Seoul will be launching the “Smart Seoul Gallery” through which visitors can experience innovative smart city services and technologies that are changing citizens’ lives. The gallery will open in March 2020 in Seoul Citizens’ Hall, located on B1 of the new building of Seoul City Hall.
The fancy lights and videos delivered through the LED wall that will be installed on the outer wall of the gallery will represent a dynamic smart city in which data are generated and collected from the sensors throughout the city and connected through the public Wi-Fi.
Visitors can also experience the Digital Citizen’s Mayor Office that grafts the ICT onto administrative information on the city of Seoul, including information related to transportation, emergencies, and prices. In other parts of the gallery, visitors can have VR and AR experiences and offer their own suggestions for solving urban problems by connecting to Democracy Seoul, the city’s online platform, using the displayed smart devices.
By establishing the Smart Seoul Gallery, the city of Seoul will enable regular citizens to have an idea of such smart city services that are altering their lives, ranging across various fields like transportation, safety, environment, welfare, and more.
Specifically, the gallery will become a must-visit course for officials from overseas cities. Such officials are visiting Seoul in greater numbers to make reference to Seoul’s smart city services.
The gallery will also be a platform for the domestic and international promotion of the capabilities of the city of Seoul and participating companies in terms of creating smart city policies, being the springboard for the companies to enter overseas markets and solidifying the status of Seoul as a smart city.
The concept of the Smart City Gallery is “Seoul, Changing Citizens’ Lives with Data.” The exhibition space will be divided into five themes, including ① the generation and collection of data, ② the decision-making based on data, ③ the cases of using data, ④ the participation of citizens, and ⑤ the promotion of companies.
