Sobolt Aims for Smart Cities with Horizon 2020!

On Monday, Sobolt goes to Norway to meet with potential Horizon 2020 project partners. The mission? To develop a strong proposal that will move us forward in the Horizon 2020 process. The project falls under the Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials call and focuses specifically on “visionary and integrated solutions to improve well-being and health in cities.”

 

 

Oslo is the ideal place to start the project conversation about ‘healthy cities.' It is the “European Green Capital” of 2019, with urban planners, politicians and businesses working hard to reduce the city’s carbon footprint and ensure a sustainable future for everyone. Initiatives like car-free urban living, green entrepreneurship and sustainable city planning have gained traction in Oslo over recent years. Sobolt will be part of their sustainability mission and gain inspiration from our Norwegian counterparts.

 

The keyword here is equality: equal access to green spaces, transportation and amenities while ensuring that one group is not more exposed to factors like pollutants, excess heat or severe weather than another. All of this, believe it or not, can be done using data integration and machine learning. Sobolt’s unique algorithms and AI capabilities can help developers see the most effective places for smart solutions by overlaying remote imaging with factors such as temperature, population density and age distribution. As a result, planners and builders can use effectively design and implement inclusive and innovative urban spaces. So, “ha det” Rotterdam and “hallo” Oslo!
