Internet of Concrete – Urban Evolution

Today at TechDays I held a session on Internet of thins and what it means for cities. I argued that sensors are easy to deploy with the existing infrastructure, that data are easy to gather using cloud services and that cities will turn this from raw data to information products that they can use and sell.

During the talk I promised to link the research and here they are:

Accenture Research on Smart Cities

Microsoft CityNext

City Protocol

I will write a separate blog post outlining my own conclusions and predictions.
