Smarticipate is a research project revolved around the development of the smarticipate platform, a web-connected solution that allows citizens to interact in a new way with their local government. Based upon the idea that smartphones and web applications are widely used in our daily life, this project aims at opening up the process of creating new applications. So, this guide is a step-by-step manual explaining how the smarticipate platform can support the creation of new apps aiming to make cities more liveable, greener and smarter.
This book, written by Paul Chatterson, seeks to explore the power of rapidly emerging constellations of connected experiments that can harness the creative power of the many and have the potential to radically unlock the latent potential of cities. It foregrounds that one of the central problems is the way that we approach the very idea of sustainability and questions the dominant urban project of the human species, which he defines as Capitalocene.
As we enter 2019, Smart Cities Dive presents a list of trends that are expected to influence and shape the future of smart cities in 2019. From new mobility services to advanced payment options and the evolution towards 5G technologies, this year is expected to significantly transform cities.
This report presents a European view of Artificial Intelligence (AI) based on independent research and analysis by the European Commission Joint Research Centre to inform the debate at the European level. Shedding light on the opportunities as well as challenges emerging from the recent developments in AI, this report attempts to outline the way towards building a human-centred, diverse, and socially driven AI.
Written by AbdouMaliq Simone and Edgar Pieterse, this book attempts to address the relationship between urban theory and practice in Asia and Africa. It is argued that we need to look at the neighborhood or district level to get the essence of urban lives. This book reads like a collection of authors’ thoughts on urban change over the past several decades. It reflects their concern for social justice in African and Asian cities, which is ever challenged by the commodification and technologization of urban spaces.
This paper reviews the literature about the Smart City paradigm in terms of culture, metabolism and governance and proposes a theoretical framework around it. This framework adopts a citizen-centered and outcome-oriented approach rather than a technology-based, corporate-driven solution. This approach applies smart infrastructure to each of the three fundamental values of a city in order to show how smart culture, smart metabolism, and smart governance can be created.
