Young software engineers help solve city problems

Around 60 groups of young software engineers and IT students competed recently to produce smartphone applications to benefit Jakartans in terms of education, transportation and health.

Held by Google Indonesia, the Hack for Impact competition encouraged software engineers to create apps to solve three main problems in Jakarta by using data provided by the city administration.

Akbar Juang Saputra, a fourth-year student at the Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB) majoring in informatics technology, said that he and other three ITB students in his group had created an app called “Darurat!” that simplified access to emergency service numbers and center locations.

Making Jakarta A Smart City

Imagine driving in Jakarta without getting trapped in traffic, being able to drift around freely, knowing where to park and hopping on the next train without losing time, energy and patience.

This utopian vision could become a reality as the Jakarta administration moves quickly to build a smart city by 2018, when the city will host the regional sporting event, the Asian Games.

Jakarta, which celebrated its 488th anniversary on June 22, lags behind other big cities in the region in utilizing information and communication technology advancements to address urban challenges.

Mimpi Besar Ridwan Kamil Bikin Bandung Teknopolis di Gedebage

Bandung -Teknopolis, satu kata yang sering disebut-sebut Wali Kota Bandung Ridwan Kamil. Sebetulnya istilah teknopolis merupakan pembaharuan dari rencana pembangunan Kawasan Pertumbuhan Primer di Gedebage yang sempat dicetuskan Wali Kota Bandung Dada Rosada.

Karena berubah nama dan kebijakan, otomatis konsep yang diterapkan juga baru. Pria yang akrab disapa Emil ini mengonsepkan Teknopolis sebagai kota kecil di dalam Kota Bandung yang berbasis Teknologi Informasi (IT).

Smart City Perlu Masyarakat Cerdas

Atribut kota cerdas atau smart city bisa diwujudkan dengan partispasi multistakeholders, masyarakat yang cerdas dengan kesetaraan dan pendidikan yang baik, rencana strategis yang berkesinambungan dan terintegrasi, serta kemitraan.

Konsep smart city didefiniskan lebih dari sekedar menciptakan ruangan hijau yang lebih baik, akses komunikasi yang lebih cepat, dan transportasi yang hemat energi. Namun lebih dari itu, smart city adalah kota yang cerdas secara ekonomi, lingkungan, pemerintahan, pola hidup, cerdas mobilitas kotanya, dan cerdas masyarakatnya.
