“Smartness”, which underpins smart cities and societies, is defined by our ability to engage with our environments, analyse them, and make decisions, all in a timely manner. We are witnessing a rapid evolution, rather a transformation, of our societies. Novel solutions are being developed and adopted in work and life, benefitting from the growing ability to monitor and analyse our environments in near real time. A range of devices and technologies are being used for monitoring purposes including the Internet of Things (IoT), GPS, cameras, RFIDs, smartphones, smartwatches, other smart wearables, and social media. These devices produce diverse data that are analysed using artificial intelligence (AI) and other computational intelligence methods and used for decision-making purposes. While significant advances have been made in developing smart applications and technologies, a systematic effort to define and develop “smartness” is missing. An investigation into the theoretical and technological foundations of this “smartness” can help systemise and mass-produce technologies for autonomous production and operations of smart environments. This particular Special Issue focusses on IoT with investigations into topics such as bringing “smartness” to the IoT layer using technologies including cloud, fog and edge computing, high-performance computing (HPC), big data, blockchain, and/or AI.Prof. Dr. Rashid Mehmood

Title: Intelligence shaping the future of cities and regions

Abstract: In this paper on intelligence and the digital transformation of cities and regions, we discuss how different forms of intelligence influence bottom-up processes of formation and planning of cities and regions. Based on literature and case studies, we examine how human intelligence using data analytics, collective intelligence deriving from crowdsourcing platforms, artificial intelligence enabling forecasting from IoT and sensor data, and connected intelligence bringing all these forms of intelligence together, give rise to a new generation of city planning projects that optimise user behaviour, introduce a new logic to environmental sustainability, and guide cities towards zero objectives (zero CO2, zero waste, zero vision severe traffic accidents).
