— — Data-driven smart city construction practice
Innovative practices and experiences of new smart cities
The construction of a new smart city regards data as the key. Through ownership division, the data of various departments in the city is collected and managed; through the data centre, the application scenarios of the city are aggregated to fully release the value of data. In addition, based on practices and ideas in smart cities, the construction and operation of smart cities need to cover four dimensions of capabilities, including top-level design capabilities, data platform construction capabilities, smart city application development capabilities, and ecological enabling capabilities. CyberVein has full-stack capabilities for smart city construction and operation by using DAVE to build a new type of smart city. The following analysis has been made from five dimensions.
1. Top-level design capabilities: using big data to find an outlet for smart cities
Missing top-level design: Due to blind construction, smart city construction is repetitive and out of touch with urban development goals, wasting a lot of storage and computing resources. Operating independently, each department lacks unified standards and departmental coordination, which leads to chaos and low quality.
As the product of the combination of sustainable development and information technology, smart cities are the new goals and new models of urban development in the current world. In recent years, big data technology has developed vigorously, and big data applications have become increasingly widespread. Taking big data as the core, CyberVein collects, stores, develops, and analyses data together to realize the value of data and achieve capitalization, so as to discover new knowledge, create new value, and enhance new abilities. CyberVein will strive for a new generation of information technology and service formats, making “a thousand cities with a thousand faces”.
2. Building capacity of data centre: use data to drive urban management and development
Data islands are common: Fragmented systems and digital intelligence construction lead to data fragmentation and separation of algorithms. Subject to departmental barriers and vertical accumulation of various business units, a negative chimney system is formed; data island is widespread because of lack of unified data standards, data integration and sharing.
Founded in 2017, CyberVein has realized that data centre plays a vital role in the digital transformation and sustainable development of an enterprise. Previously, the core technologies of smart cities included artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, big data, and cloud computing, while new information technologies such as blockchain and 5G have been added to the list. CyberVein is actively involved in blockchain, artificial intelligence and big data, supporting the DAVE smart city solution.
Furthermore, the PISR database of DAVE can be understood as a data centre. The alliance chain is used to build an open, flexible, and scalable platform of enterprise-level unified data management and analysis, which connects internal and external data on demand and conducts data cooperation with external parties. Business value will be released, making DAVE the centre of enterprise data asset management.
In addition to using the PISR database, you can choose to use the Citrix distributed computing platform and AI federated learning to learn big data intelligent analysis, data visualization and other technologies to manage data catalogue, model, standard, accountability, security, visualization and sharing. You can also storage, process, classify and manage date in a better way, establishing a big data analysis library and an algorithm service library. Additionally, report generation automation, data analysis agility and data mining visualization will be achieved, paving way for implementing digital transformation of enterprises.
3. Development capabilities of smart city application: data resource development and utilization
Lack of application and operation capabilities: The construction of smart cities lacks unified technologies and standards, and the implementation of the main body information exchange and subsequent operations is difficult; smart city application scenarios are numerous and scattered, and the organizational structure restricts business collaboration, leading to out-of-focus operations; it is difficult to expand the application of digital intelligence due to insufficient digital intelligence.
In the era of big data, only with the ability to develop and utilize urban data resources can other capabilities truly play a role. CyberVein forms a brand-new urban construction and management model based on massive information and intelligent filtering processing, managing production and life in a more refined and dynamic way and realizing intelligent management and operation of cities, in order to enhance the comprehensive competitiveness of the city and the quality of life of citizens.
We aim to help city managers to strengthen demand analysis and big data model design around “Internet + government services”, medical and health, environmental protection, transportation and logistics, cultural tourism, etc., to promote the development and utilization of urban big data, and improve public management services and decision-making capacity. We also strive for providing enterprise users with application development capabilities covering multiple scenarios such as retail, manufacturing, logistics, cultural tourism, smart travel, and smart cities.
Guided by urban governance and people’s livelihood services, we will speed up the construction of data standardization and standardization, improve related management systems, strengthen the construction of data collection channels and the rapid aggregation of urban data, and in particular strengthen the integration of government data and social data, all for establishing a perfect city data resource pool with interconnection and openness.
4. Ecological cultivation and empowerment: digital transformation of industrial clusters
Pull effect of industry is weak: At present, most of the smart city projects are directly invested and constructed by the government, and there has been no suitable model for attracting the participation of enterprises and social forces. It is urgent to cultivate new industries and new ecology to stimulate vitality.
Data shows that China alone has more than 70 billion-dollar industrial clusters. If digital transformation can expand 10% of the industrial value space, more than 300 billion US dollars of value can be created every year. Throughout the world, digital transformation and upgrading is of great significance to the future development of industrial clusters, and it is of great value to driving SMEs to bridge the digital divide.
Only advanced digital technologies and services can help regional industrial clusters in the construction of digital ecology, talent training, digital innovation, digital supply chain and emerging business formats, thereby comprehensively driving SMEs to cross the digital divide and enhance risk resistance and resilience growth. The potential in the “digital fertile soil” will be radiated to drive a new round of growth in the digital economy.
The reconstruction path of smart city
1. Digitization: Centre on scenarios and service capabilities, unify plans of basic resources such as storage, computing, and network, centralise management and deploy flexibly.
2. Servicing: Sort out the public capabilities required by smart cities based on scenarios, forming services to avoid repeated low-level construction.
3. Valuation: Start from the value scenarios that break through traditional urban governance services and promote the development of urban industries, planning the path of smart city construction.
As an important element of a smart city, data is not simply stacked, but should be effectively connected and deeply integrated. From the perspective of resources, big data is a unique new strategic resource, and also a mixture of new resources, new technologies, and new ideas. At present, the world is beginning to re-examine the value of data. In the digital city era, data is not simply about mapping from the physical era to the virtual era, but how to use the acquired data to reverse to the city, using the data to drive the modernization of urban governance, the intelligence of industrial development, and the convenience of people’s livelihood.
