly changing, coming on-line and never ending information flux. Thus the long story of adaptation of planning to development will have no choice to continue through optimization of hierarchical linear decision-making of present time.
