Download e-book for kindle: Towards Cognitive Cities: Advances in Cognitive Computing by Edy Portmann, Matthias Finger

By Edy Portmann, Matthias Finger

This booklet introduces the readers to the recent thought of cognitive towns. It demonstrates why towns have to turn into cognitive and why as a result an idea of cognitive urban is required. It highlights the most construction blocks of cognitive towns and illustrates the concept that via quite a few situations. Following a concise introductory bankruptcy the booklet positive aspects 9 chapters illustrating a variety of facets and dimensions of cognitive towns. The common sense of its constitution proceeds from extra normal concerns to extra particular illustrations. All chapters provide a complete view of the several learn endeavours approximately cognitive towns and should support pave the best way for this new and cutting edge method of governing towns within the future.

With regards to ICT infrastructure, this means a network of sub systems, interconnected and integrated through open standards, shared infrastructure and common protocols. South Korea is probably most advanced in this regards. It has invested enormous public funds into ICT infrastructure and relaxed regulations to provide a competitive platform for telecommunication service providers. Today, Seoul has a free public Wi-Fi that offers the world’s fastest Internet speeds. South Korea however has not stopped there and has just announced the upgrade of its mobile infrastructure with the aim to increase its Internet speed by 1000 times.

For example, there may be individual public authorities, such as the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which coordinate the air and water transportation in the metropolitan region, but there is no overarching authority for governing the metropolitan area of New York [14]. The mismatch between the urbanized areas and jurisdictional boundaries often hinders procurement and implementation of new or upgrading of existing infrastructure to smarter or more cognitive systems. The second political challenge cities face is that, over the last century, they have become increasingly organized along functional structures with sector-specific agencies and city departments providing individual public services.

Meeting the requirement for enhanced outcomes in terms of quality of life on the one hand and greater resilience (successful adaptation to fast and slow moving shocks and stressors) on the other, necessitates ever greater sophistication of governance. To tackle these urban challenges, technological solutions are being increasingly promoted under buzzwords such as ‘smart cities’, ‘digital cities’, ‘intelligent cities’, or—the latest addition to the debate—‘cognitive cities’. Some [1, 12] argue that the digital revolution may transform our lives in the same way the industrial revolution has over the past two centuries.
