Futurists have long envisioned smart cities of the future where residents and visitors thrive. Fine-tuned and seamlessly operated, these modern urban environments hum with advanced multi-modal transit systems, self-sustaining energy grids, clean and safe neighborhoods, integrated services and meaningful amenities. While incremental progress has been made toward this bright future, cities and communities continue to face complex challenges, including infrastructure upkeep, population growth, migration and sustainability issues. From schools to businesses and transportation to energy, a holistic vision helps bring solutions to every aspect of urban life. Working together, new ideas and new technologies can be brought to bear in concrete ways that enhance the lives of citizens and create a brighter future. The panel will discuss the direction cities like Dubai and Singapore are moving in and also a model for developing countries.
