“Cities are the most successful and complex of human inventions. They’ve lifted billions out of extreme poverty and are now the central mechanism of generating GDP. I wrote this book, not as an academic exercise in theory, but as the world’s first comprehensive how-to guide. Everyone who reads it will be empowered to make their cities better for everyone.” said Dr. Reichental.
Dr Reichental will talk about the evolution of the book, why smart cities are important and what we can do to be part of them. Smart Cities of the future are expected to change how we live and provide a promise of a high quality of life, better healthcare, education and job outlook.
Futurist Ian Khan said “Today in the era of COVID-19, we have recognized the need for a better infrastructure and lifestyle that helps us prevent disease and promises economic and social stability. Smart Cities may be of a huge significance to this”. The Ian Khan Show hosts leaders, experts and visionaries who have ideas to change the world through their exemplary work. Previous guests have included Dr. Shafi Ahmed (the worlds most watched surgeon and virtual reality surgery pioneer), Naveen Jain (Founder of Viome & oon Express), Daniel Stanton (Mr. Supply Chain) and other visionary leaders.
