Frost & Sullivan has compiled a research service on how human life on a smarter planet is likely to be, given the constant evolution of enabling technologies across a range of verticals. This research service specifically uncovers twelve different smarter themes and provides a perspective of how these themes are impacted by the enabling technologies and other facilitators. The research service also highlights initiatives in the form of technologies, products, regulations, standards that aim to work toward one/more smarter themes. The research service concludes by envisioning of a list of scenarios that will dominate the smarter planet and the life in it.
Smart Governance–Facilitators and Technology Enablers
Smart Governance enable government services to be promptly available to the society through reliable, efficient. and transparent systems.
Public and National Safety: Enable urban security, cyber security and infrastructure protection. Environmental Protection: Address environmental concerns through policies on carbon emissions and sustainable development. Enabling Technologies: • Wireless Sensor Network • Data Analytics • Video Analytics • GPS and RFID tags
E- Governance: Provide complete access to government services through digital services. Enabling Technologies: • Cloud Computing • Internet of Things • Enterprise Architecture • SOA
Public Welfare: Improve services in education, health-care, public complaints, and crisis management. Enabling Technologies: • Big Data and Data Analytics • Cloud Services • M2M Terminals • Informatics • Smart Grids
Smart Governance–Technology Impact
E-Governance Cloud Computing and App: Cloud computing and mobile applications will empower citizens to create services hand in hand with the government. In this way, citizens can involve and help create transparent government policies and systems.
Risk Management Online Tax Systems: With IT systems that provide data integration, the government can collate tax payers records to not only identify defaulters, but also to identify non defaulters and give them tax benefits based on their consistency.
Real-Time System in Defence Data Analytics: Data analytics enhanced by systems that support video analytics will help obtain real-time scenario analysis for defence and border management services, which in turn will enhance safety of a nation.
Smart Education–Facilitators and Technology Enablers
Smart education refers to evolution of a suite of integrated digital technologies that can be accessed virtually anywhere, anytime. Smart education helps realization of quality learning, training, student management, and content management in a digitally enhanced environment.
Smarter Teaching Methodologies: Impart Education to masses through interconnected class rooms, systems and innovative displays. Instruction Mediums: Smart education can enable virtual classrooms and can hence make up for lack of teachers or aid teachers in adopting various influential teaching methodologies. Enabling Technologies: • Virtual Classroom • Digital White Boards • Augmented Reality • Cloud Services
Smarter Interaction: Enhance partnership between universities across the globe. Enabling Technologies: • Cloud Computing • Internet of Things • Virtual Classrooms • Conferencing • Virtualization
Smarter Delivery: Smart education is capable of improving the quality of education in terms of courses, instruction material, and medium of instruction. Enabling Technologies: • Predictive Data Analytics • Big Data • Capacitive/IR Touch Technologies • Haptics
Smart Education-Technology Impact
Smart Teaching Predictive Analysis: Data analytics software can provide real-time feedback to teachers about a student’s academic performance, and can hence help teachers analyse student behaviour and learning patterns to predict outcomes such as, slow learners or over performers. Predictive analysis in schools can help teachers close the gap between a student’s current performance and expected future performance.
Cost-Effective Education School as a Service: With cloud computing and virtualization “school as a service” model can impart education to students across the globe from one location at low administrative cost.
Education through touch technology Haptics: Haptics integrated with touch technology will close the loop between “touch and vision” and will aid differently abled and visually impaired students understand complex science and engineering concepts.
Applications for Medical Education Augmented Reality: Augmented reality applications can help medical education instructors simulate subjects for complex surgical procedures.
