Smart Cities reflect the present and the future, combining technology, organization and connectivity, and providing a high level of comfort for their citizens, as well as providing better alternatives in emergency situations, such as the one we went through this year because of the COVID-19. Hyper-connected cities have the capacity to respond to emergencies much more efficiently with the help of technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Big Data and Internet of Things.
