Dr Martin Serrano of the Insight Centre for Data Analytics at NUI Galway researches these technologies. He says that one smart city can be very different from another. “Smart cities are different depending on the city’s needs,” he says.

“Galway has priorities in tourism and transport, whereas Cork needs solutions in flood prevention and health. Smart technologies are all about improving quality of life for citizens, but that means different things in different places.”

Ireland lags behind when it comes to implementing smart technologies, but Serrano believes we are flexible enough to leapfrog ahead.
