La vision des Emirats arabes unis pour 2020

DUBAI, UAE, January 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Métropole multiculturelle composée de plus de 200 nationalités, Dubaï et les E.A.U. font preuve d'une longue tradition d'accueil. De ce fait, il est tout à fait naturel que les E.A.U. se portent candidat à l'organisation de l'Exposition Universelle. Les millions d'habitants et les personnes qui visitent l'émirat chaque année ont pleinement conscience que l'innovation et l'interconnectivité avec le monde font partie intégrante de l'identité de cette ville.

Le thème de la candidature de Dubaï, « Connecter les esprits, Construire le futur », s'appuie sur trois sous-thèmes qui représentent les facteurs clés du développement global : Durabilité (des ressources durables en énergie et en eau), Mobilité (des systèmes logistiques et de transport intelligents) et Opportunités (de nouveaux axes de développement économique). Si la candidature des E.A.U. est retenue pour l'organisation de l'Exposition Universelle de 2020, ce sont 25 millions de visiteurs qui sont attendus sur le site choisi pour l'Exposition, le Centre d'affaires de Jebel Ali, pour une période de six mois.

Les Emirats arabes unis seraient le premier pays dans la zone Moyen-Orient, Afrique du Nord, Asie du Sud-Est à organiser l'Exposition Universelle. L'événement représenterait un nouvel épisode marquant de l'histoire des Expositions Universelles, qui a commencé en 1851 à Hyde Park à Londres, et qui a depuis régulièrement réuni des millions de personnes à travers le monde. Si la candidature de Dubaï est sélectionnée, 70% des visiteurs viendraient de l'étranger, une première dans l'histoire des Expositions Universelles.

L'Exposition Universelle de 2020 coïncidera également avec le Jubilée d'Or des E.A.U. Depuis sa création il y a 41 ans, le pays a su s'imposer comme étant un des leaders des économies émergentes de la région. D'ici 2020, les E.A.U. auront renforcé encore davantage leur position de centre majeur de commerce et de tourisme, reliant l'Est à l'Ouest et le Sud au Nord. Le tiers de la population mondiale vit dans un rayon de 4 heures de vol de Dubaï. Par conséquent, l'opportunité de découvrir les dernières innovations technologiques, architecturales et culturelles sera d'autant plus intéressante pour un public international.

Dubaï, E.A.U., est en lice avec quatre autres villes candidates à l'organisation de l'Exposition Universelle de 2020 : Ayutthaya (Thaïlande), Ekaterinbourg (Russie), Izmir (Turquie) et Sao Paulo (Brésil). La ville gagnante sera annoncée en novembre 2013 à l'issue d'un vote effectué par les 161 pays membres du Bureau International des Expositions - l'organisme international chargé de superviser les candidatures, la sélection et l'organisation des Expositions Universelles.

Nombre d'inventions majeures comme le téléphone ou la machine à écrire, ont été présentées au public pour la première fois lors de précédentes Expositions Universelles. Imaginez ce qui pourrait émerger à Dubaï en 2020…

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
