The present work for the Smart City Ontology (SCO 2.0) continues the efforts that started in 2015, integrates and re-uses many entities (classes, object properties, data properties) of the initial version, but also has some important differences. The motivation for continuing the work on the smart city ontology has been the interest of the smart city community for an ontology of the smart city, and the many demands that we have received for providing the owl file of the SCO 1.0 to be used in other experiments related to smart cities.
The workshop “Smart Cities digital transformation and digital competences for smart cities’ personnel” will take place on Wednesday, 3 June 2020, 10:30 -14:30 (EEST – Athens time). It is organised in the framework of the DEVOPS project, which aims to close the gap between today’s and future’s skills demand of the municipal workforce in smart cities.
In recent days we have seen a series of initiatives to combat the pandemic with data, web platforms for research sharing, and models for simulation and forecasting. But how successful can these efforts be? What digital systems can strengthen and accelerate research and innovation in various fields of science and technology?
Unprecedented circumstances with Covid-19 make the need for mission-driven research to be more urgent, mobilizing research labs to discover drugs and vaccines, squeezing the usual timeline for such discoveries and bypassing standard operating rules. But what is the balance between mission rules and human ingenuity?
The Anglia Ruskin University, School of Engineering and the Built Environment at Chelmsford UK opened a position for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow who will work with my colleague Prof. Maria Vogiatzaki.
Two new books based on URENIO Research projects and scientific collaboration are under publication.
Smart Cities and Connected Intelligence is about digital and cyber-physical platforms that enable people, institutions and machines to connect, collaborate and resolve complex problems of the 21st century. Internet and world-wide-web platforms, big data analytics, software applications, social media and civic technologies, allow for the creation of smart ecosystems in which connected intelligence emerges and disruptive, social, and eco-innovation flourish.
The focus of the book is on three grand challenges that matter for any territory, no matter where it is located: (a) smart growth, a path that more and more cities
