Under the guidance of technology, are we still far from smart cities?
Smart cities have become an inevitable trend of urban development, and the continuous advancement of policies has also promoted the sustainable development of smart city construction. From December 8th to 10th, the 2021 Digital Shaanxi Construction Summit Forum was held in Tongchuan Building as scheduled. HKUST Xunfei Company participated in this forum as a representative of the company, showing the scientific and technological achievements of HKUST Xunfei to the public on the spot, discussing the future trend of digital economy innovation with provincial and municipal leaders, experts and scholars, industry leaders and relevant business leaders, and communicating and promoting together Digital and industry are deeply integrated to create a new engine for industrial development and provide advice and suggestions for promoting the high-quality development of Shaanxi’s digital economy.
It is understood that in June this year, HKUST Xunfei Company was deeply involved in the second phase of Tongchuan’s new smart city construction. With the systematic thinking of co-construction, sharing, and common use, it integrates the advantages of AI technology to empower Tongchuan education, medical and people’s livelihood applications. Focus on the construction of “digital base” and the expansion of “scene application” to contribute to urban construction.
AI middle station builds intelligent transformation technology leadership and underlying support
The smart city AI middle station is a new generation of infrastructure supporting the high-quality development of Tongchuan City. The platform uses “digital base” thinking to collaborate with governments and enterprises to create a new smart city ecology, and will combine real-time and full urban data resources to continuously optimize innovative applications in the economic, cultural, social, and ecological fields of Tongchuan, and improve the modernization of the social governance system and governance capabilities .
Smart education makes teaching more efficient and accurate
Based on the concept of “high-quality and balanced, improved quality and efficiency, and innovative leadership”, Smart Education has innovated and created products such as teaching big data analysis platform, smart classroom, teacher preparation assistant, new college entrance examination system, and big data precision teaching system.
In Chaoyang Experimental Primary School in Tongchuan City, teachers are using smart classrooms to teach students, and through the deep integration of high-quality Internet resources with classroom links, the feedback on learning is more timely and the classroom more flexible and efficient. After incorporating the new elements, the students are more motivated to attend the class, the atmosphere of the whole class is active, and the mastery of knowledge is more solid, so that the students can really learn in joy.
In the past few years, through DynaSky’s “endogenous and externalization”, Lenovo has been committed to intelligently reengineering the entire value chain of research and development, supply chain management, manufacturing, marketing, and after-sales service. All enterprises with intelligent element assets rely on their deep technical reserves and strength to apply intelligent transformation solutions to areas such as smart cities.
In this Smart China Tour in Guangzhou, Lenovo demonstrated its smart city benchmark case-Wenchang “Smart City”. As the general service provider, Lenovo provides full-cycle services from top-level design to delivery for the construction of Wenchang Smart City. After several years, it has pushed Wenchang’s urban management, education, and agricultural intelligence to a new level. It is worth mentioning that in the entire smart city project, Lenovo’s smart education solution for Wenchang won the 2020 “IDC Asia Pacific Smart City Award”, becoming one of only three award-winning projects in mainland China.
With the implementation of the national “dual-carbon” strategy, the construction of smart cities has entered a new stage of green and low-carbon development in the 3.0+ era. To reduce carbon in cities, energy must be green and smart. Yuan Shuxin emphasized that Lenovo, as a new type of smart city operation service provider, will focus on “new IT” + “green energy” to make smart cities simpler and greener.
In the “Lenovo Green Smart City Solution” released this year, Lenovo proposed the “three, two, one” green smart city construction ideas, namely: in the three scenarios of green smart parks, green smart transportation and green infrastructure, based on The two technical architectures of the city’s “end-side cloud and network intelligence” smart technology architecture and the city’s “source network load storage and control” green energy architecture help city managers to plan for carbon emissions in a unified way through the powerful “City Smart Cube” operating platform. Matching, tracking carbon trajectory, assessing carbon intensity, and monitoring the degree of carbon emissions, helping to build a zero-carbon smart city.
Based on this idea, Lenovo built the “Beijing Yanqing Energy Internet Green Cloud Computing Center” for Beijing Yanqing. With the concept of efficient use of energy and sustainable development, Lenovo relies on its leading big data processing and supercomputing capabilities to bless the cloud computing center through more than 50 energy-saving patented technologies, adding wisdom and green to Yanqing.
In the future, Lenovo will accelerate the internalization and externalization of DynaSky Engine, continue to iterate and enrich smart city solutions, with the goal of “precise perception, timely processing, reliable transmission, cloud processing, high-quality services, security and stability” to promote the development of Chinese cities. Intelligent, green and sustainable development.
2021 is the first year of the 14th Five-Year Plan. With the application of new technologies such as 5G, big data, and artificial intelligence, as well as the advancement of “new infrastructure”, it will bring new opportunities and challenges to the construction of smart cities. As the Chinese government pays more attention to the construction of smart cities, the scale of investment in smart cities in my country continues to grow. According to the “Global Smart City Expenditure Guide” issued by IDC in July 2020, in 2020, China’s smart city market expenditure will reach US$25.9 billion, a year-on-year increase of 12.7%. In the future, smart city solutions will develop in multiple areas.
While the scale of smart city investment continues to expand, my country has successively promoted the development of smart city pilot projects. As of early April 2020, the number of smart city pilot projects announced by the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development has reached 290. If we add up the number of smart city-related pilot projects determined by the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the National Bureau of Surveying, Mapping, and the Development and Reform Commission, the preliminary estimate is that the total number will reach 749 (without excluding overlapping parts).
In December 2019, at the award ceremony of the “IOT Pinnacle Wisdom Ceremony” of the “Tenth China Internet of Things Industry and Smart City Development Annual Conference”, Xianhe’s environmental protection smart environment platform solution won the “2019 China Smart City Excellent Solution Award” “. Xianhe This award-winning project takes the ecological environment grid monitoring system as the core, integrates leading technologies such as the Internet of Things, big data, and smart calibration to build a three-dimensional smart monitoring system, combined with environmental big data for environmental analysis and judgment, to diagnose environmental problems and pollution sources Carry out precise and refined supervision, use scientific and effective governance methods for environmental monitoring, management, governance and assessment, assist the government in formulating management and control plans and decomposing emission reduction targets, and provide an effective starting point for the government to achieve emission reduction standards.
