Smart Cities vs. Smart Citizens | Frank Kresin, Waag Society

Smart Cities vs. Smart Citizens | Frank Kresin, Waag Society | AmsterdamSmartCity | Scoop.it

Smart Cities vs. Smart Citizens - musings on the Smart City World Expo Congress, by Frank Kresin.

 

While big businesses - IBM, CISCO, Siemens and their likes - aggressively push a top down, plan-and-control driven vision of the Smart City, many city dwellers seem to think differently. Visionaries like Anthony Townsend and Dan Hill point to a more human approach to improving the cities living conditions, that resembles the views put forward by a host of authors in a recent publication on Smart Citizens. Waag Society, of course, has passionately embraced the latter since its inception almost 20 years ago.

 

The Smart City Expo World Congress however, an annual gathering in Barcelona sponsored by the companies that want to sell their technologies, is still mainly dominated by the control-room vision. Mayors and consultants of cities like Rio, Mexico, Singapore and Hong Kong gathered and testified of the great advances the technology will bring. Most of them, unfortunately, hardly understand that the expensive systems that are pushed on them will lock their information in silos that will hinder innovations in the long run. Fortunately there are some good examples too. I was particularly impressed by the presentation by the CIO of Chicago. The city has adopted a rigorous and successful open data strategy and nurtures the creativity and entrepreneurship from the bottom up. ...

Privacy and Big Data in Smart Cities | Dylan Tarin

Privacy and Big Data in Smart Cities | Dylan Tarin | AmsterdamSmartCity | Scoop.it

There are currently many questions that we find surrounding the future of privacy in Smart Cities. Analysing the current legislation on Personal Data Protection, including the latest European reform bill, which will harmonise legislation on the subject, and comparing it to the innovative applications and systems that provide for effective Smart City development and consist mainly of collecting vast amounts of data via devices and wireless sensors for later analysis and application service management, will confirm that we are, again, facing a bleak scenario. A Regulation which, due to its preventative approach, creates sufficient legal uncertainty to discourage investment in projects that would improve city life. Instead, we see experimental “demos” that will only be implemented within the confines of universities. ...

Physicians expand reach of care with mobile robots

Physicians expand reach of care with mobile robots | AmsterdamSmartCity | Scoop.it

Remote presence robots are allowing physicians to "beam" themselves into hospitals to diagnose patients and offer medical advice during emergencies.

A growing number of hospitals are using telepresence robots to expand access to medical specialists, especially in rural areas where there's a shortage of doctors.

These mobile video-conferencing machines move on wheels and typically stand about 5 feet, with a large screen that projects a doctor's face. They feature cameras, microphones and speakers that allow physicians and patients to see and talk to each other.

Dignity Health, which runs Arizona, California and Nevada hospitals, began using the telemedicine machines five years ago to diagnose patients suspected of suffering strokes — when every minute is crucial to prevent serious brain damage.

The San Francisco-based health care provider now uses the telemedicine robots in emergency rooms and intensive-care units at about 20 California hospitals, giving them access to specialists in areas such as neurology, cardiology, neonatology, pediatrics and mental health.

"Regardless of where the patient is located, we can be at their bedside in several minutes," said physician Alan Shatzel, medical director of the Mercy Telehealth Network. "Literally, we compress time and space with this technology. No longer does distance affect a person's ability to access the best care possible."
