This episode is part of ITU's webinar series on Digital transformation for cities and communities

Episode 13 was organized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and was coordinated with the Web of Things WG of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). 

The Web of Things (WoT) is an emerging concept that aims to enable interoperability among Internet of Thing (IoT) platforms and applications. By using standardized web technologies and architecture, WoT has significant potential to boost the effectiveness of IoT platforms and applications across sectors. This webinar examined the nature of WoT and its potential in smart city applications in particular. It looked at the building blocks and architectural aspects that describe the key feature and functions of WoT. This unique webinar was joined by WoT experts who shared their experience in implementing WoT and used cases that highlight its applicability in the smart city and IoT contexts. ​
