Sophia Antipolis, 2 October 2017

The 21st meeting of the Global Standards Collaboration (GSC), a high-level gathering of the world’s leading information and communication technologies (ICT) standards organizations, took place from 26-27 September 2017, hosted by the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) at the IEEE European office in Vienna, Austria.

GSC members shared their priorities and focused on Artificial Intelligence and Smart Cities.

The development of artificial intelligence (AI) in autonomous systems will transform society. Advancements in AI-focused areas, such as autonomous vehicles, cognitive computing, and collaborative robotics, are presenting complex public policy and technical challenges. Addressing these challenges requires the use of existing and new standards, which will impact a variety of applications including agriculture, communications, energy, the environment, health care, and transportation.

As smart city solutions move to large-scale implementations, issues such as different population densities, geography, and cultural differences will require global standards on semantics, platforms and other aspects. This will enable interoperability of services across cities and communities. Shared best practices can assist with the deployment of standards-based solutions for smart cities, increasing social and economic benefits.

GSC members also took the opportunity to share information on Intelligent Transportation Systems.

GSC members will continue to work together and to engage with experts from other fields.

The next GSC meeting will be held in Switzerland, hosted by IEC and ISO.
