Explore the Future of Cities at the Smart Economy Forum
ArabNet is rolling up its sleeves for the upcoming Digital Summit taking place in Dubai on April 30-May 1.
This year, the 2-day conference will include 5 forums during which subjects related to media and marketing, ecommerce, real estate, financial technology, big data, digital business transformation, and many others will be explored.
To introduce the different forums, we are producing a series of forum-focused articles, with this second article featuring the Smart Economy Forum.
The smart city market has witnessed considerable growth over the past few years driven by the need to improve the quality of life for urban residents by managing urban complexities, reducing urban expenditure, and increasing energy efficiency.
Euromonitor International expects that half of the global cities to emerge as “smart” by 2025 will surface from emerging markets and the Middle East. The Middle East in particular is advancing in the smart cities race, and the region is likely to see major gains due to significant initiatives launched by governments and private sector developers.
The internet of things, artificial intelligence, big data and blockchain are just some of the technologies that helping reshape cities and transform the relationship between governments and their citizens.
This year’s Smart Economy Forum at the Digital Summit will explore the applications of blockchain technology, driving progress through big data, and the evolving role of digital enterprises. It will also propose visionary outlooks for creative cities of the future.
