Abstract: This study analyses how High Performance Computing technology can support the development of smart cities and proposes a conceptual model relying on this technology. Smart urban development has been a research subject for many years as digital services have the potential to improve residents’ quality of life. Many developments have been made throughout time but in different domains and up to this moment we cannot state that there has been developed any Smart City integrated system for a specific city on the globe. One major shortcoming in accomplishing this task is the fact that it would require a massive infrastructure with enough storage and processing power. HPC has the potential to overcome this as it combines both storage and processing power. The research paper also proposes a smart city powered by HPC infrastructure.

Keywords: Smart City, IoT, AI, Big Data, HPC.
