By the year 2050, it’s estimated that two-thirds of the population will be living in urban areas. As a result, city infrastructures will have to change dramatically in order to cope with demand.
Thankfully, developments like artificial intelligence, the internet of things (IoT) and big data will lead to smart cities. Cities that think and react like a human brain. Here are Innovate UK’s predictions for the future of the city.
A great crowd of a 100 data enthusiasts gathered for our ‘How data transforms cities and communities’ event at the end of March, as part of #DataFest17. We were seeking answers, with the help of our speakers and the participants, to how data and digital technologies can help solve the challenges caused by the rapid urbanisation transforming our cities and communities.
At the end of last year, we told you about our smart city vision for Glasgow. We are now back with more updates as some of the master plans and designs are starting to take shape. To sum it up, the aim is to create a more walkable, greener, more liveable city centre and a truly 24-hour city.
Every year the International Data Corporation (IDC) issues a prediction around upcoming smart cities trends worldwide. In this post we gathered up the second 5 predictions and complemented them with insights and further resources. Link to the first 5 is in the body of the post. Enjoy!
