Evolution of Smart City: Six Pain Points to be Solved Urgently
2024-04-19


From the "digital city" to the "smart city" which is now blooming everywhere, it is not difficult to see that in the period of accelerated urbanization and increasingly severe urban disease in our country, realizing sustainable urban development and building smart city has become an irreversible historical trend of urban development.

According to the data released by Prospective Industry Research Institute, 95% of the sub-provincial cities and 83% of the prefectural cities in China, totaling more than 500 cities, have put forward the construction of smart cities in the government's work plan. The number of intelligent cities built and under construction in China is expected to exceed 500.

The construction of smart cities in China started early and achieved quick results. The network information technology, such as information collection, network transmission, information processing, information development and application, is in the leading international level. At present, most cities have completed the first and second phases of the construction of smart cities, that is, digitalization and networking. Some cities have moved towards the stage of intellectualization and intellectualization. But it is undeniable that there are also many painful points in the construction of new intelligent city at this stage, which need to be solved urgently.

1. attach importance to concept hype and despise concept renewal

Although the concept of smart city has attracted attention from all walks of life, almost all government reports can see the reference of building smart city, but the concept of smart city construction is old, the connotation is vague, and even the construction of smart city is equated with urban informatization.

2. Emphasizing Hardware Investment and Despising Application Development

Wisdom city construction is often equated with building networks, installing probes, or enthusiastic about building cloud storage and cloud computing centers. However, there is insufficient attention and investment on how to promote the development of application software step by step.

3. Emphasizing Data Acquisition and Despising Platform Construction

Each Department of a city often does its own thing. Information islands exist widely. It is difficult to interconnect and communicate with each other, and it is difficult to build a data sharing platform.

4. Pay attention to technological research and development and despise humanistic connotations

Intelligent city can not be separated from the support of the new generation of network information technology. In the initial stage of construction, network infrastructure construction must go ahead. However, the essence of smart city is that human wisdom drives urban development. If we leave the connotations of art and Humanities and Social Sciences and simply follow the line of technology supremacy, we will surely give up the original and go to the end.

5.  Emphasizing the Government's Leadership and Despising Market Power


Intelligent city construction is a huge system engineering, which has dual attributes of providing public goods and private goods. In the early stage of construction, it is necessary for the government to guide, but the government can not always take all the measures. Diversified financing and participation of diversified subjects should be carried out according to the attributes of construction projects. The government should be responsible for top-level design, rule-making and project construction in non-market areas. Profit-making projects can be built by enterprises and social investment models to ensure the sustainability of smart city construction.

6. Pay attention to project construction and despise top-level design

The lack of top-level design and the enthusiasm for single project construction often lead to the lack of organic links between projects, which violates the organic law of smart cities and tends to be fragmented, thus reducing the efficiency and efficiency of smart city construction.


There is a long way to go in building a wise city in China. Only by facing up to the bottlenecks and finding the pain points, can we solve the pain points and difficulties in the construction of smart cities, seize the opportunities and overcome the challenges, and accelerate the construction of new smart cities.
