“Visa, the world’s largest credit card network, can predict how likely you are to get a divorce”.

“New York-based insurer Lemonade employs a chat-bot, “A.I. Jim,” which was recently credited with paying out a claim in under three seconds”.

Knowing the future may not always guarantee you a better life. Everything is moving towards super smart future development. With the deployment of pro-active sensing devices, the ever-growing use of smart phones, the advanced use of digital data analytics and the acceptance of AI – smart living is becoming a reality. Technology disruptors are accelerating their development with less of a focus on the human capacity of socioeconomic adaptability than on their financial interests. Hence it is urgent to find out the more about the future impacts of these technological shifts and their acceptance in order to mitigate unwanted and unforeseen future circumstances and to avoid living the rest of our lives in cities that we would not choose to live in.

He is currently working in a leading Digital Analytics centre called “Consumer and Organizational Digital Analytics Research Centre (CODA)”. Previously, he worked as a Scientific Research Computing Specialist for 3 years in the Department of Engineering Science, at the University of Oxford. Prior to Oxford, he worked in the Physics Department, at Imperial College London. He was awarded PhD Scholarship to work at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN), Switzerland after he started his PhD at University of Cranfield. He was awarded a further scholarship by the Atlantic Association for Research in the Mathematical Sciences (AARMS) at the University of New Brunswick, Canada. He also obtained a CERN School of Computing programming diploma from the University of Gottingen, Germany. Coming from a strong infrastructure deployment and data analytical background as well as helping to build a number of data-intensive systems, Mamun now works on solving the diverse set of problems for finding impacts of state-of-the-technology technology in the area of IoT, Big Data, Block Chain, pattern recognition, Smart Infrastructure, Future Cities and Distributed HPC. He has interests in multi-disciplinary research spectrums focussing on a force for innovation, scientific discovery and potentially those can make a worldwide impact.
