Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning: The Brain of a Smart City

August 16, 2019 / SUSAN MORROW

Another post in my series on smart cities and privacy. This continues from the previous post Smart City Data: A Convoluted Web.The data collected by sensors and IoT devices in the smart city have to, somehow, be used. Information can provide insights to spot patterns and trends. If you have enough of it, aka big data, you can get a pretty accurate picture of whatever it is you’re exploring. For example, smart grids, with enough information at hand, can use data to determine peaks and troughs in electricity need and to then adjust output. This optimizes the use of energy, helping in the drive to sustainability.
