Cities around the world are currently under quick transition towards low carbon environment, high quality of living, and resource efficient economy. Internet of Things (IoT) and big data are powering the smart cities of the future by addressing societal challenges, such as air quality, transportation, and energy efficiency. In this talk, we will present our research project, called Green IoT, which provides artificial intelligence and open data for sustainable development. In this project, we developed an intelligent IoT system for air pollution monitoring in Uppsala, Sweden. We will present the system design, testbed development, and data analytics for urban monitoring and prediction. We will further present how distributed machine learning can provide intelligence and resilience for the IoT systems. Finally, we will highlight our on-going research activities on data analytics and machine learning for decision support in smart cities.
