Technology and Society in Smart City

  1. 1. What is Smart City ? “The use of Smart Computing technologies to make the critical infrastructure components and services of a city––which include city administration, education, healthcare, public safety, real estate, transportation, and utilities––more intelligent, interconnected, and efficient” A city can be defined as ‘smart’ when investments in human and social capital and traditional (transport) and modern (ICT) communication infrastructure fuel sustainable economic development and a high quality of life, with a wise management of natural resources, through participatory action and engagement. (Caragliu et al. 2009) The most effective definition of a smart city is a community that is efficient, livable, and sustainable— and these three elements go hand-in-hand. A city “connecting the physical infrastructure, the IT infrastructure, the social infrastructure, and the business infrastructure to leverage the collective intelligence of the city” A Smart City is one that is able to link physical capital with social one, and to develop better services and infrastructures. It is able to bring together technology, information, and political vision, into a coherent Programme of urban and service improvements. Forrester, Smart City is the combined use of software systems, server infrastructure, network infrastructure, and client devices to better connect seven critical city infrastructure components and services: city administration, education, healthcare, public safety, real estate, transportation, and utilities (Smart City, 2012). A city well performing in a forward-looking way in economy, people, governance, mobility, environment, and living, built on the smart combination of endowments and activities of self-decisive, independent and aware citizens. IBM’s Smart Cities digitize and connect infrastructures (IOT) to infuse them with new intelligence (IBM, 2012).
  2. 2. Why Do We Need a Smart City ? population growth There will be more than 9 billion humans in the world in 2050, and about 70 percent of them will live in urban areas The challenges of climate change There will be an urgent need for smarter, more sustainable cities to make life bearable for so many people New Technologies
