La nueva ciencia de las ciudades y las limitaciones del big data

La nueva ciencia de las ciudades y las limitaciones del big data | Tech and urban life | Scoop.it

Uno de los elementos más sugerentes del régimen discursivo de la smart city es su apelación al surgimiento de una nueva ciencia de las ciudades. En una era de esplendor tecnológico, apelar a la ciencia como catalizadora de una nueva forma de pensar y construir las ciudades resulta atractivo. Sin embargo, no es algo novedoso. De hecho, ya en 1913 el término The city scientific ya fue utilizado por George B. Ford como título de su conferencia en la quinta reunión anual de la National Conference on City Planning celebrada en Chicago (Shelton, Zooky Wigg).

The truth about smart cities: ‘In the end, they will destroy democracy'

The truth about smart cities: ‘In the end, they will destroy democracy' | Tech and urban life | Scoop.it

“Connecting things does not make the world smart” | Forum for the Future

“Connecting things does not make the world smart” | Forum for the Future | Tech and urban life | Scoop.it
You have to empower people for radical change, says Hugh Knowles, founder of the Internet of Things Academy and Head of Innovation at Forum for the Future.   Digital technologies can help drive genuinely radical systemic change in two basic ways. One is by changing the structure of information flows – new information, simplifying complex data, making the invisible visible, and so allowing people to make new decisions in new ways. The other is by providing people with platforms to self-organise. Connecting things does not make the world smart – it makes it full of information and this does not result in understanding or change. The acquisition and sharing of new information reaches its full potential when it meets a clear need and can provide people with the opportunity to act in way they could not have done before. For example, at the Internet of Things Academy we are building mobile, accurate air quality devices to help people change behaviour to avoid pollution hotspots and to create a new data set that can be used to lobby for change.
