The world’s population is expected to reach 9.8 billion by 2050, with the urban population almost doubling to 6.3 billion. This extreme increase in urban population will bring about many challenges for society and people.
For instance, the rapid movement of people and things across borders and industries increases the risk of crime and terrorism. There is a greater need to find solutions through digital technology to tackle these rising challenges faced by cities.
