Keynote Title: IoT, Big Data & Smart Cities - The Untold Story
Keynote Lecturer: Mischa Dohler
Keynote Chair: Ingemar Cox
Presented on: 11/02/2015, ESEO, Angers, Loire Valley, France
Abstract: Based on my TEDx talk, this keynote will challenge some established hypes around smart cities but also outline opportunities and challenges for the coming years. From the many possible angles, I will focus on the urban Internet of Things (IoT), its underlying technologies, the resulting Open Data and Big Data opportunities, and surprising insights into how citizen perceive their Smart City. I will argue that we are still far off an “Internet” of things, mainly due to mistakes committed in the technology but also business developments over the past decade. I will then expose major research and design challenges which need to be addressed to facilitate a truly connected cyber-physical world, including issues related to Big Data, Open Data and Privacy. This talk is inspired by the numerous issues I have come across with when actually trying to facilitate smarter cities through Worldsensing. Along with the untold challenges, I will outline some viable steps to address these in the hope to facilitate the emergence of truly smart cities.
