Mayor Oh attended the second seminar of the U-Seoul Forum on July 13. In the wake of recent sexual assaults against minors, this seminar was held to find ways to protect the socially vulnerable using ubiquitous technologies. Experts from industries, universities, research institutes and public organizations gathered at the seminar.
The U-Seoul Forum is a university-industry-institute-government cooperation network established in 2008 to blueprint how to actualize a ubiquitous city. As of July 9, 794 members have been actively exchanging information and discussing policy development.
At the venue of the seminar, the safety service experience showroom was installed as well. Mayor Oh visited the exhibition hall, and experienced the state-of-the-art security system and the U-Seoul safety zone service, which has been set up to protect children and seniors.
Mayor Oh said that he will endeavor to make Seoul safer for every citizen by offering various U-City Services.
