KNOWLEDGE-BASED CITY DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION

Application of knowledge graphs and reusable building blocks for city digital transformation
Digital City Planner
Solution for city transformation with pre-installed knowledge base
Key Issues for Smart City transformation
Transforming cities is a complex task that requires new approaches and management technologies:

— Number of tasks, stakeholders, problem-solving ways and approaches is growing
— Life speed is increasing: people needs the newest innovation technologies and applications
— New services for businesses, citizens and the government appear, however services by themselves can be a chaotic system
Problem space
Do you want to...
… minimize hiring top/external consultants (including benchmark)
… have an easy access to the world best practices and experience in smart city area
… have a holistic and evidence-based smart city development system
… collect, prepare and pack knowledge for reuse and worldwide replication
Innovation
Our product represents a new way for designing and planning of smart city domains and solutions using world best practices and methodologies via knowledge services

Solution
Methods
Processes and techniques for:
— knowledge collection, packing, sharing
— city domain analysis, design and transformation

This component will help to establish high quality decision making and digital transformation capabilities for city administration or receive necessary consulting service.
Knowledge
Model-driven knowledge base of a city management, which will integrate and "pack" terminology, best practices, standards, patterns & reference models (reference content).

This component will help to get quick answers to simple questions of city administration and to create city-specific solutions more rapidly and cheaper.
Tool
Software tool for collaborative description and design of different city domains with easy-to-use knowledgebase and intelligent services.

This component will provide better information integration, access and analytics within the final solution.
How it works
DIGITAL CITY PLANNER PLATFORM Knowledge: 1. Frameworks and methodologies 2. Classifications and ontologies 3. Architecture & process patterns 4. Data models 5. Values of indicators (Collect Package Share) City knowledge graph Knowledge services: 1. Reusable building blocks 2. Recommendations 3. Inference (reasoning) 4. Benchmarking 5. Smart search (Analyze Design Plan) City-specific models & solutions. We apply Enterprise Architecture, Knowledge Management and System approaches.

Smart Reviews
"The Open Research Knowledge Graph utilizes the recent progress in information technologies to build the next generation digital libraries for semantic scientific knowledge. We aim to describe scientific knowledge in a structured, machine-interpretable way. This will help researchers find relevant contributions to their field and create state-of-the-art comparisons and reviews"
