Smart Cities Accelerators

A Smart City (or community) uses Information and Control Technology (ICT) to improve the efficiency of government and civic services to better meet residents’ needs. Smart Cities are about more than just sensors, data and analytics – the goal of Smart City development is to enhance how citizens live and work as well as to enable sustainability of the place and community.

A Smart City is a self-aware, introspective entity that engages its populace in creating a better quality of life. Smart Cities actively ask the important question: “How do we better serve our citizens?” And, focusing on quality of life and work, smart communities harness technology to provide answers and service as unique as each city, answers vital to the continued growth and satisfaction of the community.
