With the advent of the Fourth industrial revolution, a series of emerging technologies, such as big data, artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IOT), augmented reality (AR), provide new opportunities for studying cities and expanding their research breadth and depth. In addition, these disruptive technologies cast profound impacts on urban space and social life, and substantially change the research object of urban research. Under such background, the New City Science rises in response to the proper time and condition, and would revitalize the traditional urban sciences.
