Dubai wants to be benchmark for smart cities

| October 19, 2015

Dubai wants to be the benchmark for smart cities globally, according to Dr Aisha Butti Bin Bishr, assistant director general of The Executive Office and SmartDubai taskforce leader.

According to Aisha, the goal is to create a connected and responsive citywide infrastructure that can cater for the demands of its residents and visitors. Applications include social, transportation, society, economy, governance and environment.

“Together with our partners, we are enabling Smart economic conditions, driving entrepreneurship and global competitiveness that will serve as a model for emerging nations,” said Aisha. “We are continually reviewing and refining the latest technology innovations, from mobile apps to drones, to understand how we may adopt these tools to make city experiences more seamless, safe, efficient and impactful for all.”

The Smart Dubai Initiative was launched with the support of VP and Prime Minister of the UAE and ruler of Dubai HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum with the goal to make Dubai the “smartest city in the world.”
