Deep Learning Applications for Smart Cities
Deep Learning is a new and exciting set of technologies with potential applications to many areas - including Smart cities, However, Deep Learning technologies are rapidly evolving. This paper first explores the basics of Deep Learning technologies and then explores how they apply to Smart cities. Unlike most papers on this subject, we do not take an academic view. Instead we explore the latest developments of Deep Learning and extrapolate how they could apply to future cities over the next 5 to 10 years. The paper takes a multi-disciplinary approach focusing on the rapid evolution of Deep Learning technologies and their implication for Smart cities.
Ajit’s work involves applying machine learning techniques to complex problems in the IoT (Internet of Things) and Telecoms domains. His research is based on two courses taught by Ajit – Big Data for Telecoms(Oxford University) and the citysciences program (UPM –Technical University of Madrid).
His latest book is included as a course book at Stanford University for Data Science for Internet of Things. Ajit is also writing a paper on Deep Learning applications for Smart cities. In 2015, Ajit was included in 16 Great Data Science bloggers on Data Science Central, Top 100 blogs on KDnuggets and Top 50 people to follow on Twitter by IoT central for IoT. In 2009, Ajit was nominated to the World Economic Forum’s ‘Future of the Internet’ council. In 2011, he was nominated to the World Smart Capital program (Amsterdam). Ajit moderates/chairs Oxford University’s Next generation mobile applications panel. In 2012, he was nominated to the board of Connected Liverpool – Resilient Liverpool programs – based in the city of Liverpool for their Smart city vision. Ajit has been involved in IoT based roles for the webinos project (EU funded Fp7 project). Ajit has also been an advisor to the European Internet Foundation on Technology and Policy issues since 2009 and is the co-author of ‘The Digital World in 2030′. He is also involved in creating a community around the issues in this report in the Tech/Policy space. Since May 2005, he has founded and run the OpenGardens blog which is widely respected in the mobile/telecoms industry.
