With people around the world moving into cities and living increasingly connected lives, cities themselves will quickly need to get smart. But how, exactly, does one go about making a city smart?

pening data is the start of many smart city journeys. That open data, of course, should consist of information that the city has collected for years, which may be siloed offline — but it also needs to include data collected from new cameras and other sensors that are a part of other smart cities projects.
With the ubiquitous influence of artificial intelligence, our everyday life has entered the enchanted realm of hyper-connectivity. We live in a time of massive opportunity in the digital space, to lead better, easier and more connected lives.
Ecological, sustainable and pleasant to live, Smart Cities projects flourish in France and worldwide. Cities are studying, to a greater or lesser extent, projects related to several fields: sustainable development, energy, environment, quality of life, mobility & EV infrastructure, water or start-up.
