Kyiv smart city concept!

During the last year a term Smart City (intelligent city) was actualized in Kyiv. It is often used in a very abstract sense, almost as a synonym for the phrase "Comfort town", "European city" or even "good city". We will try to describe this process here!

Smart City technology is integrated into the relevant structures to improve the quality of service, reduce cost and consumption and to improve communication and understanding with residents. 


But the giant projects to create new cities from scratch, often in Asia, such as in Egypt and India are often called as smart city. However, none of them is not yet fully realized, but such investment projects are the result of major international agreements - human civilization trying to solve the problems of mass urbanization, the trend of the last century, by joint efforts and resources. However in this article we will focus on information technology, rather than large-scale and ambitious projects of authoritarian states of Asia.
