  • Overview

This event will explore the use of data, automation and AI in shaping cities and metropolitan communities of the future. What can we learn from international case studies of the capture and (mis)use of data - both online and in real world democratic processes - to safeguard citizens and city-infrastructure from malign influence? 

Smart Cities 2020 will review Smart initiatives being implemented in city-regions across the world - with particularly focus on activities in Europe and South-East Asia - in order to:

  • Explore innovative ways in which to support the complex needs of citizens and develop the infrastructure to overcome new and existing societal challenges.
  • Develop new perceptions, experiences and ideas on what makes a city Smart; what will be the role of data/emerging technologies in building sustainable constructed-environments and integrating communities?
