Making infrastructure smart basically means adding intelligence to the networks through sensors, devices, M2M, etc that generate reliable data that can be processed in real time to provide information to all those involved in making decisions about their energy use, transport movement, weather conditions, financial status, healthcare monitoring etc.

 

By combining these databases in a trans-sector way – linking energy to traffic to healthcare, to weather, to economics – we will be able to move from the current silo-based structure to a true trans-sector structure.In the context of the global crisis, we must now look at every opportunity to build smarter communities. The next stage of human evolution is going to depend on merging humans and machines, something that is becoming increasingly possible through artificial intelligence (AI).
