The cities in 2021? They’ll be smarter
The rapid urbanization forced Chinese cities to face huge challenges that smart solutions can help solve without sacrificing the wellbeing, from traffic management to environmental protection, to economic growth. And China is a master in creating the future, as the government began experimenting with the first Smart City project in 90 cities back in 2012. In 2020 the e-government services played an even more central role in containing and reducing the pandemic contagion in Shenzhen, activating a rapid self-declaration system, thus allowing a health quick response to the emergency.
The lessons learnt in this rough 2020 will turn into trends in 2021: in the first position, there is the strongly emerging internet-based healthcare, a new branch of the hospital healthcare. Another news in tech are robotic deliveries: progress in robotics, GPS and automation are making easier and practical for companies to substitute human delivery guys with robots. The sector is experiencing a surge in China, as the top technology-providing companies enabling industry automation with A.I. and robotics include the Chinese UBTech Robotics and Roobo. This one applies A.I. to education, combining tech with teaching and research innovation to improve educational resources and quality of teaching, ensuring learning results. The start-ups turned unicorns Ofo, Mobike and Hellobike, instead, are operating in the future in transportation: already successful in China and beyond with their bike-sharing platforms, we expect them to enhance other micromobility services in the new year.
