March/April 2019 I 47 When considering smart cities and the intelligently connected ecosystem envisioned by Intel's Klaus and the ICT and IT industries at large, a number of serious questions need to be asked. Will history repeat itself? Will vested players successfully collaborate to deliver on the intelligent ecosystem or will the endeavor succumb to the failure to make the major impact that AI systems, machine learning, and cognitive computing promised to deliver to society many decades ago? Will self- driving autonomous vehicles still be tested on city streets 100 years from now (200 years cumulatively)? Only time will tell.
