Emerging Trends and Challenges of Cyborg in Smart Cities

Overview

Cyborgs are human beings that incorporate technological elements to increase their physical or sensory capacities. In the social imagination, cyborgs often invoke visions of super-humans entangled with cutting-edge technology capable of surpassing the limits of the human body. As the world’s population becomes increasingly urbanized the problems of building sustainable cities also grows. There is a long history of the application of systems thinking, cybernetics, and complex systems and the growth and control of cities. However, many problems still remain in the deployment and applications of these frameworks and methodologies, and in the potential consequences of their use. The key to the popularity of IoT is in the rate of deployment of smart systems. Experts believe that every day there will be more and more options for using smart systems.In recent years, two fields have become more prominent in our everyday life: smart cities and service robots. In a smart city, information is collected from distributed sensors around the city into centralized data hubs and used to improve the efficiency of the city systems and provide better services to citizens.

Informational urbanism is a new interdisciplinary and holistic research topic which studies smart cities. Informational urbanism considers not only ICT, but all kinds of information and knowledge, including tacit as well as explicit knowledge. The synergy between people and technology transforms each individual and creates cyborgs. Cities traversed by cyborgs become sensible. In this article, cybernetics as a framework has been applied for examining the implications of this phenomenon. Cyborg intelligence aims to integrate AI with biological intelligence closely and deeply by connecting computer systems and biological systems via BMIs, enhancing strengths and compensating for weaknesses of both systems by combining the biological systems' perceptive and cognitive abilities with the computer systems. Smart city data can be accessed by robots to gain information that is relevant to the task in hand. Robots can act as mobile sensors and actuators on behalf of the smart city, thus contributing to the data acquisition process.

This special issue will focus on various aspects of cyborg, challenges and its implications in smart cities. Recent innovation techniques like Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Decision Support System, Cyber security and Intelligent Data Analysis has great impact over Cyborg. This will also bring about the recent innovation in cyborg and its impact in smart cities.
