INSPIRING LECTURE

The Future of the Smart City and Smart Governance

All technologies come together in the promise of tomorrow: the smart government. Cities and countries become ‘systems of systems’. The ‘Omega generation’ is at the helm and the future is in sight. Which type of culture, organisation and measures are needed to bring our country to the next level? Are you ready?

A smart government as a prerequisite for progress. Smart government is coming. With smart cities that adapt to the needs of their citizens and future-proof energy systems. A government that gives citizens of the future the space for decision making. A government that uses and stimulates technology, that can protect and release, even in the new world. Shall we work at it together? This lecture can be combined with ‘Organisation of the future’. It can also be customised on request.

Data-driven smart city systems are reshaping the future of urban centres. Indeed, the cities of the future are dotted with wireless sensors that track everything from weather to power supply to traffic. Their goal is to provide unparalleled efficiency and an ease of use unseen today.

Topics that will be covered during the lecture

Crowdsourcing-2

Crowdsourcing

Crowdsourcing, a distributed online production and problem-solving model, has been gaining popularity as a public participation tool for planning and governance, but also as a way to process large volumes of data or build common resources for the improvement of government functions. Public participation is a natural extension of the democratic process in which citizens are actively engaged in governing themselves.
cyber-security

Cybersecurity

The fast pace of urbanisation has led to cities implementing ‘smart city’ programs. Often blithely unsecured, these globally connected economic, political and social sub-systems have increased the vulnerability of a city’s security. As a result, we need to develop innovative technologies and solutions to minimise risk. Examples are increased surveillance, intelligent threat detection, simulation modelling and crime protection, biometrics and proactive antivirus protection.

Energy revolution

The convergence between digital technology and the world of energy, or Energy 3.0, will pave the way for a new ecosystem of services that will enable reduced energy consumption and lead to better quality of life within cities. The energy sector will see more and more citizens generating their own sustainable energy, adapting it to their personal requirements and sharing the surplus with others.

Citizen of the future

The next years of civic governance require increased citizen participation, innovation projects and hackathons that generate new ideas and new opportunities to increase government responsiveness and efficiency. With involvement from the citizen of the future, we can live in neighbourhoods that improve our health and build more resilient communities, more creative societies and economies that are adapted to 21st century work.

Smart government

The concept of smart government depends on communication networks and consolidated information systems. Smart government focuses on efficiency, transparency, sustainability and security. It is data driven, citizen-centric and performance focused. It makes use of innovative technology, business models and policies to address service, financial and environmental challenges.

Smart cities

A smart city interacts with its citizens to increase quality of life. It is driven by emerging technologies like machine learning, data analytics, sensor technology and the IoT that help optimise water usage, emergency response, electricity usage, traffic flow and public transportation. A smart city is data-driven, allowing services and systems to respond in real time.

Company of the future

The company of the future is hyper connected. It closely monitors new developments and collaborates with startups, scientists and universities. It uses smart algorithms to analyse the world and employs a flexible workforce capable of rapidly developing new products, services or processes and offering support on complex issues. The company of the future requires accessible leaders who inspire, have new visions and are prepared to veer off the beaten track.

Afterwards everyone was enthusiastic. Not only because of the way you illustrated the generic trends but also because of the way you applied them to the agricultural and livestock industry - the market in which De Heus operates.
