The Digital Cities Action Line main target is to drive digital transformation in smart cities. There are 3 key areas in which we put the focus on:
- Urban mobility: the demographic, geographical and financial limitations to deploy efficient and cost effective public transport will drive the emergence of solutions for a clean, quiet, stressless, and cost effective mobility.
- Big data analytics: cities need to develop a new role in organising the urban information framework and creating a new informative ecosystem. Big Data analytics and artificial intelligence, acting on data created by IoT sensors and open data, will result in the emergence of new business actors.
- Resilient cities: safety in a city and resilience to unplannable natural events (e.g. heavy weather) or man-made events (e.g. terrorist attacks) need to be improved at many different stages: analysing threats and risk occurrence, designing mitigation strategies, training, prediction of potentially hazardous situations, etc.
Stéphane Péan, Action Line Leader, considers SCEWC the place to be: "it is the most important international event of the year on Digital Cities. Our innovation activities will present their breakthrough solutions with great announcements. Come meet us at our booth!"
