From Bots to Digital IDs, Cities Put Tech to Work for Everyday Interactions

Updated: Mar 28, 2019

Hello there,

Welcome to my first edition of :trending. After starting Stralto just over a year ago, I've been sharing articles around the office, from tech trends and smart city innovations to robots taking over the planet, and thought you might want to join the party. So, a couple times a month, I'll be sharing a round up of some of my favorites with a few insights from me, and an update here and there on what we're up to over at Stralto. Enjoy!

Bots aren't all that bad.

These days, there are a lot of mixed feelings about bots out in the universe. Mainly considered more of a nuisance vs. a helpful service. With the majority of the civilized population, especially in areas with slow or no internet, relying on mobile text messaging for their everyday needs and interactions; bots can also play a significant role in how cities interact with their citizens. It's great to see bots used for the greater good. It's a service we started integrating into our solutions to enhance further the interactions citizens can have with their governments.

Going digital

Just think about all the paper forms we still have to fill out and the wallet filled with IDs & credit cards we carry with us and are always afraid of losing.
