INVESTING IN OUR CITIES FUTURE

RETHINKING RESILIENT CITIES

Cities are complex ecosystems and spaces of exchange. Emerging technologies and data processing tools, such as self-configurable Sensor Networks, other Internet of Things technologies, Next Generation Mobile and Broadcasting platforms, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence are transforming the cities that we live in, and the way we live in them.

The hyper-connected digital landscape means that urban residents live in a world where they don’t just seek information, they are information. Understanding the confluence of trends and the evolving relationship between people, sensors and data is key to designing for resilience in an equitable way.

The Smart Cities model, now a widely adopted approach, uses information technology (IT) to harness open and shared data to better understand local vulnerabilities and inform development decisions as well as the operation of physical and service infrastructure.

This research project will explore how the Smart City model can be used in pre-event recovery planning and post-event response and recovery operations The research is guided by three high-level components.

They are: 

DATA
SENSORS
PEOPLE
