Powering Smart and Connected Communities
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.
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.
As we deep-dive global cities working to create value from data, we’re sharing city data portals among the Data Supercluster membership. Community leaders and other stakeholders may find key metrics to refine products, form Action Clusters, rally and reach out to Citizens.
In America, 40% of food is wasted. This is an astounding number. The Data Supercluster is examining how today’s waste stream management build environment might share data relevant to food waste. Is enough data available but hidden today? Can inferences from grocery and restaurant purchases drive data models that support food waste metrology?
A call for an Action Cluster to investigate methods to measure food waste, take action to mitigate food waste and measure results will be announced soon. To create your own Action Cluster in the Data Supercluster, use the NIST GCTC Action Cluster worksheet/application form.
WASTED! THE STORY OF FOOD WASTE aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Through the the eyes of chef-heroes like Anthony Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien, audiences will see how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system.

Thingsboard is a relatively new open-source IoT platform for data collection, processing, visualization, and device management. You can deploy it in the cloud or on-premises.
As one of Thingsboard authors, I can say that the main project idea is:
- Simple yet powerful API for device connectivity.
- Rich set of functionality.
- Horizontal scalability and fault-tolerance in cluster mode.
- Thingsboard IoT Gateway enables connectivity for legacy and existing IoT devices
