FIA Dublin Workshop: Sensing Smart Cities

Social Networks, IoT and Cognition as enabling technologies for Smart Cities

May 7th, 2013, 09:30 - 12:30, Dublin, Ireland

The SMART project is organizing a workshop at the Future Internet Assembly (FIA) conference, exploring the role of social media, IoT and cognitive technologies as essential enablers of emerging ICT-services in smart cities, while also unveiling the trend of combining them in the Cloud.

The workshop will present and discuss results, lessons learned and requirements coming out from recent and on-going (EC co-funded) projects, which intend to exploit, deploy and fully leverage those technologies in smart cities contexts.
