Public Services and Cybersecurity

Digital technology enables governments to better engage with citizens through more responsive service design. Protecting critical infrastructure, cloud services, data privacy, and maintaining cybersecurity are key for the implementation of smart cities.

Sports

Athletes are enhancing their performance through equipment and connected health devices, and in-stadium entertainment is being transformed by Internet of Things, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality.

Artificial Intelligence has enabled digital diagnosis and the delivery of virtual healthcare, while the Internet of Things is improving the wellbeing and experience of patients under care.

Transportation

Technology can enable more efficient transportation systems that can improve mobility, save time for citizens, maximise government resources and facilitate the transition to a low carbon economy. Low carbon and autonomous vehicles, intelligent transport systems, sustainable mobility and traffic management are driving the future of transportation.
