Standards cooperation is key to making AI and smart cities a reality


Every year, a dozen organizations come together to focus on global standards collaboration in the area of information and communication technology.

This year's meeting, GSC-22, was held in Montreux, Switzerland, and among a broad range of topics, expert speakers brought special focus to discussions on the potential of AI (artificial intelligence) and smart sustainable cities.

Hosted by a different member each year, the meeting of the Global Standards Collaboration, GSC-22, was jointly organized by ISO and the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission). The two-day event attracted participants from around the world, with notable representation from those countries where information communication technology (ICT) is set to play an increasingly strong role in the economy.
