mpouraryan, very insightful thinking.  These are the true problems cities face and the things people care about.

Re: Smart City Forum (Thank You !!)
It is not only the technology but the information that supports cities in taking actions and being pro-active

@DHagar:

Can't agree more with you. Being pro-active is the real key. Because it was West Nile, Ebola earlier Zika in present and we never know what would come up in future. We need to have right talent engaged that can think upward and come up with a pro-active plan in every aspect. Having right resources available is another key factor. Then infrastructure and technology would make that path practically feasible.

Re: Smart City Forum (Thank You !!)
This is indeed where the beauty and wonder of technology can be the moral force for good.  From what I am reading up on it so far, it is a challenge--and I would argue the same would have held thru for Ebola that still seems to be a cause of grief and agony for Africa.

Re: Smart City Forum (Thank You !!)
mpouraryan, excellent thoughts!  It is encouraging and to see the commitments cities are making to move into this space.

Great question on the virus.  My opinion is that if you were able to share that information and identify the causes and exposure, it would certainly help to contain that.  The "Smart Cities" infrastructure provides that capability.  It is not only the technology but the information that supports cities in taking actions and being pro-active.

Re: Smart City Forum (Thank You !!)
 if in fact we had "smart cities", things like the #ZekaVirus could be better dealt with...

Interesting to know @mpouraryan.

This is not an impossible expecttaion I would say. We may be surprised to see some of the results.

Re: Smart City Forum (Thank You !!)
...As I was working away on my commitments to @DailyOutsider this morning, I reviewed updates from India on the cities that have "won" and will be part of the pilot.  Still trying to get my hands on it.   It is good to see the commitment on worldwide basis.    I could not help but wonder if in fact we had "smart cities", things like the #ZekaVirus could be better dealt with.

Re: Smart City Forum
ms.akkineni, thank you.  Yes, this potential role for cities is exciting and, as you point out, it provides an entirely new network for technology.  It can become the backbone for the mix between public/private services - a missing piece that is greatly needed.

Re: Smart City Forum
@mpouraryan:

Ofcourse there is absolutely no denial on the point you made about Core Principle behind the initiative. There should never be any attempt that dilutes the basic principle. If so there is serious doubt about value add. And that obviously is not what we are envisioning.

Bottom line is to target at value added living standards comparing to whatever present standards for a city or country.

Re: Smart City Forum
I totally concur that local realities have to be taken into account--no question.  But certain overriding principles must not be compromised on_-at it's core an appreciation for enhancing the quality of life for all the residents.   That, to me, should be the core.

Re: Smart City Forum
@mpouraryan:

You are right. Indian Govt also started Smart City initiative. But the conceptualisation of Smart City varies from city to city and country to country, depending on the level of development, willingness to change and reform, resources and aspirations of the city residents. A Smart City would have a different connotation in India than USA or Europe. Even in India, there is no one way of defining a Smart City. 

So the bench marks, metrics could be diffrent based on above mentioned criteria.
