Professor Kiran Fernandes, the lead author of the white paper said, “This unprecedented movement towards urbanisation is growing at an exponential rate and is projected to be as high as 90% in some countries. Many cities are taking proactive steps to make their cities ‘digitised’ or ‘smarter’. Such initiatives are called ‘smart city’ initiatives and are primarily focused on using a collection of technologies to provide timely and effective services to citizens.”
Dinis Guarda the Chairman and CEO of Ztudium which commissioned the research and report said, “citiesabc IndexDNA framework is the first dynamic index for cities which incorporates the interaction between economy, mobility, education, environment, governance, and quality of life where the citizen is at the centre of the city initiatives and empowered by the 4IR Technologies.”
Hilton Supra the Vice Chairman of Ztudium said, “This report is a piece of academic literature which details the research and elaboration process behind the citiesabc IndexDNA index, explaining how different metrics and data are applied to create an index which reflects real-time smart city development through advanced analytics.”
