Location marketing tends to focus on employment opportunities, local scenery, commute times, broadband speeds and public service performance – however, there is a growing interest and awareness of the importance of air quality and pollution on health. With the emergence of air quality monitoring systems and IoT technologies, the availability of data relating to air quality and pollutants is ever-increasing.
We regularly speak to customers who have a requirement to measure turbidity levels in water supplies, rivers and other bodies of water. IoT is a powerful and cost-effective way to measure turbidity and transmit the results for analysis, visualisation and reporting.
Turbidity is the loss of transparency, cloudiness or haziness of fluid due to the presence of particles that are invisible to the human eye. These suspended solids cause the water to appear murkier, as the turbidity increases. Smart water solutions and IoT have specialist sensors that can measure turbidity levels.
We conducted an exercise asking AI (artificial intelligence) important questions about Isle of Man education, taxation, and government policy. Using GPT-3 models, trained on millions of public data sources – the answers are insightful, informative and often hilarious.
The Times has published a Smart Cities 2022 report that explores how technology can improve urban areas, making them cleaner, more efficient and our societies happier and more equitable. The report looks at policies and technology that can be used to create future cities.
The Digital Cities Index 2022 whitepaper sets out the key factors that have helped cities worldwide adopt digital technologies. The report provides an insight into the many benefits digital technologies offer and highlights best practice examples from the top-performing smart cities.
The report emphasises there is a sizeable bank of experience based on digital technology deployments throughout the world, which can be used when cities choose to form their own policies/strategies. In this blog post, I’ll summarise the key takeaways of the DCI report.
Once malware or a malicious exploit has bypassed your defences and run on your system, it may establish a foothold that ensures it will continue to run, even after reboots or the user logs off. This type of threat is known as a persistent foothold. EDR/MDR software can identify and neutralise these types of persistent threats. Read more
