Creating A Process To Ensure The ‘Smartness’ Of Our Smart Cities
Adwait Nadkarni, an assistant professor in William & Mary’s Department of Computer Science, has different views about smart cities being implemented. He agrees that smart cities are the future and smart-city technology is becoming more and more prevalent. In cities like New York, they have a public Wi-Fi system and the city itself acts as an ISP. Chicago, on the other hand, is using Internet of Things (IoT) technology to smartening up its traffic controlling system.
Nadkarni is the principal investigator on a project titled “A Systematic Evaluation of Smart City Security and Privacy,” funded by the Commonwealth Cyber Initiative (CCI).
The main aim of the project is to understand the full range of the tensions between security/privacy and functionality of the systems, then to design technology from the ground up to alleviate concerns and increase adoption of the smart features. Though the scale of smart cities is huge when compared to that of a smart home, the other problem is the heterogeneity of the devices and deployments. There are also many other challenges. One of the biggest challenges is getting all the devices to communicate with one another without any security flaws.
