Main trends of the World Government Summit

On February 10-12, the World Government Summit is held in Dubai, the UAE, where SkyWay string transport was presented with the support of the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA). The event brought together an impressive number of influential guests including former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurria, IMF Director Christine Lagarde, Director-General of the International Labor Organization Guy Ryder, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan and even actor Harrison Ford and rapper Will.i.am. In total — more than 4,000 influential people from around the world.

Technologies in all their embodiments — from the components of a "smart city" to the impact of artificial intelligence on the status of women in society — became a general subject of discussion during the summit.

Smart cities

The direction of the development in the UAE in the coming years was announced by the Crown Prince of Dubai Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, who chose an impressive and technologically advanced format for his speech: the speech was made by his hologram. In his speech, the Crown Prince spoke about the importance of developing information technologies for the formation of future cities. He noted that in the future, every resident of the city will generate and consume energy from renewable sources such as solar panels.

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed stressed that in the coming years Dubai plans to automate the transport sector. The city administration intends to reduce traffic by 40% and ensure that 80% of the population would be able to get home from work in less than 20 minutes.
