Two-thirds of global population will live in cities by 2050, as estimated by the UN. Today, around 55% of the world's population is thought to be living in an urban area or city, with that figure set to rise to 68% shortly. After a decade of experimentation, Smart Cities are now entering a new phase. Although they are only one part of the full tool kit for making a city great, digital solutions seem to be the most powerful and cost-effective additions to that tool kit in many years.
