Abstract [en]

Smart Cities concern a variety of domains such as information, data, energy, transport, health, etc. The ‘Information Age’, which shifts from the Industrial Revolution to information computerisation, accesses to large volumes of data explored by sophisticated computer based analytics. ICT solutions interconnect businesses and customers through the cloud while driving the global economy and development of Smart Cities. This MSc thesis aims to investigate connections between Smart Cities and cloud-based Cognitive Computing, then demonstrate with instances how the combination of Watson cognitive system and Pepper humanoid robot can enhance living experience. The investigation is based on literature review in the area of Smart Cities and ICT focusing on Internet of Things, Cloud Computing, and Cognitive Computing, observation of services on Bluemix, and interview with consultants and engineers of IBM. The services of Watson cognitive computing system enable Pepper to process unstructured information and interact with humans. The results also contain use cases of the functionality of Watson-powered Pepper, which could be further implemented for public services.
