Special Issue "Understanding and Personalising Smart City Services Using Big Data and Machine Learning"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2021).
The “smart city” concept has been proposed to make cities more efficient through the increased use of intelligent technology. For many years, the smart city concept has been narrowly practiced using information technologies to optimize the efficiency of the city. Though more efficient cities can produce economic benefits and conveniences for urban residents, cities are not just machines and good life quality is not identical to efficiency. More efficient cities may lead to people being vulnerable to public health threats, disasters, and personal privacy violations and could also be less environmentally friendly.
Smart cities should not just be efficient and intelligent but more human-centered. This Special Issue encourages research using urban big data, machine learning, urban analytics, and network analysis to provide more human-centered solutions for building more human-friendly and human-centered city intelligence. We invite you to submit work on the most recent advancements in (but not limited to) the following topics:
- Urban big data and urban analytics
- Urban sensing methods
- Urban environment health
- Urban analytics for environmental sustainability
- Ethnics of urban big data
- Human-centered urban computing
- Energy and sustainability
- Sustainable transportation
- Intelligent building system for urban sustainability
- Privacy protection
