June 18, 2019 – In a clear demonstration of why AI leadership demands the best compute capabilities, NVIDIA today unveiled the world’s 22nd fastest supercomputer – DGX SuperPOD – which provides AI infrastructure that meets the massive demands of the company’s autonomous-vehicle deployment program.
Data sharing and visualization platform for European cities and regions
Companies and institutions are coming together to develop smart cities as international meeting points and business hubs. Barcelona, New York, the Australian government or the EU for example have been using APIs to drive connected cities. Rudolf Giffinger, one of the world’s leading experts in urban development, defines smart cities using six clearly separate criteria: economy, mobility, environment, administration, way of life and residents.
Should Data Exchanges be based on free or open data? As many of you may know, Open is different from Free. Open software, for example, refers to reading software source code. Free software allows you to use the software for free. Data can be Open or Free, or both.
We discuss the cost of providing Free data in a world where more and more data is being produced. New business models are evolving for Open Data that encourage use, innovation, and business model development and preserve the rights of innovators and data users as well as those who provide the data.
When it comes to smart city innovation, it’s arguable that most use cases are not that exciting to the average resident. A connected garbage bin, traffic light or parking meter is not going to cause applause and adoration for city officials at least in the first instance.
SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) and REST (Representational State Transfer) are both web service communication protocols. SOAP was long the standard approach to web service interfaces, although it’s been dominated by REST in recent years, with REST now representing more than 70% of public APIs according to Stormpath.
Open Data Policy – Managing Information as an Asset
The Federal Open Data Policy states: “Agencies must apply open licenses, in consultation with the best practices found in Project Open Data, to information as it is collected or created so that if data are made public there are no restrictions on copying, publishing, distributing, transmitting, adapting, or otherwise using the information for non-commercial or for commercial purposes.””
We’re on track in the Data Supercluster for an exciting Expo event. Check out the details at the NIST GCTC Expo web site and sign up. Its free to attend, but you must register.
SynchroniCity, a large, international internet of things (IoT) pilot for smart cities, and its technology partner Digital Catapult, a UK government innovation agency, are using TM Forum Open APIs to create a marketplace enabling the exchange and trade of a broad array of city-generated IoT data among a diverse group of stakeholders for…
