The concept of Smart cities is relatively well developed. It involves the capture of big data to make urban systems more efficient. But could the capturing of data optimise the performance and wellbeing of society as a whole? This was the main topic during Day One of the Youth International Summer School that is being held from 15th to 20th of July in the city of Shanghai.
With the Youth International Summer School in Shanghai just a few months away, Youth Time International Movement begins to interview the experts who will be sharing their expertise throughout the event. One of these experts is Mr. Rob van Kranenburg, Founder of Council – the largest independent IoT thinktank.
As the Youth International Summer School in Shanghai is now less than two months away, Youth Time International Movement are gearing up to welcome the experts and participants that will be travelling from all over the globe to share their knowledge, ideas, and experiences with one another. To get participants in the mood for the event we begin to interview the speakers and trainers who will pass on their expertise and advice to participants at the event.
