2030. Two thirds of the planet population live in big cities where sensors control street lighting and safety in residential districts, transport is charged with drones in motion, and a human being on the way to work in a driverless car gets a doctor’s consultation while looking through a message warning that the turbine cooling system at the plant he is in charge of will soon go out of order. The automatic data exchange and the development of new algorithms for their analysis, communication among people and things, autonomous intellectual management systems and industrial interaction schemes are key processes supporting the new digital infrastructure. What information networks and cybersecurity level will be required to manage such a system? How will the business model of energy companies change? Will the B2C insurance system disappear? What policy should governments pursue to regulate and maintain the smart infrastructure? What should instruments of financing such infrastructure be like? What new businesses will appear in the new landscape?
