Book Description :

Cut through the hype surrounding Smart Cities. This book looks at the facts on the ground and realities, coming to a more adequate understanding of where technology can and cannot help in a city context, specifically pulling on insights gained from smart city initiatives in New York, Chicago, Amsterdam and Copenhagen. Currently, the concept of Smart Cities is rightfully touted as a transformative power in our lives. The use of Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and Blockchain are some of the most hyped technologies that promise to bring about significant changes to how we live and manage our cities. While some isolated solutions have been implemented with great success and impact, the full potential of smart cities have so far not been realized. Practical realities often interfere, bringing initiatives to a screeching halt or stopping them before they even start. By better understanding the practical realities of a city we may be able to better make use of technology to make smarter cities. To that end end, this book provides a number of practical guidelines on how to make cities smarter with the aid of technology. You'll also dive into the practical understanding of managing and securing thousands, possibly millions, of devices and the accompanying data. Demystifying Smart Cities evaluates how technology can behave in a more intelligent way and how producing novel solutions can pose problems of their own. What You'll Learn Practical issues and challenges of managing thousands and millions of IoT devices in a city The different types of city data and how to manage and secure it The possibilities of utilizing AI into a city (and how it differs from working with the private sector) Examples of how to make cities smarter with technology Who This Book Is For Primarily for those already familiar with the hype of smart city technologies but not the details of its implementation, along with technologists interested in learning how city government works when integrating technology. Also, people working for smart city vendors, especially sales people and product managers who need to understand their target market.

Book Description :

A good management strategy must be expected to mitigate the dangerous consequences of rapid urbanization that modern society, the economy, and the environment may face. Sustainable smart cities include established structures, infrastructures, communities, institutions, and individuals. On the other hand, this book also deals with energy consumption. Such energy consumption leads to a rapid depletion of energy resources, an increased need for building maintenance, an improvised comfortable lifestyle, and an increase in time spent on building construction. A sustainable building mainly explains the renewable sources used for construction, which helps the structure withstand atmospheric changes. Currently, all countries are looking for ecological materials, that is, renewable plant materials such as straw and clay bricks, wood from forests certified for sustainable management, recycled materials, and other non-toxic, reusable and renewable products. For sustainable and durable construction, energy efficiency is an urgent problem, and researchers are currently actively involved in this area. This book will provide an in-depth analysis of design technologies that lay a solid foundation for sustainable buildings. The book also highlights smart automation technologies that help save energy, as well as various performance indicators needed to make construction easier. The book aims to create a strong research community, to have a deep understanding and the latest knowledge in the field of energy and comfort, to offer solid ideas in the nearby future for sustainable and resilient buildings. These buildings will help the city grow as a smart city. The smart city has also focused on low energy consumption, renewable energy, and small carbon footprints. To find the optimal use of energy resources, researchers must study optimization methods.
