The cooperation between Tampere and Japan will start with the application of the indicators developed in cooperation between the Smart City Institute Japan and several research institutes and universities. The model uses both objective and subjective data collected from urban residents to improve well-being and streamline daily life.
Data is an important basis for knowledge management: it allows cities to identify their success points and development needs from the perspective of residents. Thanks to this cooperation, the model will now be applied in Tampere as part of the Data Driven City for Citizens development program. The cooperation was announced at the Smart City World Expo in Barcelona.
– For years, the Japanese have familiarized themselves with the key factors of the Nordic society of well-being and have tried to systematically understand the components of well-being, says Kristian ValkamaDirector, AI Transformation, at Business Tampere.
– We have established a good connection with the city of Tampere, and the companies and universities in Tampere, says Takehiko NagumoExecutive Director General of the Smart Cities Institute of Japan.
– Japan wants to work closely with Europe, especially Finland, on issues related to data and artificial intelligence. Our worlds come together well when it comes to the use of ethical data, and closer cooperation benefits us both, says Teppo Rantanenexecutive director of the city of Tampere.
In Finland, the potential of artificial intelligence has been taken into account within the framework of the national program AuroraAI. The objective of the program is to rationalize the daily and professional life of citizens, to develop more human-centered services through information and technology.
– Well-being indicators and the AuroraAI program complement our cooperation and make it useful for both sides. We will share experiences and results offered by the indicators between countries, which will accelerate our shared learning journey towards improving the well-being of city residents, Nagumo said.
