The Smart Enough City - Webinar
The Smart Enough City: Putting Technology in Its Place to Reclaim Our Urban Future with Ben Green
Smart cities, where technology is used to solve every problem, are hailed as futuristic urban utopias. We are promised that apps, algorithms, and artificial intelligence will relieve congestion, restore democracy, prevent crime, and improve public services. Hear warnings against seeing the city through the lens of technology; taking an exclusively technical view of urban life will lead to cities that appear smart but under the surface are rife with injustice and inequality.
