Smart Cities - Driving A Digital Economy

 

 

Around the world, an estimated three million people move into cities every week, and the trend shows no signs of slowing. As the digital economy grows and matures, the “smart cities” movement is gaining momentum. For many people it represents the promise of high tech cities, with autonomous cars rolling the streets, drones delivering food, and connected devices everywhere helping city dwellers to perform a myriad of activities. However, this representation doesn’t convey the complexity of the field, where many issues (such as economy, social impact, environmental sustainability, and democratic participation) are intertwined. There is much more to Smart Cities.
