In recent years, we have observed an acceleration in the development of new technologies, mainly linked to the growth of the population, particularly in urban areas, which has led to a significant acceleration relating to reversals in research and innovation. What gave birth to a new concept is the smart city. This concept appeared at the crossroads of two strong tendencies, the exponential urbanization of humanity and the digital revolution, information and communications technologies are equipping cities with the objective of providing tools to help decision thus improve urban functioning.
Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things have introduced themselves today as must-have technologies in almost every sector. Ranging from agriculture to industry, and healthcare, the scope of applications of AI and IoT is as wide as the horizon.

As these countries were more affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, both healthcare-wise and economy-wise, the need to adopt new solutions to sustainable development challenges has become more crucial than ever.
