Smart City based on Ambient Intelligence (SCAI) Workshop will be held in Hakodate, Japan on Aug. 28th, 2018, in conjunction with The 24th IEEE International Conference on Embedded and Real-Time Computing Systems and Applications (RTCSA) and The 7th IEEE Interntaional Non-Volatile Memory Systems and Symposium (NVMSA). This workshop is technically co-sponsored by Keio University, Ambient Intelligence Research Center and the IEICE (Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers) technical committees on Ambient Intelligence and Sensor Networks (ASN) in Japan.
"Ambient Intelligence" refers to the ambient environment containing ICTs to realize a smart city. Ambient intelligence is based on various ICT related technologies, such as sensors, networks, pervasive computing, artificial intelligence, and so on. In ambient intelligence sensing environments and obtaining data about them are essential tasks. Sensed data are locally processed and/or transmitted to the place, "Cognition" where useful information is extracted from the transmitted data. Sensing environments and transmitting the sensed data are referred to as IoT or sensor network, depending on where we talk about them. The sensed data are often referred to as big data. Based on the information extracted from the collected sensed data, ambient intelligence adaptively changes the environments and/or presenting the useful information to enhance and/or assist human activities, that is, to realize smart city. Toward future generation, it is important to realize a smart city based on ambient intelligence. From this point of view, we plan to hold a workshop about "Smart City based on Ambient Intelligence."
