Description & Coverage
Description:

The perception of smart cities encompasses a strategy that uses different types of technologies, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning and in which, through the internet of things (IoT) and sensor-based data collection, the strategy extrapolates information using insights gained from that data to manage or monitor or track assets, resources, and services efficiently in an urban area. Both these models deeply affect the localities where they are applied and can create together immense possibilities for urban recovery, better quality of life, physical and mental health protection, and economic and social redevelopment.

Smart Cities and Machine Learning in Urban Health promotes interdisciplinary work that develops and illustrates the concept of resilience in relation to smart city and machine learning. The book examines the ability of an area and its communities to recover quickly from difficulties; the rigidness and resistance of an area and its communities to possible crisis; the ability of an area, its communities, infrastructure, and business to spring back into shape; and the responsiveness and mitigation towards the crisis with a special look at the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The research’s theoretical foundation rests on a wide range of non-architectural sources, primarily AI, sociology, urban studies, and technological development, but it explores everything on cases taken from real cities, thus transforming them into pieces of architectural interest. Covering topics such as carbon emissions, digital healthcare systems, and urban transformation, this book is an essential resource for graduate and post-graduate students, policymakers, researchers, university faculty, engineers, public management, hospital administration, professors, and academicians.

Editor/Author Biographies
J. Joshua Thomas is a senior lecturer at KDU Penang University College, Malaysia since 2008. He obtained his PhD (Intelligent Systems Techniques) in 2015 from University Sains Malaysia, Penang, and Master’s degree in 1999 from Madurai Kamaraj University, India. From July to September 2005, he worked as a research assistant at the Artificial Intelligence Lab in University Sains Malaysia. From March 2008 to March 2010, he worked as a research associate at the same University. Currently, he is working with Machine Learning, Big Data, Data Analytics, Deep Learning, specially targeting on Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) and Bi-directional Recurrent Neural Networks (RNN) for image tagging with embedded natural language processing, End to end steering learning systems and GAN. His work involves experimental research with software prototypes and mathematical modelling and design He is an editorial board member for the Journal of Energy Optimization and Engineering (IJEOE), and invited guest editor for Journal of Visual Languages Communication (JVLC-Elsevier). He has published more than 30 papers in leading international conference proceedings and peer reviewed journals.

Vasiliki (Valina) Geropanta is an Assistant Professor of Urban Planning with New Technologies at the Technical University of Crete, Faculty of Architecture. She holds a PhD in the field of the Smart City from the Università degli studi di Roma, Sapienza, Italy, an Ma in Housing & Urbanism from Architectural Association, School of Architecture, London, UK, and a Master’s Degree of Architect-Engineer from the University of Patras. Her research interests are on the transformation of cities because of the contemporary global challenges, through the smart - intelligent city model. Her latest research projects look at ICT methodologies for making human settlements more inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable; at contemporary approaches to conservation and promotion of cultural heritage with the use of ICT; at sustainable - smart tourism; and an exploration of the future of architectural education. She has participated in European research projects in capacity building in the field of Smart Tourism and Smart City (e.g. LMPΤ and Discover - Erasmus Plus, KA2), while she has been awarded grants for research and lecturing in Cambridge, India, Korea, Peru, Qatar, Vietnam, Italy and Lebanon. She has published extensively on urban and architectural issues with ICT, smart cities, smart tourism etc. and she is the co-editor of two books. She has also extensive participation in international conferences, workshops, seminars, while she currently serves as a reviewer and part of the editorial board of four international scientific journals. In 2018, she was nominated for the RIBA International Award 2019 for her contribution in Architecture through leadership of thought, education and research. The same year she was selected to open the 7ο International symposium of the UNESCO chairs in Peru, discussing the impact of ICT in the cultural revival of Rome. In 2018 she founded Avrions, (www.avrions.com), an activity that aims at raising awareness for the use of ICT in contemporary cities and at creating a mechanism of knowledge distribution and exchange with the objective to bring cultural and spatial innovation.
