We are living in an increasingly smart world. A world where applications, solutions, products and even entire industries are making innovative use of ICTs to improve the sustainability of our cities and businesses, the efficiency of our services and the quality of our lives. Smart technologies have the potential to radically change the way we live, work and organize our society, transforming everything from transport to electricity supply, financial services, urban planning, local government, health, education and manufacturing. But what will the smart society of the future look like? What have we learnt from the experience of countries and sectors at the cutting edge of this transformation? Can we identify the major stakeholders, the key players and the leading solutions? What is the smart dream & and how do we get there? This opening Leadership Summit session sets the scene for the next four days of Forum debate by exploring different visions of smart societies and identifying how best to turn smart digital transformation into global opportunity.
