Collective Intelligence for Smart Cities begins with an overview of the fundamental issues and concepts of smart cities. Surveying the current state-of-the-art research in the field, the book delves deeply into key smart city developments such as health and well-being, transportation, safety, energy & environment, and sustainability. It also focuses on the role of IoT, cloud computing, and big data specifically in smart city development.
What ties these topics together is the book’s unique overarching focus on Collective Intelligence (CI). A concept for quantifying mass activity familiar to many social science and life science researchers, Collective Intelligence for Smart Cities explores how group decision-making emerges from the consensus of the collective, collaborative, and competitive activities of many individuals. The book concludes with an overview of future directions of research.
- Provides collective intelligence-based solutions to enhance smart city well-being
