Organizers said despite efforts to find comprehensive and feasible smart city models, countries around the world have carried out separate solutions focusing on certain fields like transport, energy management and healthcare.

The solution created by the AIC Group received the best evaluation because it can connect central agencies, ministries and cities with grassroots establishments like schools, hospitals and businesses. It combines smart applications based on big data, real-time information, artificial intelligence, and analysis and prediction algorithms to form a system of integrated operations centers at different levels.

At the awards ceremony in London, the UK, on October 1, President of the jury Sarolta Besenyei said the contest attracted more than 300 projects in different fields. The jury was impressed with the AIC’s project since it suggested not only concept and model but also solutions to build smart nations.

Chairwoman and General Director of the AIC Group Nguyen Thi Thanh Nhan said over the last two years, the firm has introduced smart city and smart nation solutions to many localities, ministries and sectors of Vietnam and received positive feedback. She said the smart nation model of AIC can be carried out successfully soon.

Eduard Dumitrascu, President of the World’s Smart Cities Organisation, expressed his belief that AIC will soon make its smart nation ideas into a reality.
