What is a smart city?

The rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) has driven the development of smart cities. Through this article, Future Cities will introduce you to the definition, applications of smart city.

WisdomWhat is Smart City?

Smart city refers to the use of data, communication and technology to improve urban problems.

The global population continues to increase and is concentrated in cities. According to the United Nations statistics, by 2050, two-thirds of the world's population will live in cities. In other words, urbanization leads to overcrowded cities, and the resulting problems must be deployed ahead of time by technology.

The original concept of smart city comes from IBM's "Smart Earth" - using the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence AI, cloud computing and other tools to form an efficient interaction with the city's transportation, waterways, power equipment, buildings and other equipment systems, Ultimately, it will improve the efficiency of the government and improve the quality of life of the people.
