Business Chief, a leading US-based digital media resource focused on business and industry-specific news, has ranked Dubai fourth in its list of ‘Top 10 Smartest Cities Worldwide’. In selecting 10 of the smartest cities across the globe, Business Chief noted that smart cities use ICT technologies to fuel smarter and more sustainable development practices, such as transportation networks, water supply, and heating, as well as promoting safer urban spaces.
“Dubai recently went through a seven-year plan to digitally transform all government and economic services, including communications, urban planning, transportation and many more. Most of these services are now digitised and accessible to citizens through the DubaiNow app. AI is being utilised in the transportation sector and has helped significantly reduce fatigue-related traffic collisions. Automation has been leveraged by the police, and the city already has three autonomous police stations.”
