Smart Cities: IoT Technologies, Big Data Solutions, Cloud Platforms, and Cybersecurity Techniques Nowadays, we are seeing a host of powerful IoT technologies, Big Data Solutions, AI algorithms, Machine Learning models, and Deep Learning frameworks, Cloud storages, Cybersecurity aimed at replicating or replacing the human brain capabilities in computing and communication devices. Therefore, human is eager to leverage the most multi-faceted IoT-based solutions and Big Data technologies to develop, deploy and deliver next-generation smart buildings and smart city applications.

The book brings insight into the smart systems and offers emerging technologies and AI-based applications and implementation strategies. It includes current developments and future directions and covers the concept of the Smart Cities along with its ecosystem. It focuses on the mechanisms of proposing solutions along with architectural concepts, design principles, smart solutions, and intelligent prediction with visualization simulation for the Smart City Framework by focusing mainly on six areas of infrastructure that are based on entities: Big Data Solutions, IoT-based Technologies, Cloud Platforms, Cybersecurity Techniques, AI-centric AR/VR Techniques Data Analysis and Visualization, and including ICT Ecosystem for the development of the Smart City framework.

We really believe that the technologies and applications of the “Smart Cities: IoT Technologies, Big Data Solutions, Cloud Platforms, and Cybersecurity Techniques” book will favor the people's aspirations.


Smart Cities: IoT Technologies, Big Data Solutions, Cloud Platforms, and Cybersecurity Techniques book proceedings will be published by CRC Press, Taylor & Francis Group, Florida, USA
