ANDINA LINK SMARTCITIES
Not only cities can achieve a deep digital transformation in order to become “Smart”, it is also possible for regions and rural areas to undergo a significant digital transformation that improves the quality of life of their inhabitants.
However, although the digital transformation is the best possible strategy to face the present and future challenges of contemporary civilization, before resorting to the technological component, it is necessary to recognize and strengthen the multiple dimensions that make up the social fabric of the territories.
During the event, we will address multiple dimensions of Smart Territories, including regulatory, technological, social, environmental, economic, and commercial aspects, presenting an updated perspective of the present and future challenges.
This will be a space for reflection, analysis, debate and collaborative construction from an innovative, inclusive, diverse and responsible perspective on smart territories, in which Civil Society, Suppliers, Government, Industry and telecommunications operators will contribute to the digital transformation of our communities in Latin America.

THE FUTURE OF MOBILITY, SAFETY, HEALTH, EDUCATION AND ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY IN SMART TERRITORIES

The human factor is the main cause of automobile accidents. In the coming years, the automotive industry intends to ensure greater automation in vehicle driving and urban signaling, thereby improving safety and mobility in cities.
The public safety of the inhabitants is, perhaps, the greatest challenge faced by governments; a matter that, thanks to information and communication technologies, can be guaranteed in intelligent territories.
How can a city achieve much more efficient and safer mobility with the implementation of technology?
Is it possible to reduce the number of accidents through the use of technologies and artificial intelligence?

The adequate, efficient, and timely implementation of Smartcities does not depend so much on the size of the city, nor necessarily on the budget, but to a large extent on the timely vision and decision of its governors when choosing and integrating the technology that will transform and improve the quality of life of their localities. Rather, it consists of combining economic development with welfare, mobility, health, education, and the environment. In other words, the effective implementation of Smartcities is about planning in an efficient and timely manner.
