Today’s cities consume as much as 75% of natural resources, 70% of global energy consumption and energy-related carbon emissions—and are growing at a rate of 1.3 million people each week.
To grow cities more responsibly, sustainably and satisfyingly for residents, government leaders from around the world are coming together to discuss shared challenges, and potential solutions, at the 2016 World Cities Summit.
The summit, scheduled for July 10-14, 2016, welcomes to Singapore leaders of some of the world’s most forward-thinking cities, as well as academics, AEC professionals and other industry experts to discuss city challenges and share solutions.
Under the theme Livable & Sustainable Cities: Innovative Cities of Opportunity, the event is a platform for discussions of how cities can perform long-term planning in a way that better serves their residents, and improves resilience, through policy, new technology and social innovation.
Several presentations are set to highlight the benefits that can be reaped from using technology to develop smart cities. Smart cities integrate physical, digital and human systems to deliver benefits that include healthier ecosystems, safer cities, and even greater comfort for residents. Other sessions will discuss the ways in which governments can work together with the private sector to apply smart city technology in a way that broadens both financial and social improvements, or how to harness smart sensors to create these smart cities.
Dassault Systèmes, a proud sponsor of the World Cities Summit, will be highlighting how to create a clone of a city with 3DEXPERIENCE® City. The event provides the perfect forum for highlighting the technology for analyzing data to manage city services and resources.
Singapore has been using this technology to create a digital equivalent, a Virtual Singapore.
The digital city uses real-time feedback that is helping city planners to optimally grow their city to meet the needs of an ever-increasing population.
City planners can also use the data to simulate “what if” scenarios before making real changes to infrastructure.
The 2016 World Cities Summit is set to take place July 10-14 at the Sands Expo & Convention Centre in Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.
