Smart city 2.0 framework

The smart city is experiencing rapid development in the last 10 years and has entered the stage of new development with smart city 2.0 framework"Later on, Nash Zhang, Public Security Expert from Overseas Business Center of Dahua Technology, made a detailed presentation on HOC. “The smart city is experiencing rapid development in the last 10 years and has entered the stage of new development with smart city 2.0 framework. However, many problems and challenges are remained unresolved. For example, the Passive Sensing and Partial Intelligence, the Data Island and severe network security threats are the main challenges. Meanwhile, how to effectively utilise the new city resource, "Data", to help the decision-making of urban construction and planning, has become a major subject,” said Zhang.

And we believe that the maturity of 5 great technologies, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data, Cloud Computing, IoT and 5G will enable the evolution of smart city 3.0 and bring great changes to our life.
