17~18th Biologics World Korea 2013 Seoul, Korea (17-18 April 2013 | Songdo Convensia Center, Incheon, Korea)
Songdo in South Korea, is – for many – the poster boy of the smart city. The $35bn (£23bn) project, located on reclaimed land near the Yellow Sea, was widely considered to be a model for smart cities around the globe when it was started in 2005.
Also known as a ubiquitous city or U-city, Songdo’s information systems are all linked to each other. It has led critics to dub it a “city in a box” – a showcase for technology but not necessarily the ideal city for people.
Sensors are on everything in Songdo – for example, escalators only move when someone is on them.
Every home has a telepresence system built in like a dishwasher. As well as allowing users to control the heating systems and locks, it offers video conferencing and is intended as a way to deliver education, health care and government services.
Offices and schools are also connected to the network.
The digital mastermind behind Songdo is Cisco, which supplies all the network-based technologies.
The city is due for completion in 2015, by which time it will be home to 65,000 people and 300,000 workers.
