By 2050, 68% of the world's population will live in cities. This demographic trend, coupled with the increasing ubiquity of artificial intelligence applications in urban zones, surfaces the question: what is the future of cities in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, particularly for humans? The panel will explore the multiple cross-cutting issues of the nature of cities, work, social protection, and urban life in an age of technological disruption.
Over the next 15 years, the number of urbanites in global cities is expected to rise by 1.5 billion people. There is a pressing need to increase the efficiency of urbanization while reducing the associated costs. What innovations have proven successful in doing so? What are the best practices in city growth management?
“What makes cities come alive is the people that inhabit them,” said Bernise Ang, Co-founder and Executive Director of Zeroth Labs.
