The world is firmly entrenched in the Information Age. Technology continues to reshape economies and societies amidst the fourth industrial revolution, and cities are rapidly deploying technology to address a wide range of urban challenges. The interplay of technology and innovation has already influenced urbanization patterns and is poised to further shape the future of cities. In this context, Covid-19 has taught us that we must increase the human experience when we talk about the cities of the future.

Now, rather than as a vision of the future, we will talk about it as a necessity of the present.
