Implementation of a smart city comes with enormous opportunities to improve the lives of citizens and transform the overall city infrastructure and operations. From an evolving technology point of view, we are now entering a phase where the development of AI models having predictive, prescriptive and contextual analytics capability is helping cities grow.
The smart city gets an eagle-eye view of the entire city through connected homes, cars, streets and buildings, allowing it to deliver insights to reduce waste, expense and waiting times—building a sustainable society. Smart devices like autonomous electric vehicles will understand an individual’s daily patterns to charge automatically. Cities and companies are optimising energy, water consumption and carbon emissions for a better environment and society. City managers are effectively scheduling trains, decrease congestion on platforms, and reduce car traffic when there are seats available on trains. Due to increasing population, detecting an infectious disease and preventing its spread is most crucial. Acting quickly with accurate real-time information coupled with data analytics can have a profound impact on the lives of people around the world, socially and economically.
