About Urb-IoT 2021

The Urb-IoT conference aims to explore dynamics within the scope of the Internet of Things (IoT) in the urban context and the application of artificial intelligence in the IoT. With the increasing application of artificial intelligence technology, it has been widely used in a large number of fields such as buildings and infrastructure, transportation, utility, industry, public safety, healthcare, education, and so on. The Internet of Things technology has now been integrated into all aspects of social and economic life, and a large amount of Internet of Things data has been generated by the Internet of Things system, which provides greater value for the application of artificial intelligence technology in the IoT industry.

The increasing deployments of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies are opening up new avenues of research opportunities towards future. By introducing artificial intelligence, we can analyze IoT data, business data and user data, and realize a highly autonomous system based on artificial intelligence, harshness, and algorithms. Therefore, how to introduce more artificial intelligence technology into the application system of the Internet of Things industry is among the interests to this conference. We welcome theoretical and experimental papers. We hope that the conference papers can provide valuable references for the broad audience in academia and industry. Encourage original, unpublished articles and survey/tutorial type articles.
