Smart Cities Speakers

A smart city is an urban centre that uses collected data to manage resources and assets effectively, gathering information from citizens and devices to supervise everything from traffic to crime. This cost-effective method can respond to the needs of the city, rather than wasting resources.

Since the climate change movement, shift to online shopping and stress on public finances, more places have become smart cities. Through AI and data analysis, countries across Europe have been taking control of their economic, social and cultural future.


What Is A Smart City?


Put simply, a city can be considered “smart” when technology is used to benefit such areas as citizen participation, public transport, IT connectivity, water and power supplies, sanitation and urban mobility. From big data to the internet of things, smart cities collect data using CCTV and sensors to track crime, traffic and can even find out if someone is smoking in an undesignated area. 


When a city becomes “smart”, it can reduce the waste of resources and ultimately save money. With the intention of solving urban issues with technology, digital cities aim to improve day to day life by making the flow of the city more efficient.
