Smart Cities, Smart Citizens and the case for the CitySDK

2,503 views

Published on

Presentation at Information Access in Smart Cities workshop in Amsterdam, 13/04/2014 - on how smart citizens should be the focus in smart cities, and what CitySDK does to make it possible. The presentation starts with some design rules for smarter cities, then introduces Waag Society, and quickly moves on to the Amsterdam Case for Open Data. Then the shortcomings of this approach are described, after which it introduces the City Service Development Kit - a set of bottom up, harmonized API's for software development that scales across cities and countries. Some examples are presented, and it gets back to the central thesis: design smart cities with the people, not for or against them.

  • dit is de stad met onze school
  • we weten van alles over de stad en objecten in de stad, maar het is lastig om alleen voor de school in de data de informatie te vinden
  • het zou mooi zijn als er koppelingen zijn tussen datasets, dan kun je makkelijk terugvinden dat datasets beide informatie hebben over de school (of ander object)
  • gekoppelde data bij school maar ook over ov halte en park in de buurt

    1. 1. Smart Cities, Smart Citizens and the case for CitySDK. Frank Kresin Research Director @kresin / frank@waag.org
    2. 2. Design Rules for Smarter Cities • Your citizens know more than you. • Prototype early and fast, engage the stakeholders, iterate quickly and be prepared to start all over. • Embrace self-organisation and civic initiative, but help to make the results sustainable and scalable. • Know what you are talking about in the face of technology. Never rely on consultants that will sell you more consultancy, not solutions. • Have binding decisions made at the lowest level possible and actively preach self-governance. • Favour loosely coupled, smaller systems over monoliths and mastodons, and use peer-defined standards to glue together the parts. Small systems tend to fail sometimes; large systems fail for sure. • To raise and deserve trust, build systems based on data reciprocity and transparency. • Reuse existing parts and design your additions for reuse, adding to the public domain and thereby strengthening its capacity to act and learn. http://waag.org/nl/blog/design-rules-smarter-cities

    12. 12. City SDK 26 Open, interoperable service interfaces. Processes, guidelines and usability standards. Sharing, re-using and transferring city solutions across cities. Not inventing from the scratch, but mapping, using & developing global best practices

    14. 14. Problem: Lack of Interoperability Formats and APIs vary between cities •‘Open’ interfaces to existing systems are not uniform even within cities •Documentation is lacking as well Scaling an app from one city to another =
