There are many definitions of smart cities; and the shortest one is a city that works. What does this mean? Smart city models include those from IBM, Boyd and McKinsey. Briefly using the EU Smart City Framework, this talk will cover the six areas of smart mobility, people, economy, environment and governance. The talk will also cover the challenges faced by mega cities, and provide examples of the different aspects of urban planning. Case studies include Copenhagen, Songdo, Tokyo and Singapore.
