Artificial Intelligence of Things for Smart Cities

June 24 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Abstract: Cities worldwide are transitioning quickly towards a low-carbon environment, high quality of living, and resource-efficient economy. Artificial Intelligence of Things (IoT) is a combination of Artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) to enable autonomous decision-making, data analytics, and system optimization. This talk will share our experiences on AIoT for smart cities. The first work is called Green IoT, which provides artificial intelligence and open data for sustainable city development. In this work, we developed an intelligent IoT system for air pollution monitoring in Uppsala, Sweden. The second work, called Smart Water Auditing, uses IoT and machine learning to provide insights into how much water is consumed in different domestic use categories. It aims to reduce water consumption and raise awareness of people's water consumption habits. This talk will present our AIoT system designs, machine learning algorithms, implementation, and experimental results in Hong Kong and Sweden.
