Award-winning computer scientist Dr Larissa Suzuki discusses what is needed to create successful, inclusive smart cities.
While part of the discussion around digital transformation centres around remote working and cloud-based tech, the development of smart cities is also a hot topic, with many countries making conscious investments in this area.
For example, 2019 saw a series of big investments that aimed to make Singapore the first ‘smart city state’. And earlier this year, Paris-headquartered venture capital firm Eurazeo launched its second Smart City fund, raising €80m to invest in international start-ups in areas such as energy, mobility, proptech and logistics.
