Abstract : Analysis of data by humans can be a time-consuming activity and thus use of sophisticated cognitive systems can be utilized to crunch this enormous amount of data. Cognitive computing can be utilized to reduce the shortcomings of the concerns faced during big data analytics. The aim of the study is to provide readers a complete understanding of past, present and future directions in the domain big data and cognitive computing. A systematic literature review has been adopted for this study by using the Scopus, DBLP and Web of Science databases. The work done in the field of big data and cognitive computing is currently at the nascent stage and this is evident from the publication record. The characteristics of cognitive computing, namely observation, interpretation, evaluation and decision were mapped to the five V’s of big data namely volume, variety, veracity, velocity and value. Perspectives which touch all these parameters are yet to be widely explored in existing literature.

This book offers a multidisciplinary resource on digital government, while specifically focusing on its role within the emerging market of India. The Government of India (GoI) is concentrating on transforming India under the Digital India initiative. In order to do so, it has emphasized three core areas: (1) Computing infrastructure as a utility to every citizen; (2) Governance and services on demand; and (3) Digital empowerment of citizens. The chapters in this book address issues surrounding these areas, highlighting concepts such as knowledge societies, urban operations and logistics, issues in managing emergent Information Communication Technologies (ICTs), and also smart analytics for urbanization. The chapters contribute to the theory, practice and policy for a “Digital India.” The book captures lessons, knowledge, experiences (about challenges, drivers, antecedents, etc.) and best practices emerging from implementation of various projects. While the book is dedicated to a “Digital India,” this book can also be valuable resource for public administrators, government officials and researchers in other emerging markets and developing countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America where similar socio-political and economic conditions exist.

The 2017 IEEE International Conference on Smart City Innovations
August 4-8, 2017, San Francisco, USA
Workshop/Special Session Proposal Due: January 30, 2017
Paper Submission Deadline: March 10, 2017
The 16th IFIP Conference on e-Business, e-Services and e-Society
Conference Theme: Digital Nations – Smart Cities, Innovation & Sustainability
Dates: 21st – 23rd November 2017
About the Conference: Smart city innovations are new approaches to holistic management of cities’ physical, socio-economic, environmental, transportation and political assets across all urban domains, typically supported by ICT and open data. They can be smart cities only if they become more sustainable, and improve quality of life and economic performance. This requires a shared vision of all stake holders -citizens, public and private organizations and many others. This conference will include experts and scholars working on smart cities, smart technologies, their applications, strategies, and policies for valuable deliberation.
