My talk at the IEEE International Conference on Smart Mobility, KAUST, Saudi Arabia, 19 -21 March 2023, “Smart city ecosystems organising connected intelligence: Lessons from Mobility as a Service”.
The talk presents the latest work from URENIO Research on smart cities, connected intelligence, and innovation. There is plenty of evidence that the smart city is the dominant planning and development paradigm for cities in the 21st century. In our view, smart city ecosystems are the fundamental components of smart cities. They generate connected intelligence, networking human, collective, and machine intelligence, which in turn brings system-level changes to their routines, activities, and structure.
We focus on the MaaS ecosystem, which in relation to autonomous vehicles, is expected to bring the most radical changes to the organization of cities in the coming years, freeing cities from cars and pollution. It includes 4 sections. Section 1, provides an overview of the smart city paradigm and its founding premises. In Section 2, we discuss the components of connected intelligence and their binary couplings, outlining key features of human, collective, and machine intelligence. Section 3, presents a survey on connected intelligence in the MaaS ecosystem, which identifies forms of binary coupling in critical decisions for setting up MaaS. Finally, in Section 4, we discuss how a connected intelligence perspective can guide innovation in the MaaS ecosystem.
