A city that knows your every move: Saudi Arabia's new smart city might be a glimpse of the future

Expected to be completed by 2030, The Line will be fitted with every high-tech element of a science-fiction movie, from air taxis to humanoid concierges.

No cars, but AI-enabled micro-mobility services; no streets or congestion, but an urban environment in which 95% of nature will be protected. All of which will be powered through the 100% renewable Neom grid.

Data protection is one key area where residents are likely to want some clearly defined policies. In the case of The Line, for example, Mattern points to retail workers or taxi drivers, or temporary visitors coming for a short amount of time. "What type of data-sharing agreement will they have?" she asks. The exact details of how to opt-in or opt-out of data sharing and for how long, she argues, are tricky and long-winded, and likely to require thorough debate and discussion.
