In the connected and big data era, achieving intelligent and reliable operation of smart cities is aligned with the ambitious targets of the UK for sustainability and reduced emissions by 57% by 2030, while the so called Energy Trilemma (providing affordable, resilient and clean energy) has been identified as a critical issue by the Research Council UK (RCUK), as dealing with resilience and connectedness issues is among its strategic priorities.

i-City is an exciting student competition sponsored by MathWorks and jointly run by MPLS and Reuben College to address these challenges. This will enable:

• enhancing the autonomous and sustainable operation of smart cities both in the UK and at an international level

• drive research and innovation to enable connectedness in urban environments

• use insights from AI & Machine learning, and Sustainability -- two of the main themes at Reuben College -- to reduce the environmental footprint of daily operations in buildings and mobility and enhance their efficiency.

The programme will offer a blend of in-person and on-line workshops, with tools for innovation, generation and development of ideas as well as technical training on AI and Machine Learning, culminating in pitching each team’s solutions.
