What are the most significant trends we are seeing as city administrations prepare for the fourth industrial revolution and what can we expect in the coming years? Is all the technology innovation we see in consumer markets really necessary for all cities around the world, or maybe just some? What are the most innovative business models and technologies that have had a transformative effect on global cities? What are the key traits of a city that is open to innovation?

In this week's episode of "A Glimpse into the Future," we talk to Abha Joshi-Ghani, Senior Advisor on Infrastructure, Public-Private Partnerships and Guarantees at The World Bank and Carlo Ratti, Director of the SENSEable City Laboratory at MIT. Abha and Carlo are also the co-chairs of the World Economic Forum Council on Cities and Urbanization.
