DATA-DRIVEN APPROACHES TO BREEDING THE RURAL-URBAN GAP

“If you want to be successful, happy and wealthy - get to a city!”
— Scott Galloway

Ever the laboratories of human innovation, Cities have harnessed the power of Big Data to improve their inhabitant’s access to knowledge, medical care, municipal services and mobility. However, the onset of the Fourth Industrial Revolution prom-ises to challenge to the dominance of Cities as hubs of human innovation, social change and wealth accumulation. Wireless technology promises democratises ac-cess to the convenience of Smart City life for even the most remote communities

LAST YEAR’S SMART CITY FESTIVAL

Last year’s Smart City Festival proved to be a runaway success with room-filling crowds gathering to listen to 26 panels and presentations on the main stage. Partner companies, and municipalities filled the Agora where they shared their solutions to some of the glaring challenges faced by modern cities. The event was capped by an unforgettable meet & greet session where presenters, panelists and experts mingled with guests and exchanged ideas on how to make cities better places to live.

THE EUROPEAN STAGE FOR URBAN INNOVATION

The City is now the focal point for human innovation, cultural life, social change and wealth generation. The Smart City Festival brings together technologists, futurists, urban planners and thinkers from across Europe to share experience dealing with the challenges of urban life and harness innovation to make cities work for those who call them home.
