Post Event Report: Panel Discussion about the Future of Smart Community

From June 18 to 20 in Tokyo, JSCA and NEDO hosted the Japan Smart Community Summit 2014, in which GSGF and ISGAN members gathered for a panel discussion about the future of smart community. Dr. Hiroshi Kuniyoshi, JSCA and NEDO, moderated this session and helped share their opinions with more than 300 people. They enthusiastically discussed collaboration, competition, policies, regulation, cybersecurity etc. in the field of smart community.
