The Smart City Challenges: digitalization (Italian)
The idea of smart city involves technological development through the massive analysis and use of data. In this context, PAs have to fill a crucial role to support the digital transition. The panel aims to analyze the process of realization of the digital growth objectives and how modernization of PAs becomes a priority for the revitalization of the country system, developing a program that includes every technological enabler necessary to offer secure and fully accessible services: infrastructure, interoperability, platforms, cybersecurity, urban and land management. The panel will address these issues, considering the challenges posed by the digitalization of PAs on the participation of the private sector, the role of data and privacy and the protection of fundamental rights. The progressive technicalisation of PAs can make their decisions opaque. This may require new or revised approaches to enable adequate judicial review of decisions made with the support of ICT and AI.
