2018 will be the France-Singapore Year of Innovation. Both countries will create synergies between their innovation ecosystems, including programs that promote R&D and support entrepreneurship, to transform their economies and societies for the benefit of their citizens.

French and Singaporean agencies, enterprises, public and private research organizations and institutions of higher learning are already actively engaged in collaborative projects in a number of identified areas.  Among these topics is Smart Cities and sustainable development.  French-headquartered Dassault Systèmes is among the companies already actively involved in working on innovative projects in Singapore.

Virtual Singapore is based on DS’s belief that the best way to address the challenges of urbanization is to put people at the heart of the renewal process. People are constantly generating data, and city planners can harness and analyze that data to create intelligent cities that better meet the ever-changing needs of citizens.  Virtual Singapore will map and analyze big data points to simulate scenarios and solutions for everything from disaster evacuation to finding an apartment to helping the disabled virtually plan optimal routes. The data can also be used to create better buildings and more sustainable green spaces.  All of this can be tested virtually to ensure it’s on target to improve the lives of the people.

The Reimagining of Cities

The last half-century has seen massive growth in urban populations. This trend is expected to continue: experts predict 6.5 billion people will live in cities by 2050. And with all cities covering less than 3% of Earth, overpopulation, overpollution and overburdened infrastructure create significant challenges.

make” – @BernardCharles @Dassault3DS #urbanplanning

To address this will require a radical rethinking of our relationship with, and to, urban environments, as well as a shift in mindset within the architecture, engineering and construction industries.

Whether you live in a city or a different type of area, most likely you’ve thought about things you wish you could change. Maybe you think there should be a traffic light in a place that is missing one. Or an easier way to find a parking space, or a new place to live. Technology is now allowing everyday citizens to have this type of influence, and Singapore is leading the way.

Check out this 1-minute video to get a taste of what is happening in a project called Virtual Singapore:

In today’s world, people are constantly generating data. If planners can harness and analyze that data, they can create intelligent cities that better meet the ever-changing needs of citizens.

When completed in 2018, users of Virtual Singapore will be able to map and analyze big data points to simulate scenarios and solutions for everything from disaster evacuation to finding an apartment.

Virtual Singapore will help inform people about where to get the best mobile phone coverage, or allow disabled people to virtually plan an optimal route before venturing out into the streets. Firms can use the information to create better buildings – not just by adding amenities for those living or working in them, but even to architect a specific design to improve air flow throughout the city. Data can also help better identify sun patterns to create more sustainable green spaces. And all of this can be tested (and retested) virtually to help get it just right.

Dassault Systèmes, in conjunction with CNBC Catalyst Content Studio, created an in-depth look at the future of cities, including the need to find equilibrium between government, private business and the public to make these areas successful.

The content – which includes interactive graphics, videos and articles – also explores how 3D printing is being applied to quickly build apartment buildings to meet the burgeoning urban populations.

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.

3DS_2016_Compass_City_webDassault 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.
