The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) has joined the race of development and made major advancements in its digital economy. NEOM smart city is one of them, the project of Saudi Arabia which will be deploying evolving technologies like Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things (IoT) for solving routine issues. Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince and chairman of the NEOM company board of directors, has announced plans to build a 100-mile long linear city, built around nature. This project will bring a revolution in urban living by incorporating smart technologies.

Neom is a planned $500 billion cross border city, in the province of Tabuk, situated in the northwest of Saudi Arabia. The smart city is a concept, where Information and communication technologies (ICT) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are incorporated for the development of an urban city, to provide ease in daily life problems. This concept has been initiated, to manage resources and assets efficiently, by properly using the information. The information is collected from users and their devices, which is later cleaned and processed for providing users services like managing transportation, power plants, water supply systems waste disposal, etc.

How IT is going to transform NEOM city?

NEOM will be using Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), Block-chain, Big Data, Robotics, Machine Learning, 5G across the city to expand the quality of life and lessen its costs. The technology would be used for providing services like smart management, lifestyle, mobility, housing, as well as a smart economy so that upcoming social, environmental, and economic challenges can be faced efficiently using technological innovation.

NEOM is considered to be 100% ecological, where there will be no cars & zero carbon emission. The services can be acquired within five minutes of access. All this will be achieved by utilizing a large number of human and non-human resources, mobilizing a high level of intellectual assets, and implementing none other than blockchain technology.

To implement the advanced technologies, the city will be divided into three layers. The first layer would consist of 80,000 citizens, all necessities provided, at the doorstep. The second layer would put together the concealed infrastructure, comprising schools, medical and sports complexes. The last layer would be providing fast transport services, to reach the other end of NEOM within 20 minutes. The city will use its own operating system, named NEOS that will operate on data collected over different resources. The buildings and infrastructure will function by using installed IoT devices at everyone’s residence. Artificial intelligence and data mining will be used to manage equipment to alarm the users in case of any failure. A prescheduled transport system will be implemented to drop users anywhere based on their information provided, predicting their next move, by using the best of Artificial intelligence.
