Smart City Index 2023

Background & Aim

  • The ISUI Smart City Index is jointly developed by The International Society for Urban Informatics (ISUI) and Otto Poon Charitable Foundation Smart Cities Research Institute (SCRI) of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU).
  • Echoing the new trend in smart-city development, we aim to develop a universally applicable, objective, comprehensive, and human-centric Smart City Index fully based on publicly available datasets.
  • We hope this index will help cities review their development status and explore ways to become smarter cities for everyone.


Features of this index

  • Universality: balanced consideration in stages of development and cultures of the cities.
  • Objectiveness and repeatability: fully based on publicly available data.
  • Human-centric: concentrated on the impact and changes that smart cities bring to the lives of citizens.
  • Comprehensiveness: covering six wheels of smart cities.
