With each passing year, the world is becoming more and more advanced thanks to the development of technology. Every year we hear somebody making a new breakthrough in the field of science and that is allowing us to develop newer ways to communicate, produce, and evolve. It is not a surprise that one of the deciding factors to determine if a country is developed or developing is the advancement of their technology and their implications in the cities. With all that in mind, here is a list of top 5 of the most technologically advanced cities in the world.
5. New York City
Most people would link New York City with the amazing lifestyle, bankings, and Broadway. However, one of the city’s gem is the Silicon Valley which is like the ultimate hub of technology. This particular place sees an annual investment of $7.3 billion in technology. In fact, the city is undergoing a huge fiber optic telecommunications upgrade throughout the city which would push NYC to the top of the list of advanced cities in the world.
4. Hong Kong
If there was a city which was considered as the financial hub of Asia then it is Hong Kong. This city is one of the most technologically advanced cities in Asia and happens to have the fastest internet connection in the world. The government regularly funds innovation with $1.8 billion have been spent on science and technology R$D since 2011. Even the schools themselves are using technology and some of them have a fingerprint scanner to allow students in and out of the building.
While the rest of the European cities have been in some sort of slump since 2008, Sweden and its city of Stockholm have been increasing their development by leaps and bounds. It is considered as the fastest growing technology startup hub of Europe. A stable economy, a well-skilled workforce has earned Stockholm to gain 15% of the technology investment of the entire continent. It also happens to be the home of some of the most recognized tech superstars such as Niklas Zennström of Skype, Martin Lorentzon of Spotify, and Daniel Ek of µTorrent.
The city of London takes a firm spot at the highest priority on our rundown of the most innovatively propelled urban areas on the planet, however, it imparts the primary spot title to Seoul. While Seoul has better broadband quality, the English capital wins out with regards to interactive media plan and mechanical preparation. In yet another reference to the Valley, London has Silicon Roundabout: the third-biggest tech startup zone on the planet. The range has pulled on the planet’s biggest tech organizations, a hefty portion of whom have made advancement center points and research labs in the Central/East London bunch.
It is no surprise that Seoul tops our list of the most technologically advanced cities of the world. The capital of South Korea, Seoul produces 21% of the country’s GDP while using just 1% of the land. It is also home to tech giants such as LG and Samsung. The city is planning to give out second-hand smart devices to all lower income families so that they can access the World Wide Web and stay connected. There are high lamp posts which give our broadcast audio as a well as wireless internet connections.
