About this Event

As the world becomes increasingly interconnected and technology-dependent, a new wave of smart applications is changing how we approach everyday activities. Utility appliances such as intelligent fridges (yes, you read that right), personal assistants like Amazon's Alexa or smart home security applications create opportunities for more efficient living. While the ideas of “Smart Cities” has been proposed as the future of urbanism, the question remains: how do we connecy this new technology for the ultimately "efficient" society?

Smart cities will be the product of the ongoing and gradual evolution of information technologies — with which we’re already familiar in our everyday lives. The smart city market is projected to grow from $81 billion globally in 2018 to over $158 billion in 2022

Smart City Executive Masterclass will enable you to understand Digital Transformation of Urban Services through the utilization of Big Data Analytics, Internet of Things (IoT), Blockchain, Smart City Financing Models, Public Private Partnership, Cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence.

This masterclass gives guidance on a good practice framework for decision‑makers in smart cities and communities (from the public, private and voluntary sectors) to develop, agree and deliver smart city strategies that can transition their city’s ability to meet future challenges and deliver future aspirations.

Learn how to establish a framework for the security-minded management of smart cities and their associated infrastructure, as well as of data, information and services used to deliver city services at Smart City Executive Masterclass.

This course gives guidance for decision-makers from the public, private and third sectors on establishing a framework which can support the sharing of city data and the creation of inter-operable information services.

This course provides a framework that can normalize and classify information from many sources so that data sets can be discovered and combined to gain a better picture of the needs and behaviours of a city’s citizens (residents and businesses).

Smart City Executive Masterclass gives guidance on how to adopt and implement smart city products and services in order to facilitate the rapid development of an effective smart city.

This masterclass gives guidance on how the planning and implementation of development and infrastructure projects can equip cities to benefit from thepotential of smart technologies and approaches.

This course is perfect for the entrepreneurs looking to jump onto the next phase of the Smart City termed as the Responsive City. Responsive Cities keep citizens into the center of sharing and interacting with Smart City Open Data. By the end of this course, executives will be familiar with using Citizen centric Design methodologies in order to engage in Smart City Urban Planning and quality development.

In this course, the emerging relationship between a citizen and a city as well as the potential risks of smart cities will also be investigated. In this course, you will learn the principles of urban infrastructure management & examine ways to incorporate smart technologies into legacy city infrastructures.

This course by Smart Cities Expo World Forum seeks to engage executives with the need to analyze potential risks, learn about new technologies and understand outcome based data driven design when implementing technological advancements in cities.
