AREA CONCEPT

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government hopes to transform the city into one that uses cutting-edge technologies to offer cross-sector services, with the goal of achieving "Smart Tokyo," which will leverage the power of digital technology to bring out the potential of the city.
In order to move forward with this initiative, three projects have been chosen to construct models for the development of services in a number of sectors, using AI and real-time data that is closely linked to communities in areas of Tokyo where data and advanced technologies are concentrated, and studies for the creation of social implementation models are in progress.
