A smart city implies the realization of sustainable city growth enabled by technology-based intelligent solutions to give a good quality of life to its citizens. Information and communication technologies play a crucial role as the nerve centre of the smart city for collecting and analysing data from various sources, like mobile, social media, and sensors. Internet of things (IoT) and big data (BD) also play a critical role in the smart city infrastructures, changing the way we analyse patterns and trends in human behaviour. Smart cities generate a huge amount of data, and therefore need many flexible ways to implement data and processing gateways.

Recently, cognitive analytics have attracted the attention of researchers and practitioners worldwide as a technology-based smart solution. It is a novel approach to information discovery and decision making which uses multiple intelligent technologies such as statistical machine learning, deep learning, distributed artificial intelligence, natural language processing and visual pattern recognition to understand data and generate insights...
