If countries are to grow their economies, support growing populations and protect their environment, they need to transform their industry and urban environment. These two factors do not operate in isolation: For example, smart industry thrives on rapid, reliable transport and logistics every bit as much as the city does, while balancing electricity demands between industries and urban consumers can benefit both. Meanwhile, the shift to 5G opens up fresh use cases and the possibility of private networks for industrial and public-service users.
The challenges faced by industry and city in their digital development are similar, too. With the growth in IoT, questions about how to make the best use of the data, how and when to share are omnipresent. Meanwhile, digital-native companies need to adjust the way they think and do business with government and industry alike, in order to succeed in a world that crosses the physical-digital divide.
This Summit focuses on critical questions faced in both industrial and urban transformation, shedding light on
- Smart city planning and industrial transformation
- Next-generation transport and logistics
- Data usage and management
- The emerging service ecosystem and the role of the telco alongside smart cities and smart industry
11:00 – 11:45 The Vision of Smart City and Smart Industry
This session will discuss future smart city and industry frameworks, technology and ecosystem, and also discuss how industrial digitalization will relate to city development in the future.
11:45 – 12:30 How to Make a City Smarter?
Smart city development requires a collaborative work, which cannot be achieved alone by any single department, or a company. This session will discuss how we try the different approaches to make city more efficient and smarter.
12:30 – 13:30 Lunch Break
13:30 – 14:15 Next-generation City Transport and Industry logistics
Transportation remains the top challenge for the city, while the flow of goods in just-in-time supply chains depends on a solid transport system. This session will discuss how public and private sectors can partner together to tackle the challenges of keeping people and goods moving smoothly, and the technical and financial solutions that can help.
14:15 – 15:00 Data Usage and Management for City and Industry
When everything is intelligently connected, a large amount of data is generated. Increasingly, managing and using the data effectively is an opportunity and challenge for city and for industry.
15:00 – 15:30 Tea Break
15:30 – 17:30 The emerging service ecosystem and the role of the telco alongside smart cities and smart industry
17:30 Session Closing Remarks
