I spoke at the Smart cities industry summit – speakers and it was a fascinating event .. rarely do I spend two whole days at an event.
Below I include my presentation.
In this talk, I extended the ideas I have been building on ..
Building on the idea of -
I previously proposed
But how exactly do we achieve this?
What we are working on is:
a) Initially, focusing on renewables and transportation
b) Providing a holistic view by combining two datasets – earth observation data and sensor data
c) Applying Big Data principles
d) Creating an ecosystem – sharing with other cities(we already have three cities interested in this)
e) Algorithms are real .. They take away the discussion from “What is a smart city?” to ‘Here is some code .. ‘ can you hack it?
f) Depending on the open source licence, we can include innovation i.e. cities can create their versions of the code and keep their modifications
I believe it would truly make a difference and create an ecosystem
