A Holistic Vision of Sustainable Smart Cities

Thursday, August 11, 2022 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Join the IEEE Toronto ComSoc Chapter for this in-person talk by Dr. Lina Bariah, from the Technology Innovation Institute, on “A Holistic Vision of Sustainable Smart Cities” !
Since the evolution of the smart city concept, the way we are living our everyday life has been revolving toward integrating intelligence in every aspect of our lives, spanning from automated systems, smart homes, smart buildings and factories, to intelligent transportation systems and intelligent retail. While this paradigm has motivated the emergence of novel technological trends, in order to meet its demanding requirements, several technologies have played a fundamental role in enabling the smart city concept, such as internet-of-things (IoT), sensing, machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI), and cloud and edge computing, to name a few. Along the way, wireless network generations have fundamentally participated in maturing the paradigm of smart city, which will continue to grow with the aim to realize pervasive user-centric applications supported by ubiquitous intelligence. This means, AI is anticipated to be the fuel for every aspect in smart cities.
This talk will explore the opportunities offered by wireless networks in smart city applications, and the role of AI as the main orchestrator.
