Insight from the 2016 Strategic Innovation Symposium Digital Life in Latin American Cities
Latin American hubs are establishing themselves as globally recognized cities of the future, from Buenos Aires to Medellin to São Paulo and beyond. By embracing technology and the Internet of Things (IoT), these blossoming Smart Cities will be more efficient, sustainable, comfortable and interactive, allowing citizens to enjoy an enhanced quality of life. The extraordinary potential of Smart Cities is being realized through the collaborative efforts of city governments, citizens, universities, and corporations. To foster further collaboration and discussion, we recently held the 2016 Strategic Innovation Symposium: Digital Life in Latin American Cities. The Symposium is the start of a conversation that will continue with future events in key cities around Latin America. Key learnings, which will inform global policy decisions that support local economies and their initiatives, are detailed in this report.
