Standards cooperation is key to making AI and smart cities a reality

Every year, a dozen organizations come together to focus on global standards collaboration in the area of information and communication technology. This year’s meeting, GSC-22, was held in Montreux, Switzerland, and among a broad range of topics, expert speakers brought special focus to discussions on the potential of AI (artificial intelligence) and smart sustainable cities.

Hosted by a different member each year, the meeting of the Global Standards Collaboration, GSC-22, was jointly organized by ISO and the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission). The two-day event attracted participants from around the world, with notable representation from those countries where information communication technology (ICT) is set to play an increasingly strong role in the economy.

Standardization is essential to artificial intelligence – its future and its wide adoption across the world

The first day was dedicated to innovative presentations and lively panel discussions on the theme of smart sustainable cities. GSC members shared their views on standards relevant to cities that face substantial challenges in choosing suitable standards for their requirements.

Recognizing the fast pace of technological evolution combined with rapidly growing populations, members encouraged continued discussion, particularly on the development of guidelines and standards to enable seamless data exchange and interoperability.
