World populations is increasingly concentrated in urbanized areas. According to the UN World Urbanization report in 2014, 54% of the world’s population resided in urban areas. In 1950, only 30 per cent of the world’s population was urban. This trend is expected to continue and by 2050, 66% of the world’s population is expected to reside in urban areas. In 2014, Asia was home to 53% of urban population, followed by Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean. This trend is indication of globally higher living standards however it sounds as alarm on the unprecedented pressure on new and old urban eco-systems. Basic services including water, energy, waste management, transportation, health care, and food supply are feeling the pressure of this population growth. As society we need to redesign the basic urban infrastructure to stand the pressure of an ever growing population. Recent advances in AI, sensing, edge-computing and connected objects (IoT) are offering a window of opportunity to change urban infrastructure towards improved resource utilization and a better infrastructure scalability and flexibility. The worksop aims at offering an area to discuss current and future challenges in our cities and communities as well as to describe the state of things and identify the challenges and research areas that have a great potential impact in real cities globally.
