Speech Title: Mobile Crowdsourcing: Towards Smart Cities
Abstract: Leveraging new communication technologies and Internet of Things (IoT) applications, local administrations and governments aim at managing the city infrastructures and optimize the public services in an efficient and sustainable manner. Furthermore, they adopt intelligent and cost-effective mobile applications to deal with natural disasters, such as pollution and traffic congestion. Mobile crowdsourcing (MCS) is an emerging paradigm for enabling smart cities, which integrates the wisdom of dynamic crowds with ubiquitous mobile devices to provide decentralized applications and services. Using MCS solutions, residents play the role of an active worker to generate a wealth of crowdsourced data which can significantly promote the development of smart cities. This talk highlight research challenges in computing and analyzing mobile crowdsourced data generated by large amount of participants/devices, and fusing multi-sourced and heterogeneous urban big data to facilitate applications towards smart cities.
