Paul Cruddace will describe how data is collected and used, by for example by the Tesla* car and how it is able to learn that an object it locates on a pavement edge is fixed and not a pedestrian Once this data has been collected and analysed it is then available for use by other users.

As a starting point, those planning to attend what should be a most interesting evening, might find it it useful to know that Wikipedia* defines a Smart City as an "urban development vision to integrate information and communication technology (ICT) and Internet of things (IOT) technology in a secure fashion to manage a city's assets" It goes on to decribe these assets as including its transport systems and much more.
