Overview of 1st Smart Cities Asia 2015

Asia is home to a large portion of the world’s biggest and fastest-growing developing urban areas and smart city technology is turning into a critical component of their future improvement. To abstain from pushing local and global frameworks to the point of breakdown, cities will need to grow into smarter, efficient and proficient in years to come. Cities across Asia are beginning to actualize them with aggregate interest in smart city innovation anticipated that will achieve US $ 63.4 billion from now until 2023.

This event will also feature a 2-day exhibition that showcases a collaboration of all stakeholders and partners in making this vision a reality. Asia’s premier Smart Cities event will offer you a unique perspective on some of the most talked about Smart Cities issues and emerging trends to help industry professionals identify and to rationalize their infrastructure investment.

Smart Cities Asia 2015 will provide a platform for public-private partnership working in tandem in specific areas of the spectrum hence to meet, share experiences, raise issues and find solutions together to make the Smart Cities Asia a global role model.

Welcome Remark

The global smart cities market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 20% during the forecast period (2021-2026). More and more of us are living in cities – the UN predicts that 68 per cent of the world’s population will live in urban areas by 2050. And this means our cities are facing growing environmental, societal, and economic challenges. By making cities more innovative, we can overcome some of these challenges and make cities better places to live. Hear from this session about:

  • Adoption of technologies and platforms is increased by 30% of cities with automation, IoT and AI blending physical and digital for an improved infrastructure connecting the city with its citizens.
  • The change in the lifestyle with the prediction of 40% of cities using digital space planning tools for homes and hybrid workspaces, creating an innovative, sustainable lifestyle for citizens.
  • Highlighting role and impact of big data
  • Effective use of data in predictive analysis
  • Leveraging big data, M2M and cloud to assist the transition

Panel Discussion: The Next Frontier, Smart Cities AI Plan

It is evaluated that, as 5G networks hit the decks of the transport industry globally, over 700 million cellular IoT vehicles are foreseen to be operational by the end of 2024, with a significant portion destined for the automotive industry. Vehicles controlled using the 5G network could easily bypass traffic congestion and other obstacles creating a more efficient form of transportation with the input of data from all corners connected to the vehicle’s internal system. This session speaks on: –

  • Data privacy and security to ensure the complementarity of public transportation by upgrading the transportation systems via 5G.
  • Implications of the digital transformation of big data for the connectivity between vehicles and cloud computing, using AR/VR to provide real-time road data, and making manual navigation assistance smarter and safer will be addressed.
  • Strengthening of the grid infrastructure to be able to adapt these technologies at a faster pace.
  • Condition-based monitoring systems lead to self-healing designs, which will enable the modernization of the power system to an automated microgrid.

Networking Luncheon

Human-centricity can and should be the foundation for building empowered data societies. The City of Helsinki created a couple of tools to enable efficient utilization of sensitive data with the vital principle that the storage, anonymization, and processing of data are separated and that different individuals perform each task. Hear from this speaker on:

  • How policymakers worldwide can adopt and build systems that use data responsibly and innovatively to create progress that legitimately serves people and communities.
  • Using data responsibly, assuring citizens’ interests are respected and always prioritized.
