In a smart city, "every single sector has to get technology fluent and it has to get digital fluent to drive long-term prosperity,". This is an issue that both the public and private sector need to get behind, and to transform how they think and how to get people ready for the jobs to solve these problems.
"We need new types of skills, new types of talent to make this happen. The agenda of cities is to attract the best companies and the best talent. Innovation, the ability to drive new business, the ability to drive new ways to bridge public and private sectors ... this is all part of the master plan for generating new smart cities,".
Before a city can become a smart city, it needs to first build out infrastructure. And this takes people who have the job skills to make it happen, both building the infrastructure and leveraging the data that is collected from the technology added to a city.
