Clayton will be speaking at this Summit as the
Economic development in a digital metropolis
“The next wave of economic growth is upon us. City leaders who invest in the
infrastructure to support it will enable all of their citizens to participate, making life
better for all. Why is digital infrastructure the open road to growth and economic prosperity
within cities? How can city leaders leverage digital infrastructure to attract investment, increase
jobs and growth, and revitalize their city?”
Here is the byline on the rest of the conference
With the pace of digital disruption, we are now seeing a shift away from smart cities to Cities 4.0.
Cities 4.0 is what happens when the digital disruptive trends of automation, IoT, cloud computing, virtual reality, 3D modeling,
and other cyber-physical systems come together to fundamentally change city planning, design, construction, governance,
financing and operations.
Cities 4.0 will become the norm in a world where intelligent ICT-based machines, systems and networks are capable of
independently exchanging and responding to information to manage city processes and systems – coupled with new sharing
economy business models and smart analytics that put the consumer or citizen at the center of these interactions.
The city is now the new innovation platform – it is the engine room where new industries, businesses, and start-ups are being
At the heart of this is collaboration – when smart people are combined with emerging sharing economy business models that
leverage the internet, IoT, mobile to social technologies, the opportunities are endless.
Yet, while cities 4.0 offers unparalleled opportunities to enhance efficiency, improve public safety, and support development, it
also presents several important challenges that cities will have to negotiate in order to realize these benefits.
