Dubai’s Next Ace: Becoming the Scholar of Smart Cities

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Investvine+2015+Dubai+Smart+CityNo stranger to pioneering firsts, the government of Dubai has embarked on a mission to create the “smartest city in the world.”

In the report Dubai’s Next Ace: Becoming the scholar of smart cities, Investvine takes a comprehensive look at this ambitious vision through interviews with the leaders spearheading its founding strategic initiatives, as well as renowned experts in the revolutionary technology necessary to make such bold urban transformation possible, such as Big Data, open data platforms, Internet of Things, self-driving vehicles and intellectual infrastructure conducive to entrepreneurialism.

“The smart city project helps immensely shape a knowledge-based economy through facilitating innovation, research and development, while also encouraging the growth of various value-added sectors that will strengthen the country’s reputation as an enabling business environment,” says H.E. Sultan bin Saeed Al Mansouri, the UAE’s Minister of Economy, in the report.

An across-the-board look at the guiding themes that the Dubai Smart Government (DSG) is using to propel transformation of the emirate’s first phase of transformation, which leads up to 2017, is outlined. “In essence, the Dubai government aims to become a world-class smart government for the 21st century through a smart transformation strategy, known as SG21, with four main strategic themes, namely smart connected services, lean administration, open government and enabling the urban environment,” says the DSG’s Director-General, His Excellency Ahmad bin Humaidan.

The report includes articles with commentary from David McClure, founder and CEO of 500 Startups; Andreas Weigend, former Chief Scientist at Amazon (open data expert); Mickey McManus, principal of MAYA Design and co-author of Trillions (Internet of Things expert); Dr. Ryan Chin, Managing Director of the City Science Initiative at MIT Media Lab (self-driving vehicle and urban mobility expert); and Ken Singer, Managing Director of the Center of Entrepreneurship at UC Berkeley (entrepreneurial mindset expert); Nina Curley, Managing Director of Flat6Labs Abu Dhabi (startup accelerator expert).

Through an alchemy of these leaders of government and technology and innovation, Investvine’s report on Dubai’s citizen-led smart city vision is hitherto one of the most systematic works on what it truly means to be a “smart” city.
