Advantages of a Smart City
Smart cities can be described as cities capable of using information technology to create efficiencies and create sustainability, and improve the quality of life of it’s residents. A smart city is basically a living entity, capable of extraordinary adaptations that we once thought were not possible. This post will be discussing smart cities, including what makes a smart city, it’s benefits, it’s effects on the environment, and what negative effects, if any it might have on it’s citizens and the world as a whole.
Singapore: a Smart Nation
Singapore has made a quantum leap in the last few decades from being a regular country to being one of the most technologically advanced places in the whole world. As the country aged through the decades, it has incorporated technology into everything, essentially making it its major driving engine. From its water distribution to its impact on the environment, it has become a model country in the usefulness of technology.
As the concept of smart cities becomes more mainstream, it is difficult to ignore Singapore. Even before its Prime Minister announced the country’s new direction towards becoming the first Smart Nation, Internet of Things (Iot) technology has permeated the country, preparing it for the change.
More over, this push towards technology can be observerd in othe countries. For instance, India is developping smart cities such as Bhopal and Bhubaneswar.
Smart Nation Initiatives
You’ve heard of smartphones−devices that combine several solutions to the problems of the twenty-first century man into a single intuitive piece of technology small enough to put into your pocket. Now, the prime minister of Singapore, Minister Lee Hsien Loong has introduced an initiative that will make Singapore a Smart Nation. But what is a smart nation? And what exactly does it mean for Singapore and the world at large?

What is design thinking?
Design thinking is a modern non-linear approach to problem solving. It is about observing people’s behavior, immersing into the way they live and finding what aspects of their lives could be improved. Based on those observations, designers come up with ideas which are quickly turned into prototypes. Designers test, draw conclusions, make adjustments and iterate this process until the end-users’ needs are fulfilled.
