Cities are the way of the future.

In less than 35 years, the World Health Organization estimates that two-thirds of the world population will be living in urban areas. That’s an additional 2.5 billion people. The cities that will flourish the most are those that rely on cutting-edge technologies and create opportunities for people to develop new ones.

To get a sense of which cities do that the best, Business Insider consulted 2thinknow, a research firm that specializes in analyzing innovative cities, to rank the most high-tech cities in the world.

The firm chose 10 factors related to technological advancement — including the number of patents filed per capita, startups, tech venture capitalists, ranking in other innovation datasets, and level of smartphone use — weighted them, and ranked a list of 85 cities accordingly.

Smart City Trends

Smart City Trends 696 258 Remoticom BV

More often people talk and write about Smart Cities. The most famous and global smart city is Singapore. They are close at becoming the first Smart Nation worldwide. What exactly is a Smart City and what are the trends now a days?

What are Smart Cities?

A smart city is a city run by the Internet of Things and managed by information technologies. The city is made smarter to improve the quality of life for the residents. One of the main goals is to organize more efficiently and reduce the gap between residents and the board. Smart Cities also come together with digitization and urbanization. Eventually the city becomes more attractive, more sustainable and more livable.

Smart cities are becoming more and more prominent

Smart cities are becoming more and more prominent 1024 683 Remoticom BV

Smart Cities no longer only live in the fantasy of technicians. They are becoming more realistic every day and the number of smart cities is growing. Not only young or yet to build cities starting to become smart, but also excisting cities like Amsterdam benefit from it.

Huawei implemented concepts in over 200 cities, divided over 40 countries. Edwin Diender, President Government and Public Utility Sector of Huawei Enterprise, has a lot of expierence. “The impact of smart cities is huge. In Shenzen, Southern of China, the government has access to 1.3 million CCTV cameras for law enforcement alone, of which 60 thousand are high definition cameras. These cameras produce 4 million photographs per day only for law enforcement purposes. All these images can’t be checked manually, so the cloud based video services are available for this job. The 20.000 police officers will therefore receive substantial support from the cloud technology, developed by Huawei. Life in the city, which has more than 21 milion inhabitants, has improved.”

The evolution of smart tech: What will our cities look like in 2025?

The evolution of smart tech: What will our cities look like in 2025? 770 364 Remoticom BV

There’s no question Internet of Things (IoT) technology is pivotal for the future development of smart cities. While smart cities have been depicted in TV shows and movies for years, showing futuristic worlds where cars can fly or where drones buzzing overhead is the norm, the truth is a version of this reality is closer than you think.

In response, companies must be better prepared for the onslaught of demand by today’s consumers who have become accustomed to a convenience-based society. Those movies, and the consumer views that come with them, are focused on the narrow front end or consumer-facing view (the flying car, the delivery drone, or the smart building itself). The “smart city” will only become a reality when the backbone of the city – the infrastructure and moreover, the software that will dynamically bring all these parts together for the efficient and responsible lives of the cities inhabitants – is in place and widespread.

How to build tomorrow’s Smart Cities?

How to build tomorrow’s Smart Cities? 500 253 Remoticom BV

Ecological, sustainable and pleasant to live, Smart Cities projects flourish worldwide. Cities are studying, to a greater or lesser extent, projects related to several fields: sustainable development, energy, environment, quality of life, mobility & EV infrastructure, water or start-up. This research involves a multitude of actors and remains complicated to implement: we will not see a fully connected city, at the earliest, in 2020. 

Meanwhile, Smart Cities projects are quite fashionable, and each City specializes in a research area. Thus, Nantes in the west of France is the pioneer city in open data, thanks in particular to the launch of an application, “Nantes in my pocket”, allowing access to all kinds of information about the city, in real time. The city of Issy-les-Moulineaux, in the suburb of Paris, for its part, set up the IssyGrid project, the first smart district grid in France, notably thanks to the control of its electricity consumption. This project has given rise to two eco-districts (Fort d’Issy and Bords-de-Seine), where today live about 3500 inhabitants. Eco-responsible thanks in particular to 500 m2 of photovoltaic panels, these quarters are largely delivered from cars. But the Golden Palm is returning to the city of Lyon: a pioneer in smart grids, involved in numerous projects to provide users with new services around the city, while building entire districts according to the rules of energy transition. Many inspiring ideas about what tomorrow’s smart cities might look like!

The Value of Smart Cities

The Value of Smart Cities 501 318 Remoticom BV

The best smart technologies work in the background seamlessly improving the day-to-day experiences of citizens.

When you think of smart cities, one of the first things that springs to mind is autonomous vehicles driving along a wide expanse of road – but what about the smaller, more subtle technology that allows cars to drive and park themselves without being preyed upon by parking enforcement officers.

There has been a lot of talk in the media around smart cities, with London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, announcing last month that he wanted the capital to become the world’s leading ‘Smart City’, calling on the tech community to help improve public services and solve social and environmental challenges faced. Yet sweeping statements such as this still leaves people confused as to what a ‘Smart City’ is.

6 of the smartest ‘smart’ cities of the world

6 of the smartest ‘smart’ cities of the world 900 370 Remoticom BV

Although cities generate 80 percent of the world’s wealth, they are increasingly getting serious economic, social, demographic and environmental challenges. In 2050 lives 70 procent of the world population in cities and rapid urbanization and aging will cause increasing pressure on energy, infrastructure, transport and healthcare in the future. To address these challenges, cities need to implement new technologies.

No future scenario anymore

The smart city has long been no future scenario anymore. There are already a lot of them and they grow fast, keeping pace with the expansion of the Internet of Things.

11 Internet of Things Stats That Will Blow You Away 580 387 Remoticom BV

The Internet of Things (or IoT) sounds like one of those futuristic buzzwords that’s still just a little too far off to think much about. But the IoT — where once-unconnected things like watches, cars, healthcare equipment, etc. will be connected to the Internet — is already here, and it’s changing our health, how we build things, and how we get around, and creating billions of dollars in value across multiple sectors.

So let’s take a look at some of the most mind-blowing IoT stats and why all of it matters for investors.
