AI-Centric Smart City Ecosystem: Technologies, Design and Implementation In recent years, the concept of smart cities is rapidly developing in urban areas which enhances the significant living utilities to the human. But, unlike several other engineering disciplines, the smart city ecosystem is lacking the well-defined design principles, embedded emerging technologies, smart applications and development strategies. So, this edited book will present various concepts in the design and development of the smart cities as well as methodologies and solutions involved in designing contemporary infrastructure for building the smart cities around the world.

The main aims of this book are to serve the needs of the IT engineers, industrial engineers, professionals, researchers, master, and doctoral students studying emerging technologies in the smart city ecosystem by focusing mainly on six areas of infrastructure that are base entities: IoT-based Solutions, AI-Centric Control Systems, Smart Systems, CyberSecurity Mechanism, Data Science, and including Cloud Computing for the development of the Smart City ecosystem.

We really believe that the technologies and applications of the “AI-Centric Smart City Ecosystem: Technologies, Design and Implementation” book will favor the people's aspirations.

List of Topics:

This book targets a mixed audience of students, engineers, researchers, academics and professionals from different communities to share and contribute new ideas, methodologies, technologies, approaches, models, frameworks, theories and practices to resolve the challenging issues associated with the leveraging of combating emerging technologies and smart solutions with AI-centric solutions for developing a smart city ecosystem.
