The Cities Leading The Way In Smart City Technology
If cities across the globe were to adopt some form of a smart city technology, the improvement of productivity and quality of life would be huge and ‘give back’ three weeks worth of time to each city dweller. Some cities are already leading the way and giving back to their citizens, but who is most successful?
We worked alongside Ecard Shack to create this interactive map where major cities around the globe have been ranked across 4 key factors in technology: mobility, healthcare, public safety and productivity, with the goal of evaluating how they might deliver positive citizen outcomes in terms of improving the quality of life.
The top cities already using smart tech are:
- New York
- San Francisco
Some hooks this piece reveals:
- The cities focussing most on improving safety through tech are – Singapore, New York, Chicago, Seoul and Dubai.
- Smart cities have the potential to give back each city dweller three working weeks worth of time every year
- There are smart cities in every continent across the globe which are aiming to improve mobility, healthcare, public safety and productivity for its citizens
