Smart cities are expected to create $2.46 trillion in business opportunities across the globe by 2025. But there’s a difference between what makes a city smart and a city that’s simply evolving for the future.

"During the pandemic, we really discovered that our assets are public assets and cities have been underutilized," Shin-pei Tsay, global head of cities and transportation policy at Uber, said at Insider’s recent virtual event, "The Future of Mobility: Data Driving Innovation," presented by Arity on Tuesday, September 14. "You’re starting to see how technology played a role in enabling the changes in the physical space."

This conversation, titled "Smart cities: What the future of urban mobility looks like," featured Tsay alongside Trevor Pawl, Michigan’s chief mobility officer, and Oliver Cameron, VP of product at Cruise, General Motors’ autonomous electric car subsidiary.
