The city is showcasing its platform and e-government initiatives at CES 2020. These tools aim to provide citizens with the same real-time access to information as the mayor.
Seoul’s metropolitan government is showcasing its smart city platform and open government services at consumer tech show CES 2020 in Las Vegas this week.
Under the theme of “Seoul smart city and smart life”, it will be joined on the Seoul pavilion stand along with 20 technology start-up companies demonstrating their products and services.
The Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) claims its smart city platform is the world’s first digital administrative system.
Powered by information and communication technologies, the platform enables policy-makers to have a complete real-time view of what’s happening in the city and communicate directly with their staff in the field, according to SMG.
The intent is to provide citizens with the same real-time access to information as the mayor on transportation, disasters and air quality.
Based on the administrative philosophy that “citizens are the mayors”, SMG has publicly deployed the platform to its mobile website and digital information kiosks in metro stations.
The intent is to provide citizens with the same real-time access as the mayor to information on transportation, disasters, air quality, consumer prices, day-to-day matters and other available big data.
Among the start-ups exhibiting smart city technologies are:
In December, the Metropolitan Government announced its plans to deploy an enterprise-grade city-wide Internet of Things network. It is part of a larger plan by the city to increase its connectivity offerings and create one of the world’s first hyper-connected cities by 2022.
