The use of IoT and big data technology to improve city governance and the living quality of citizen in general has been prevailing around the world. There has been improvement in cyberinfrastructure in general, which enables high frequency long term observational data being collected from transportation, energy, environment, disasters and opinions from social media etc. How to understand the implication of the data and to derive the insight for decision making poses a great challenge. On the other hand it also provides opportunities not only for technology advance, efficient operations of cities, better life of citizen, but also for growth of economics. In this forum we invite leadership around the world to present the sate-of-the-art technology of IoT for smart cities as well as further discussions of what the role of AI can play in bigger picture.
