Cities have already become testbeds for new and disruptive technologies, and are committed to building inclusive economies, attracting great talent, and increasing citizen quality of life. They are upending outdated models and legacy infrastructure to bring efficiency and transparency to “future-proof” their cities for the 4th Industrial Revolution.
