Today, the UK Embassy — with British Council & IABA — carried out a thematic discussion on Smart Cities Beyond ICT-Based Cities, in Panghegar Hotel, Bandung. I happened to be in Bandung after the IEEE Lecture at Telkom University, so I attended this event. The speakers were Prof Suhono (ICT), Prof Haryo (Planology), & Ms Heni (City Management), with Ms Mira as the moderator.
Before leaving, we have small informal chats about the progress of some Smart City initiatives in Indonesia.
