What Does 'Smart' Mean for a City?

What Does 'Smart' Mean for a City? | leapmind | Scoop.it
The Smart City idea attracts hype and scepticism in dynamic balance; but it's a boring kind of balance. As something of a bystander until now and as an architect and citizen, I will attempt here to sieve out the essence of smart.

Hayden Theuerkauf's curator insight, March 21, 2013 10:34 PM

This article/website gives information on how a scientists have built an internet for robots, so that robots can exchange informations with eachother. This will become bigger and better in the future and allow vital information to be shared through each robot, and would essentially make it easier to maintain robots and the software.

Braden Costin's curator insight, March 22, 2013 2:14 AM

This article focuses on a World Wide Web for Robots. This Internet collects and stores all data that a robot has collectyed throughout it's day. Other Robots would be able to access this internet in the form of a query to an unknown problem. Essentially if one Robot takes a step forward so does every other. This would allow for lighter and smaller robots as they would only have to query the internet for any problems rather than going through memory for the solution.
