Yesterday, I gave a lecture as part of a seminar organized by Kharazmi University (Tehran, Iran), together with the CEO of the Smart City of Tehran, Dr. Mohamad Farjood. My lecture focused on the changing management model of our cities, thanks to technologies, such as AI, IoT, Blockchain, Edge Computing, etc. and any other tech that boasts of being intelligent or smart.
I have reviewed several of the projects that we’re working on in Doha, Istanbul, Tenerife, Barcelona, Panama, Manizales, etc. and have also had the chance to learn first-hand about the projects that Dr. Farjood is leading in Tehran. We both understand that good data and knowledge management can significantly improve life in our cities, in terms of safety, pollution, mobility, health, etc. and we have been able to see these changes happen.
Excellent achievements are being made in Tehran, with Dr. Farjood at the helm.
Thank you Prof. Tousefi and Dr. Tahaci for organizing this event.
Here is a short video with a recap of the conference.
