► The Infrastructure Backbone for Smart Cities

This podcast is sponsored by Lenovo and Intel.

Asia’s cities are booming, but they need to undergo massive technological transformation before they can provide adequate services to their rapidly growing urban populations. There is a profound disparity between the needs of cities in mature and developed economies, and technology and physical infrastructure is often the differentiating factor.

In this podcast, Director for High Performance Computing and AI at Lenovo Asia-Pacific Sinisa Nikolic takes us through a case study of how the city of Barcelona transformed several aspects of its living spaces from tourism to security. He also touches on some of the process and technology recommendations for cities to take into account when launching on a smart city program, and things a government or an enterprise needs to keep in mind to ensure that the infrastructure it builds is scalable for future-ready smart city projects that incorporate the 5G and IoT world that is coming.
