We’ve started a digital journey that consumer pressure will force us to complete, regardless. People’s expectations, once realised, will increasingly demand quicker, more intelligent, data driven reactions to events. From bin collections through to looking after our citizens – a smart approach that puts people’s needs central is the way forward. As it joins the ranks of authorities developing smart city ambitions, Hull City Council is placing a strong initial focus on its infrastructure, the networks and digital capabilities to get the best from the internet of things (IoT) and other technologies and is better placed than many cities to press ahead. Adam Jennison’s closing keynote at WASTE MANAGEMENT Smart Class 2018 (which we hosted at ODI Leeds last November) asked whether ‘smart’ is just a buzzword and, with an emphasis on smarter waste management, outlined Hull’s experiences around Smart bins; Big data; Open data, the knowledge economy and a community based approach; Sensors; LoRaWAN; Smart City Platforms; Digital partners; and “The art of the possible”, including a dive into ‘Street Scene’!
