IoT in Community Ecosystems

  • 22 Mar 2018
  • 6:15 PM - 8:30 PM
  • Cisco Innovation Centre - downtown Toronto

What is the foundation for ‘smart’ in smart communities, and who is part of the intelligent community? Increasingly, ‘intelligence’ is delivered through the interconnection of an instrumented physical world – IoT – and the sharing of digital information throughout an ecosystem consisting of multiple stakeholders who each play a role in the creation of economic, social or environmental benefit in a region. In research led by InsightaaS’s Mary Allen, the IoT Coalition Canada has focused on IoT as the driving force behind the development of intelligent community ecosystems that “combine smart connectivity with information sharing to unleash new potential in environmental standards, operational management and in the creation of new citizen services." Successful roll-out of intelligent systems requires that Canadian urban managers develop expertise in identifying new sources of business value and new business cases, documenting service delivery and infrastructure requirements and sourcing strategies, as well as process management practices that includes metrics and milestones which are aligned with IoT realities. In these activities, a key requirement is engagement of a broader community that can deliver the ‘bottoms up’ innovation that will accelerate IoT advance.

In this Meetup, Mary will lead a panel of IoT experts as they explore design and best practice planning aimed at delivering “IoValue” in community ecosystems, encouraging attendees to ask questions and share individual perspectives, and to network with peers who are also interested in what the IoT future holds for our communities!
