Smart cities are becoming a key carrier of digital transformation, and AI technology will provide a strong impetus in the process of high-quality urban development. Industry experts say that the construction of smart city needs an agile "urban operating system" that can deeply integrate data, technology and business; "urban operating system" is an important way for local governments to implement the digital China strategy and promote the digital development in various fields.
The digital transformation of cities is accelerating
Building a digital China is an important engine to promote Chinese path to modernization. At the "2023 High Quality Development Seminar on Urban Digital Transformation" held in Shanghai recently, Zhang Xueying, a member of the Standing Committee and Deputy Director of the National Information Center Party Committee, stated that accelerating urban digital transformation, driving overall changes in production, lifestyle, and governance methods, further promoting urban-rural integration and coordinated development, enhancing people's satisfaction and sense of gain, is a response to the current and future trend The inevitable choice to seize opportunities.
Zhang Xueying believes that, to promote the urban digital transformation, first, to strengthen the top design of urban digital transformation; second, to increase the service supply of urban digital transformation, strengthen the construction of common platforms such as "urban operating system"; third, to cultivate the good ecology of urban digital transformation, innovate the operation mode of urban digital transformation, and encourage enterprises to participate in the process of urban digital transformation.
At present, China's digital economy has entered a stage of vigorous development. Under the background of seizing the development opportunities of digital economy and promoting the development of digital economy industry, a large number of enterprises use new technologies, new products and new solutions to contribute to the development of digital economy and urban digitalization, covering transportation, environmental protection, education, energy, medical care, resources, public security and other fields.
Wang Xiwen, director of the Institute of Intelligent Manufacturing and Industry 4.0 of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, said that the concept of smart city is constantly changing, from simple wireless networking and Internet of everything, to intelligent infrastructure, intelligent industrial chain, intelligent manufacturing, intelligent finance and so on. Informatization and intelligence have become a new trend of development in China's social governance, improvement of people's livelihood, and ecological and environmental governance. It can be said that the construction of smart city is an important carrier to promote the development of digital economy.
The "Urban operating system" has become an important starting point
To promote the urban digital transformation and build a smart city, the "urban operating system" is an indispensable and important "digital base" and "central system". "Urban operating system" is a self-developed urban agent engine that can realize the integration of "digital base + application scenario". With the help of "urban operating system", the city can perceive and realize the collaborative management of the physical world and the digital world; the second is to make the city think and promote the interaction and integration of the physical world and the digital world; the city is wise, and deduce the physical world and the digital world.
According to the Research Report on the Urban Operating System in the Era of Artificial Intelligence 2.0 released by the Smart City Development Research Center, the "urban operating system" is a "connector" and a digital enabling ecosystem. "Urban operating system" is accelerating the shift from conceptual design to implementation. From the perspective of supply, some smart city manufacturers have explored and developed platforms and solutions related to the "urban operating system", and continue to iterate and upgrade. From the perspective of demand, the "urban operating system" has become a common platform and an important starting point for various localities to accelerate the digital transformation.
Ma Chaojiang, Director of the Information Development Policy Department of the Ministry of Information Technology and Industrial Development of the National Information Center and Deputy Director of the Smart City Development Research Center, stated that the core capabilities of "urban operating systems" lie in the formation, integration, and output of smart capabilities. In the future, the "urban operating system" needs to focus on improving three major systems: firstly, the technical system should continuously achieve innovative breakthroughs in the fields of artificial intelligence, blockchain, standard specifications, urban governance, data governance, and other technologies; The second is to create a product and service system, continuously enrich the services around the "urban operating system", and make it more in line with practical needs; The third is to form an ecosystem and build an open and win-win model.
Industry insiders said that urban digitization is not only the physical centralization and interconnection of multi-department systems in the past, but also the data-driven system reconstruction in the urban integration mode. In the future, the key work of urban digital transformation is to build an "urban operating system". Through the construction of "urban operating system", the data will be stronger and stronger in the future, the application will be lighter and lighter, and even customers can quickly build the scene by themselves.
Better enable the development of smart cities
In recent years, many cities have put forward the planning goals in different fields, such as government digital transformation and industrial digital transformation. Industry experts pointed out that smart cities are entering a new stage of deepening, practical and long-term development, and the "urban operating system" will promote the construction of a universal and convenient digital society.
Shanghai putuo district emergency management bureau deputy director Yin Keqiang said, now urban management need further analysis of the results of data mining, to get the key points of urban operation management and hidden problems, thus more accurately put the limited resources into the field of urgent need, let the city run more smoothly.
Geng Dehong, deputy director of the Institute of Urban Governance at Peking University, believes that digitalization is the trend of urban development in the future, and now the construction of digital cities is mainly about how to better play the role of data, a new factor of production. The "urban operating system" based on AI model designs the city as a whole rather than based on some scattered and fragmented problems as before. This kind of solution design based on key new technologies is becoming a development trend.
For how to better enable the construction of smart city, analysts believe that first, there should be a new product design concept, through the business, application, data and technology; second, the formation of a new integrated development, operation, operation and maintenance mode; third, the construction of urban service ecosystem, digital system on demand, real-time interconnection, highly intelligent and credible; fourth, the construction of data center series products and data innovation application, fully support the value realization driven by new data elements.
It actively participates in the construction of smart city. Under the smart city solution, it has seven business divisions, namely: Smart Medical Business Division, Intelligent Transportation Business Division, Network Security Business Division, Smart Building Business Division, Smart Campus Business Division, Smart Garden Business Division and Smart Pension Business Division. Subsidiaries: Jiangsu Zhongke Intelligent System Co., LTD., Zhejiang HuaWanun Information Technology Co., LTD., Shenzhen Weida Medical System Engineering Co., LTD., Xi'an Xulong Electronic Technology Co., LTD., Shanghai Qingtian Electronics Technology Co., LTD., are among them.
The company strives to provide solutions for the construction of digital city in medical care, transportation, network security, construction, education, garden, pension and fire protection and other aspects, and helps to help create a more intelligent and convenient city life.
