Three key issues to tackle before smart cities become a reality

My list


It’s likely that you’ve heard the term ‘smart city’ mentioned if you work in technology. There are plenty of potential definitions of what smart cities entail, but common wisdom suggests it’s a city or municipality that informs, protects, and improves the experience for its citizens. Above all, they operate based on the swift acquisition and aggregation of data, the fast assimilation of this information into useful content and its real-time dissemination to stakeholders, leading to more informed decision-making. Based on this definition, our smart city journey is only just beginning; we’ve barely scratched the surface of what’s possible, and what this will make possible.

That said, various cities around the world are developing their strategies quickly, with the likes of Singapore, Dubai and Oslo leading the way. In the UK, the pandemic paired with Brexit have given government and businesses time to think, adjust, and plan their approach, with the emerging challenge of environmental, social, and governance (ESG), driving demand for practical solutions, with smart technology at the core.
