The Smart City concept is based on the use of the digital technology and social innovation to improve the efficiency and safety of urban systems. Through large-scale monitoring of built environment, unbuilt environment as well as urban services and practices, it provides large data about urban systems. Analysis of these data using advanced tools such as Big-Data and Artificial intelligence enhances our understanding of the real behavior of urban systems as well as users and their interaction during “normal” events and urban disasters. It helps also to develop forecasting model for urban systems and to use these models to improve the efficiency and safety of urban systems, which constitute the basis for the development of sustainable and resilient cities.
The lecture includes three parts: The first part proposes to revisit urban challenges with particular focus on sustainability and resiliency and then to figure out research and developments needs to meet these challenges. The second part presents the Smart City concept and lessons learned from some projects, with focus on successes and failures in smart city implementation. The final part discusses how the Smart City concept could help to improve the resilience and sustainability of urban systems and discusses some issues to guarantee its successful implementation.
