Staying on the Smart Side. Measuring the Smart Communities

  1. 1. SIS Scientific Meeting 2014 Cagliari Jun 11,13 Staying On The Smart Side. Measuring The Smart Communities Mariagrazia Dotoli, Vincenzo Patruno, Luigi Ranieri, Aldo Scarnera
  2. 2. A Smart City enable us to monitor, understand, analyze, and plan the city improving efficiency, reducing costs, generate savings, improving equity and quality of life for its citizens
  3. 3. City Indicators Decision support tool for policy makers (to define city policies) Better communicate city performance to city users (citizens, visitors) and potential investors
  4. 4. Measuring the smartness of a city is a complex issue. There does not exist a set of indicators for measuring the performance of a city that is valid in each context and for each purpose
  5. 5. A harmonized approach is preferable and encouraged so that an effective comparison is allowed on a national or international basis today no universal rule exists in the choice of an appropriate set of indicators, neither a methodological taxonomy and classification has occurred so far but
  6. 6. Es: Green spaces per person (m²)

  10. 10. The idea is to propose a novel conceptual framework for smart city indicators classification, which puts both the human perspective and the technological content at the heart of the classification and selection process
  11. 11. Objective refers to indicators which look at the city physical infrastructure (e.g. public transport network capillarity), urban assets (e.g. green space share) and conditions of the general context (e.g. air quality).
  12. 12. includes indicators which tend to measure the citizens satisfaction and well-being. The subjective indicators represent a useful addition and complement to the objective ones. (Es: satisfaction with quality of schools, satisfaction with transparency of bureaucracy. ) Subjective
  13. 13. The importance of the subjective indicators is to allow to achieve a more complete and articulated vision of the measured system than by the single use of objective indicators
  14. 14.
  15. 15. Cinema attendance per inhabitant; Museums visits per inhabitant; Theatre attendance per inhabitant. Smart Living: Satisfaction with quality of health system; Satisfaction with personal housing situation; Satisfaction with access to educational system; Satisfaction with quality of educational system.
  16. 16. The framework is being tested as a tool for developing indicators to monitor the smart city initiatives in the municipality of Bari (Italy).

  18. 18. 1. traditional tools: indicators are computed by analysis and manipulation of the observed variables and data in a traditional repository; 2. innovative tools based on data sensing and mining of physical infrastructure: indicators computation is based on the collection and analytics of machine-sensed data (e.g. smart grid energy consumption through power meter); 3. innovative tools based on data sensing and mining of social infrastructure: indicators are computed collecting the digital footprints and applying to them complex analytics as knowledge discovery and data mining (e.g., service satisfaction level deduced from social networks).
