Smart City Challenges

Cities are challenged by rapid population growth, high resident expectations and, frequently, severe budget constraints. To keep residents happy while attracting jobs and investors, future cities will need to become smarter, optimizing technology to offer more efficient, sustainable, and livable environments.
