Kaohsiung City is setting a new standard for sustainable urban development & better healthcare services by leveraging 5G and AIoT (Artificial Intelligence of Things) technologies. Aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, Kaohsiung’s vision for a smart city environment prioritizes both digital transformation and social well-being.

This ambitious plan integrates cutting-edge technologies like 5G and AIoT into public and private sectors, fostering digital governance and propelling industrial transformation. By promoting value-added traditional industries and establishing a hub for international export, Kaohsiung aims to create a unprecedented economic landscape.

Ultimately, Kaohsiung aspires to become a model city where citizens can flourish. Through this forward-thinking approach, Kaohsiung paves the way for a future where sustainability and social progress are intertwined.

Race Towards Net Zero – Charles Lin

The Kaohsiung Smart City movement is pioneered by the current Deputy Mayor, Charles Lin. He had specially mentioned how a city must adapt and change in order to fulfil the needs of its citizens. The interview session saw the demonstration of a “super app” that consolidates essential government services for citizens. For example, people can access healthcare services and manage their consolidated personal medical records. Similarly, farmers can use the app to connect with agricultural researchers and get advice. That is just the surface layer whereby citizens could “interact” with, there are still plenty of untold services that could be improved.

As highlighted, Kaohsiung contributes roughly 20% of Taiwan’s total carbon emissions due to its heavy industry. Hence, one of the other key goals highlighted at this year’s Kaohsiung Smart City & Summit Expo is achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. Charles believes that infrastructure development is crucial for reaching this target. The city is now embracing green energy and recycled water. With the help of technology, it aims to transform into a high-tech, sustainable city.
