SmartCity I had an opportunity to share my experience with MTR TownGas HKElectric management today on how a Smart City improves our quality of life and drives its economic growth. Thanks for MTR and CUHK invitation. We talked about what a Smart City is and benchmarked Hong Kong with other MegaCity.
3 Major Layers of Smart Cities are: 1. Citizen awareness, usage & satisfaction 2. Smart City applications on 5 areas Safety Mobility Utility Health #Economy 3. Smart City technologies, such as IoT, Edge, 5G, AI, API, OpenData, BigData Blockchain
These 3 critical layers are highly related but the end result would be the values generated to citizens. We talked about key metrics to measure the success of these 3 layers.
Key Takeaways: 1. What are happening in the communities around you? What pains are there? Don’t wait the big guy to lead you. Start from the bottom. Startups do it well here. 2. How SharingEconomy models can solve these issues? How Uberization works? 3. How can we open up more data with proper APIs from government and enterprises to empower citizens, developers, companies to innovate? 4. How do we manage DataSecurity DataPrivacy AIEthics? We talked about GDPR, DistribitedAIDataGovernance.
Have a great Smart City journey.
