SIBB Delegation started in Katowice at World Urban Forum 11 organized for the first time in this part of the world. 17 000 participants from 155 countries. Among them 12 participants from SIBB group. Smart City concept can’t be implemented without solutions and innovations brought by business. Among many topics tackled during 4 days forum digital solutions were also visible. Usage of digital twins for sustainable city management was an interesting case from Korea.
Another important aspect for the cities is implementation of AI Strategies on municipal level. If cities want to align their development visions with development of AI it is time to think about proper regulations and incorporation onto existing strategies and policies.
The Federal Government of Germany had a special zone at the venue, where many interesting discussions have been held #germany4liveability
