Learn about the experience of smart city development from the members of Urban Technology Alliance (UTA) in this interview by Yuriy Nazarov, Head of Smart City UA initiative, Chairman of the Smart City Committee of the Public Council at the Ministry of Digital Transformation, with Dr. Levent Gürgen, president of the Urban Technology Alliance; the founder and president of the startup company Kentyou, France
The Urban Technology Alliance (UTA) is a global network of cities, industry and academics teamed up to organize city-scale pilot deployments to validate smart city solutions from technical, economic and societal perspectives.
UTA brings together a number of leading cities from all around the world that share the same smart city vision, giving high importance to testing and validating solutions prior to larger-scale deployments to avoid techno-push solutions and to focus on real city and citizen needs.
Even if each city has unique characteristics, many technical, economic, societal, and environmental challenges are common to all and can be addressed more efficiently if we mutualize our resources and share experiences and lessons learned.
With this common vision in mind, this talk covers examples of smart city experiences from its member cities.
