Big data platforms accelerate Hong Kong’s Smart City development
Home to Hong Kong’s first Smart Region, Hong Kong Science Park creates the ideal testbed for pushing forward Hong Kong’s Smart City vision, leveraging big data and Hong Kong’s attributes of dense population, efficiency, world-class ICT infrastructure and high Internet connectivity.
Science Park as a living laboratory supports and pilots innovative solutions and commercialisation of new technologies. We create collaborative platforms for data owners and application developers to co-create data applications that enable data-driven Smart City innovation in the areas of Smart Mobility, Smart Environment, Smart Living and Smart People. The data platforms provide the gateway to a wealth of machine readable data sets from industry and government.
Through a concerted approach to facilitate Smart City development, we aim to accelerate the R&D of core enabling technologies, including artificial intelligence, blockchain, cyber-security, big data analytics and edge computing, as well as create a sandbox for fintech solutions for different types of companies, from startups to mid-sized financial institutions.
