La mondialisation et l'européanisation favorisent le développement rapide des villes à travers le monde. L'urbanisation atteint de nouveaux sommets aujourd’hui avec l'essor des mégacités (plus de 15 millions d'habitants) comme Calcutta, Los Angeles, Dhaka, Le Caire, Tokyo, New York, Shanghai, Mexico ou Séoul. Au-delà de la métropole moderne, les chercheurs tentent de donner un sens à ces grandes régions urbaines au moyen de concepts divers tels que « post-métropoles », « villes globales », et « régions métropolitaines globales ».

Les villes regroupent déjà la moitié de la population mondiale et en concentreront les trois quarts avant la fin de ce siècle. C’est donc là que les sociétés doivent résoudre les problèmes majeurs pour leur durabilité, tant en matière de développement économique, de transition écologique, que d’équité sociale. Une bonne compréhension de la diversité des villes et de ce qui la cause est essentielle pour la réussite de ces évolutions nécessaires.

La vision de la « ville connectée », également qualifiée de « ville numérique » ou encore de « ville intelligente », prévoit que l'ensemble de l'espace urbain sera interconnecté et interagira avec le monde numérique. Ceci ouvre en particulier la voie au développement durable de nos environnements urbains, combiné à une amélioration de la qualité de vie et de la sécurité des citoyens dans le respect de leur vie privée. C'est également l'opportunité de revoir les processus de régulation et de gestion des villes par un engagement accru du citoyen au moyen des réseaux sociaux et des capteurs, physiques ou logiciels, embarqués dans les téléphones intelligents.

Learn the latest technologies for managing big data and using it to improve life in smart cities. Cities run on a stream of data. In the smart city, the innovative use of data helps provide better and more inventive services to improve people’s lives and make the entire city run more smoothly. But the data our cities collect nowadays is more massive and varied, and is accessed at higher speeds than ever before. This is Big Data. New technologies are constantly being developed to better manage Big Data. This computer science course, from the IEEE Smart Cities initiative and the University of Trento, helps students understand and use these new technologies to help improve a city.
