Huawei showcased its Digital Platform based on leading new ICT including artificial intelligence (AI), internet of things (IoT), big data and cloud, enabling city-wide intelligence and sustainable development across the international smart city industry. The company offers solutions based on the platform covering municipal management, public safety and environmental protection, as well as smart transportation, smart government, smart education, and smart agriculture. These solutions are designed to facilitate city governance, improve public services, and enable industry innovation and best practices.
Digital technologies are becoming deeply embedded in all areas of many of today’s cities including urban governance, citizen life, public safety and industrial development. As a result, a smart city development race driven by the growing global digital economy is taking place around the world. Smart city adoption has undergone the first stage of breaking down data silos, the second stage of the rise of mobile Internet applications, and the third stage of IoT deployment for collection of mass volumes of city data. It is now at the fourth stage, where cities are improving their management capabilities through AI-enabled data mining, achieving the integration of digital technologies and city governance to promote sustainable city development.
