The Smart City series of lectures span the fundamental ideas, visions and the technologies related to the development of services for the Smart City (or Society) and the Internet of Things.
Before building a Smart City, we must agree on what a Smart City is, or could be. This lecture presents a concrete vision for what a Smart City is. We will work through some immediate conclusions. This will help us define some basic requirements on architecture and infrastructure, vital to create a scalable and resilient Smart City. With a focus on decentralized and federated architectures, new standardization efforts are presented that provide a basis for interoperability in the Smart City.
