I am a bit late to this. The city was announced in October last year. Prince Mohammed Bin Salman (or MBS, as he is popularly known) is behind the initiative and it is headed by Klaus Kleinfeld, former Siemens CEO. The $500 billion city will have its own government and will be 100% powered by renewable energy. Robots are expected to perform a majority of manual tasks within the city and sensors will be embedded into the city's fabric, allowing for better management of services (and better monitoring of citizens by government agencies!).
