  • AE: Govts and vendors collaboration needed to bring smart cities to life

    There is a lot of discussions and demos of smart city technologies today that are enhancing the connectivity of everyday services. At the same time there are so many barriers to creating a truly smart city.

    What we are currently witnessing is disparate connected services; a patch of Wi-Fi coverage here, some contactless pay pads there. Until we can provide some more consistency in the connectivity we are providing across the city, two things will continue to happen:

    This was the main message of the 11th session of the Arab Thought Foundation (FIKR11) Conference.
