You meet a genie at innovfest unbound 2017 who provides you with three wishes, but it must be used on smart city projects, what do you choose?

Singapore, and much of Southeast Asia, has made Smart Nation (or smart cities) an important public policy drive. While it is a catch-all phrase that includes everything from infrastructure to finance, it generally refers to the integration of technology into how a city operates.

Today marks Day 1 of innovfest unbound 2017 in Singapore, and the city-state’s Smart Nation initiative is on full display. Smart buses, big data and even the banks are attending the event.

So, we thought, why not ask the audience? If you had three wishes, and could snap your finger to create any Smart City project, what would you choose? Flying cars? Clean water? Better recycling?

Let us know in the discussion below.
