How are #smartcities and intelligent infrastructure improving the life of citizens globally? pic.twitter.com/2XGMzjjRog
Q1 Smart city tech lowers barriers between gov and the public. It's improved many areas that directly impact our residents like waste removal, transportation, and climate resiliency. Smart tech + data makes our job easier and our community stronger! @CIOStraightTalk #STinsights— Ana Chammas (@panpanna) February 24, 2022
@CIOStraightTalk #STinsights (Q1:A2) I believe the most impactful initiatives towards smart cities that have scaled more include: public WiFi, digitizing city services for citizens, enhanced physical and digital mobility infrastructure, smart street lighting for enhanced safety— boyd cohen (@boydcohen) February 24, 2022
Q1: Much urban infrastructure is strained by decades of under-investment, from energy to transit. Beyond one-off #smartcity pilots, we need true public-private collaboration for cities to build sustainable, resilient, and inclusive infrastructure. @CIOStraightTalk #STinsights https://t.co/shOfaAV0qA— David Gilford (@dgilford) February 24, 2022
The best way to predict the future is to create it. Want to know the key technologies that can make this smart and sustainable future possible?
As we continually evolve smarter infrastructure in cities, its citizens (and businesses/governments) benefit from Efficiency, Accuracy, Safety, Predictability, and Convenience for a better quality of life and can improve sustainability. #STinsights https://t.co/S9RKA7Xvu9— Ashay Chaudhary (@ashay_c) February 24, 2022

Q2 Every technology is fair game for a #SmartCity However, key technologies include IOT for awareness, Cloud computing for data storage and analytical processing, 4G or 5G cellular for back haul, etc IOT is the eyes of a city & data is the life blood @CIOStraightTalk— Ted Ross (@TedRossLA) February 24, 2022
IOT & Data ties everything creating 1+1=11 synergy. Need Edge analytics for #latency #privacy #efficiency. Otherwise, we overwhelm network and cloud with a #data tsunami. @CIOStraightTalk #STinsights Q2 https://t.co/K4TmFYOjSC— Sameer Sharma (@sameer_iot) February 24, 2022
Q2 -Cities will soon have to integrate VR/AR and the Metaverse @CIOStraightTalk #STinsights https://t.co/kml4av7igu— esteve almirall (@ealmirall) February 24, 2022

@CIOStraightTalk #STinsights (Q3:A1) Love this question! This ties into work I did with a colleague a few years ago which led to an evolution of the smartcities wheel I developed a decade ago to the HappyCitizenhexagon https://t.co/cUeUEsWMPt— boyd cohen (@boydcohen) February 24, 2022
Tech is human innovation in action! Do you agree?
Q3 Part of our tech strategy is building community. Bringing ppl together to build and learn builds trust and increases engagement.
