Exploring Low-tech Ways to Make Cities Progress
We imagine a “smart city” as a modern city, using data, algorithms and cutting-edge technologies to adapt and improve its services and infrastructures. But does being “smart” necessarily require costly, high-tech installations? Can high-tech and low-tech not only coexist, but complement one other? Can we make smart cities affordable worldwide? How, in particular, can developing and less-connected cities intelligently adapt and improve daily life? This World Majlis session seeks to answer these questions through a lively discussion session between diverse thought leaders, visionaries and changemakers.
