In recent years, intelligent cities, also known as smart cities or cognitive cities, have become a perceived solution for improving the quality of life of citizens while boosting the efficiency of city services and processes. This new vision involves the integration of various sectors of society through the use of the internet of things. By continuing to enhance research for the better development of the smart environments needed to sustain intelligent cities, citizens will be empowered to provision the e-services provided by the city, city officials will have the ability to interact directly with the community as well as monitor digital environments, and smart communities will be developed where citizens can enjoy improved quality of life.
