Futuristic City

Smart cities – How future cities communicate

Sponsored by

As technology evolves and costs go down, cloud computing and advanced high-speed data transfer combined with robust, mobile hardware such as Smartphones, tablets etc. have given rise to an explosion of the real-world applications.

This is trickling down into the daily lives of every individual, and we see more cities using these solutions to improve services and deliver better living and working conditions to its citizens.

Technology such as AI gives us better insights based on data gathered by sensors and other traditional commercial applications such as payment terminals and control systems combined with historic data. This gives us the opportunity to successfully predict incidents before they happen.

We see technologies such as augmented reality, giving us better opportunity to plan cities in a virtual space and combine it with existing structures.

Oslo aspiring to be the green capital of Northern Europe, we would like to demonstrate how multinationals such as Cisco, and local startups such as Smart cities Norway, are developing solutions for the local municipalities utilizing these technologies.

If you would like to identify your place in future cities, and what business opportunities arise from these smart urban environments, join us at 6 pm June 4th at MESH, Oslo for “Smart cities – How future cities communicate”.
