Panel: What is the “Killer App” for Smart Cities? (0945-1105)
Smart cities promise to make urban life cleaner, greener, and more efficient. As cities make this transition, what will be the “killer apps” that citizens will want to use, and who will build them? What benefits will emerge as smart cities begin to collaborate and learn from each other? And how can the public and private sector work together to maximize the power of data in all European cities?

Transport can be improved by using the Internet of Things to estimate accurate arrival and journey times, make ticketing easier and more flexible, and better understand what more people need from the service. What have been the greatest data-driven achievements in public transport so far, how have policymakers supported these efforts, and what should come next?
