As the urban populations increase, we must think more deeply about how to make cities less stressful and more creative for people to live in. Liveability and quality of life are key factors while designing and managing energy, water, pollution, and waste systems which are sustainable for the long term. The rapidly developing digital technologies can help to enable these aims to be achieved. Innovative approaches are proposed with recommendations for achieving these goals cities grow and change, digital technologies will be at the heart of improvement. This paper considers how observed trends will have implications on the digital cities of the future and how digital technologies will empower citizens and enable their cities to become intelligent, liveable, and sustainable.
