Seoul City is expected to transform itself into a smart city with 50,000 IoT sensors operated by 2022. On April 13, Seoul Mayor Won-soon Park announced his plan to invest 1.4 trillion won (≒ 1.2 million USD) by 2022 to create a smart city.
The core of smart city stressed by Mayor Park Won-soon on the same day is big data. The plan was to expand to 'smart administration' that collects urban data with 50,000 IoT sensors and establishes optimal policies for citizens' needs. In particular, the company said it will also establish a 'private, and public big data platform' by 2020 for joint use with private big data companies such as finance, distribution, portals and telecommunications.

In the transportation sector, the company will introduce 'IoT Shared Parking System' that checks whether a car can be parked in real time with IoT technology, including the world's first 5G Converged Self-driving Test Bed, and 'AI Taxi' service that connects drivers an…

[CUBE NEWS] Announcement of Master Plan for the Revitalization of Data and AI Economy by the Ministry of Science and Technology | 과기정통부, 데이터·AI 경제 활성화 마스터플랜 발표

The Ministry of Science, ICT and ICT recently announced its plan to achieve 30 trillion won in the data market and nurture 10 artificial intelligence (AI) unicorns by 2023 at the first Innovation Growth Strategy Conference. In addition, he said he would train 10,000 people in the data and artificial intelligence fields.

In order to promote the convergence of data and AI, we will focus on building infrastructure, improving systems, and creating demand for public sectors for startups and small and medium-sized enterprises. We will strengthen cooperation between large and medium-sized businesses by using data and AI, and develop new products and services using them.
In this announcement, the government presented nine tasks such as activating the data value chain cycle, creating a world-class AI innovation ecosystem and promoting data AI convergence. Specifically, the government plans to build 10 big data platforms and organize and operate a big data network council to build quality data in the public and private sectors.

"The latest master plan by the Ministry of Science and Technology and Information and Communication also includes policies for industrial cooperation and support in AI-related technologies," a Cube Intelligence official said. "By taking advantage of the government's announcement that AI-centered technology can lead the country, we will work harder to develop the technology."
