Welcome to another exciting concept in our course – big data and smart cities. Here we will be discussing smart cities in more detail while watching a lecture including videos of some cities that have implemented some smart city technology approaches. So what is a smart city? Even today, there’s no agreed definition. One thing that’s really clear about smart cities is they’re very specific to a city. The problems we have in one city will be different than in another. Although the categories are similar, how we approach them, the extent of the issue, and the solutions are going to be very specific to each individual city.
Cities are changing rapidly—growing in size and density, creating more waste, and using more resources. To solve the problems these pressures create, city governments need to think different. Smart cities need to use 21st century thinking and technology to enable a better quality of life for their citizens.
Please watch the video lecture, read the Big IoT and Social Networking for Smart Cities article, and complete the research paper (to be submitted prior to Sunday for credit with no plagiarism score(SafeAssign)).
This week’s reading centered around how Big Data analytics can be used with Smart Cities. This is exciting and can provide many benefits to individuals as well as organizations. For this week’s research assignment, you are to search the Internet for other uses of Big Data in RADICAL platforms. Please pick an organization or two and discuss the usage of big data in RADICAL platforms including how big data analytics is used in those situations as well as with Smart Cities. Be sure to use the UC Library for scholarly research. Google Scholar is the 2nd best option to use for research.
