Quantum Cities™: A data-centric approach to sustainable
cities – Alicia Montoya, Swiss Re


Cities around the world are changing at breakneck speed. Urban development is a huge risk and opportunity as cities struggle to sustainably house, power, feed, and provide services for a rapidly shifting and increasingly digital population. These complex, interconnected risks are accumulating and propagating. We need new data-driven approaches and tools, and machine Intelligence-enhanced solutions, to predict and prevent risks and deliver resilience-as-a-service solutions.

Key Takeaways

  • Urban risks are interconnected
  • Digital technologies present an opportunity to better manage risks and optimise resources in real-time
  • Swiss Re Institute’s Quantum Cities™ uses technology and risk knowledge to solve for complex, entangled urban risks to enable sustainable economies and societies
