RETHINKING RESILIENT CITIES
SMART RESILIENT CITIES
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.
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 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 themes.
