Course description

Smart Cities

Since most of the world's population is presumed to live in large metropolitan urban areas, there is an urgent need to solve a variety of important issues ranging from transport to sanitation, to enhancing the effectiveness of commerce and education. Large-scale progress in big data, connectivity, and control algorithms has enabled a wide range of systems and solutions to be developed as part of "Smart City" projects.

The Smart Cities workshop explores the frameworks, systems, control mechanisms and technologies behind Smart City initiatives, including the ecosystems, opportunities, and the global community behind much of the progress. During this course, participants will have the opportunity to do the following:

  • Learn from case studies that illustrate and analyse the requirements, as well as the dangers (and associated safeguarding mechanisms)
  • Explore standardisation, benchmarking and the role of the different players within the various ecosystems
  • Examine the role and opportunities for leading and coordinating specific elements of the overall system
