As cities grow more densely populated, technology that was previously only assumed to be tools for a more efficient human experience is evolving to shape how cities operate. This mechanization is what we refer to as ‘smart technology’.
Our smartphones for example perfectly reflect this phenomenon, allowing us to directly relay information about traffic, safety alerts, health services as well as community news to the masses.
Technological advancements and artificial intelligence combined have reshaped the way we construct and operate our cities! In most cases, technological solutions present tremendous opportunities to tackle environmental challenges and pave the way towards creating a sustainable, smart city.
