In the presentation I will elaborate about key pillars of a smart city: - Connectivity = IoT, connected data, data sharing. - Intelligence = insight through AI and ML and analytics, ontologies. - Security = risk + cyber safety / security. A Smart City can be characterized as the integration of technologies empowering citizens and players to interact in a more convenient, efficient and sustainable way, with the overall objective to enhance citizen wellbeing and economic competitiveness. This presentation will focus on the stepping stones to get these building blocks together – elaborating on connectivity, intelligence and cyber security.
