Enabling the Future Internet for Smart Cities

Enabling the Future Internet for Smart Cities

The Future Internet will integrate large-scale systems constructed from the composition of thousands of distributed services, while interacting directly with the physical world via sensors and actuators, which compose the Internet of Things.

The InterSCity project seeks post-doctoral researchers that have already demonstrated a good capacity of producing high-quality research with publications in top international journals and conferences. If you believe you fall into this description and are interested in working with us, apply for a position in the InterSCity Project.

MIT scientist Fabio Duarte Graduate Course on Urban Science at IME-USP

MIT scientist Fabio Duarte conducted a graduate course on Urban Science at IME-USP.
The course was based on recent literature on Urban Science, AI, and Autonomous Vehicles published in the Nature and Science journals.
The contents were highly interdisciplinary and attracted 35 graduate students from Computer Science, Architecture, Urban Planning, Engineering, Physics, and Social Sciences. Staff members from the City of São Paulo, IPT, and SERPRO, the Brazilian Public IT Company, also participated.
