Smart meters for the cutting edge smart cities

Different government agencies from all over the world are transforming their cities into smart cities. Because of the increasing pollution levels, the world environment is facing multiple challenges, and global warming is one of them. The main reason for this increase in temperature of the globe is the release of ever-increasing greenhouse gases. Burning the fossil fuels to meet the energy requirements is being considered as the primary reason for the global warming and the toxic elements in the air.

To fight this global problem, a huge amount of funds has been allocated by all the developed and the developing countries in the recent past. In addition, most of the city planners are working towards attaining the dream of shifting towards 100% sustainable energy by 2020. With the new innovations, the smart meter is one of the efficient equipment that can help in the effective management of energy flow.

As per the implementation plan, the smart cities will have all kind of connectivity features and to attain that, a lot of energy is needed. The best part about these smart cities is, all the energy will be collected from the renewable green energy sources. With the view of empowering the entire city with green energy, an effective management of energy is required to prevent the shortage of energy. In order to reduce the wastage of energy, the ‘smart meters’ can be used to keep a track of the energy utilization.

Fashion Revolution With Biodegradable Textile

Pollution is the major problem all over the world. There are many industries that contribute to this pollution. But do you know that the clothes that you wear are one of the biggest reasons for the growing pollution? Yes, you heard it right. According to reports, the fashion industry holds the second place for being the most polluting industry in the world. Research says, 20% of global waste is generated from the fashion industry. Along with this, the industry is also responsible for 10% of global carbon dioxide emission which is extremely harmful to the living creatures. However, after realising how much pollution this industry is causing, experts are trying to come up with the sustainable solutions. Scientists all over the world are working extensively to decrease the pollution level generated from the fashion industry.

Zero Waste Management – Transforming Cities Into Smart Cities

Take a pause from your busy life and look at our planet’s incredible sustainable natural cycle. Have you ever given a thought that our planet wouldn’t have lived billions of years without this natural cycle where the excretion of one living species tends to be another’s food – a natural zero waste management system.

What Kind of Smart City Challenges Could be Solved by Artificial Intelligence

The smart city challenges are not a challenge for AI…but for us’.

From the day one, human civilisation has always tried to seek out ways that could make our life better and better each day by overcoming the challenges that come by. We always look for new ideas, innovations, and strategies that could augment our existence as effectively as possible – as they say, the sky’s the limit.

And even with artificial intelligence, it’s the same – smart city challenges are easy for AI to be accomplished but how it does accomplish is also important. The path chosen to reach the destination is more important than the destination itself. How easily can AI solve smart city challenges and how AI poses a challenge for the smart cities in future is discussed ahead.

Trendsetting Role Of Artificial Intelligence – People And The Cities

Artificial intelligence is setting a never-ending trend in the society. How different was the world a few decades back and how lifestyle has completely changed today is all due to artificial intelligence.

Whether you are using social media Facebook or hiring an Uber taxi through your smartphone, all is handled by AI. In fact, when you were browsing few words of this article on google search engine it was AI who optimised your search. Here we are actually talking about the weak AI which was discussed in the previous article. Though this is the earliest form of AI it has a crucial role to perform in the development of cities and its people.

How the machine intelligence is being put to use and how it should be used is an interesting chapter to learn.

Artificial Intelligence – The Evolving Brain Of Smart Cities

The term ‘Artificial Intelligence’ was coined by John McCarthy in 1956 while demonstrating the first operating AI program at Carnegie Mellon University. And due to the fact, he is acknowledged as the ‘father of AI’. According to him, artificial intelligence is, “The science and engineering of making intelligent machines, especially intelligent computer programs”.
