Orator: Raphael Rollier, Responsible Programme Smart City, Swisscom



Swisscom and IMD Business School have developed a six steps methodology to turn a city "smart". This methodology will be illustrated with a successful project that encompasses the creation of a tool for urban planning. Swisscom's mobile phone network generates 20 billion data points daily that can be transformed into anonymized and aggregated traffic indicators. What are the concrete benefits for a city? How to deal with privacy concerns? Who are the stakeholders and which governance model should be put in place?
