Smart city today. How does the digitization of Russian cities help improve the quality of life?

Digital technologies have changed cities, bringing residents together into a single information field. They transformed our vision of mobility and gave instant access to a variety of services. The digital development of cities is directly linked to the quality of life in them: openness to innovation is reflected in the level of human capital, which in turn affects the quality of life. Digitalization has also affected urban governance. The state has automated processes through the opportunity to collect and analyze city data: the mobility of residents, their habits and needs. Technology has ensured transparency in public administration and financing, contributed to the development of the social sphere. Remote medical care and e-school are good examples.

  • How do digital services affect the quality of life and lifestyle of residents?
  • How do technologies impact urban processes - mobility, access to healthcare, communication with the government, etc.?
  • How do the key participants of the process - the state, telecommunications, financial and technology companies - see their role in the development and implementation of smart city solutions?
  • What elements of a smart city is Moscow planning to introduce at the next stage? How will artificial intelligence influence urban development?
