Internet of Things: the Achilles heel of the smart city

The Internet of Things (IoT) by allowing the sensors’ integration represents the backbone of cities that can become smart ones by multiplying sources of information.  In 2017, already 11.2 billion objects such as infrastructures, roads, street lightings, electricity, water distribution networks or transports were connected ... from simple monitoring to predictive maintenance, scopes of application are numerous  In cities-wide, those thousands of connected devices transmit small amounts of data through low-speed networks in...

How EDF tests IoT technologies

EDF is working with Nokia to test IoT technologies in its R & D laboratories in Ile-de-France. His various professions also lead a work on big data. EDF is slowly but surely moving towards the Internet of Things. After carrying out a general interest study on the subject for all of the group's businesses in 2015, the energy company's R & D division began a more concrete testing phase at the end of 2017. It has teamed up with Nokia to evaluate the use of IoT technologies in an industrial environment. "We want to... [Lire la suite]

Creating smart city visions of the future

The concept of smart city visions is advancing across the globe. But what will they look like and how will they work? Rohit Talwar, Steve Wells and Alexandra Whittington of Fast Future explore the possibilities The city of the future is a symbol of progress. The sci-fi vision of the future city with sleek skyscrapers and flying cars has started to give way to a more plausible, human, practical and green image known as the smart city. While smart city visions differ, at their heart is the notion that in the coming decades, the... [Lire la suite]

Difference between Machine Learning, Data Science, AI, Deep Learning, and Statistics

In this article, I clarify the various roles of the data scientist, and how data science compares and overlaps with related fields such as machine learning, deep learning, AI, statistics, IoT, operations research, and applied mathematics. As data science is a broad discipline, I start by describing the different types of data scientists that one may encounter in any business setting: you might even discover that you are a data scientist yourself, without knowing it. As in any scientific discipline, data scientists may borrow... [Lire la suite]

Big Data and smart cities : the sacred union

The figures speak for themselves : today, 54 % of the population live in urban area. In 2050, more than 65 % of the world’s population will live in towns. Therefore, urban issues will be equally amplified : cities will have to answer the questions of mobility, energetics efficiency, urban sprawl, quality of life. The increasing digitalization of all the activities makes cities act as data provider sources. Transportation, energy, interactions, trade, all these flows generate enormous mass of information. The technological... [Lire la suite]

SNCF, RTE, Engie: where are they in their IoT deployments?

These three industrial groups have decided to launch themselves on a large scale in the IoT. From dozens of sensors for dunces to several thousand for good students. Entrepreneurs of the Internet of the objects have an eye on the energy companies and the giants of the world of transport, whose infrastructures are spread all over the territory. Signing a contract with Engie, SNCF or RTE allows these internet start-ups to demonstrate the efficiency of their intelligent devices. Like Intesens, Hikob and Ubiant, many start-ups now...
