Future Smart Cities• Digital Agenda for Europe and Going Local• Green & Digital• Open Innovation, Open Data & Open Networks• Future Internet enabled Smart Cities • Internet of Things + Cloud + Open Data +
Urban Open Systems• Smart Cities: – Smart: innovation, invention & entrepreneurship – Inclusive: multiple deprivation & scale of social exclusion in urban areas – Sustainable: cities generate 75%+ of emissions = problem & solution• Cities as engines of regional growth = Smart Regions – Manchester City Region – MCR = 5% of national economy, 40% of regional economy – City Region = larger economic unit than Wales, Northern Ireland or North East of England• Urban Open Systems = People + Open Data + Co-production – “From Human Factors to Human Actors” Bannon, J Liam. 1991. “The Role of Psychology and Human-Computer Interaction Studies in System Design”.
Critical Infrastructures• Green, Mobile & Digital• Digital as the new real estate of the 21st century• UK as world leader in creativity and content – way behind in connectivity• MCR is 2nd largest digital & creative sector in UK• Only globally connected Internet Exchange outside of London• Digital Hub Network: connecting key sites via the Metrolink tram network• Creating transformational digital infrastructure • open access networks – fibre + wireless • digital hubs – where networks interconnect • backbone networks – build your own networks• Infinite Bandwidth, Zero Latency (IBZL)
Global connectivity • UK less than 1% (not actually ‘on the map’) • Domestic broadband is cheap, widely accessible but slow (20 Mbps down, 2 Mbps up) • High speed connectivity (100 Mbps+) is very expensive, often more than €500 per month • Difficult for new businesses to enter the market

Fibre to the People – key attributes• Fully point-to-point• Fully open to the passive layer• Fully open co-location• Direct connection to carrier neutral Internet Exchange• A ‘Free Trade Fibre’ Enterprise Network to encourage investment: – open innovation ‘Living Lab’ test-bed for new applications – maximum technical flexibility for property owners and developers to build their own networks and connect – trialling new business models including shared passive infrastructure and local patchwork – Potential to scale up re-using public assets, especially the roll-out of the tram network and other transport corridors
Infrastructure for MobilityThe £1.5bn GM Transport Fund has funded Metrolink to Chorlton with further extensions to East Manchester, Wythenshawe and the Airport underway
Smart, inclusive & sustainable growth• Manchester City Region – low carbon economic area for the built environment• Future Cities Technology Innovation Centre• Green procurement framework• Low carbon investment model - generate economic opportunities - ensure skills & training matches ambition - underpin with innovative investment models• Partnership commitment - partners include Siemens, Arup, universities, SME networks, voluntary & community sector
Manchester Living Lab & SMARTiP project• Test-bed smart environments network along Corridor• Affordable and accessible sensors including DIY (Arduinos)• Potential for wearables (clothes, bikes etc.) and micro-production• Links to Corridor fibre and wireless networks• Future links to transport network and GM wide deployment
‘Geek’ Power! Entrepreneurs + InnovatorsManchester Digital Lab + OmniversityMadLab• Creativity• Innovation• DiversityStimulating:• new ideas• new business• new skills• new jobs
Smart City development - future vision:• Using Future Internet to transform the way we live and work • more flexible ways and locations of working: smart mobility, smart environments, smart learning• Co-designing and co-producing services for ourselves and others • new services being designed and delivered by users, e.g. e-health and telecare services• Enabling our environments to be greener, cleaner and healthier • smart buildings, smart energy, low-carbon neighbourhoods• Making smart cities more democratic, resilient and attractive • social networking to promote civic engagement• Generating and celebrating creativity, innovation and diversity • arts and culture linked to technology supporting jobs and skills
