The smart city you love to hate: Exploring the role of affect in hybrid urbanism | The Mobile City | Smart City | Scoop.it

Below the abstract of my paper and talk. It explores the potential role of affect in the smart city. IMO this is a largely ignored domain when it comes to rationalized interventions with the aid of ‘smart technologies’ that are aimed at efficiency and optimization. ...

conf @EchelleInconnue : Domenico Di Siena  - 06 juin > Sentient City : de la smart city à la ville de la connaissance | Smart City | Scoop.it

JEUDI 06 JUIN à 19h30

 

Une Sentient City est un modèle de ville intelligente qui améliore la communication et les échanges entre les citoyens pour favoriser des processus d'auto-organisation. Les citoyens, en connexion constante entre eux, ne sont pas seulement des usagers, mais des individus capables de générer des processus d'intelligence collective, les mêmes qui génèrent une identité locale commune.

Une Ville de la Connaissance est une ville où chaque habitant est porteur et producteur de tous types de connaissances. Un écosystème où chaque habitant peut s’entendre comme un acteur vif de la ville.

A la base de cette vision, nous rencontrons aussi l’idée d’une ville open source où les administrations publiques sont capables de laisser les citoyens “habiter” et transformer son entourage physique; une ville qui laisse le code de gestion ouvert pour que tous puissent en connaitre l’essence et ainsi l'activer personnellement pour l’améliorer.

En Espagne, l’esprit d’expérimentation est très intense pour un urbanisme de plus en plus participatif. Les citoyens semblent avoir retrouvé un intérêt fort pour se charger directement de la vie de la cité. Tout cela joue en rôle très important dans les processus d’organisation en réseau et le partage continue des différentes expériences et connaissances.

Nous analyserons tout cela depuis le mouvement des indignés à aujourd'hui.

20 Smart City Technologies for 2013 and Beyond

20 Smart City Technologies for 2013 and Beyond | Smart City | Scoop.it

Santiago Chile announced they’re going to become a “smart city” in 2013, and is just one example of a growing number of areas around the globe preparing and modernizing for the future.


In fact demographers have long predicted the mass urbanization of metropolitan areas across the world. According to the United Nations, by the year 2050, 80% of the world will be living in urban areas. The equivalent of seven Manhattan size cities will be built each year until 2050. For these cities to thrive they must use smart technology to its fullest. Let’s take a look at what’s available now and what’s coming down the pipe...

Altaira Wallquist's curator insight, May 26, 2015 11:30 PM

This article and list goes over tons of new urban ideas that have a lot to do with sustainability and new urbanism. It shows a lot of energy efficient services and smart technology.

 

This connects to the Unit 7 TEK on new urbanism because it shows how urban places are changing for the future and how urban areas working toward sustainability may look in the future. It gives insight into some incoming or possible smart technologies.

Ricardo Cabeza de Vaca's curator insight, May 27, 2015 2:23 AM

I think this article gives us a peek into the future. As cities develop so does technology. This shows us as technology improves so does the lifestyle of the people from the city. This article talks about how technology could for example improve security in the area by facial recognition and you could have urban farming by using vertical farming.  I believe that we should invest more into technology as it will help us tremendously now and in the future, letting us as the article says for example wirelessly charge every car in the city.

This outstanding infographic (courtesy of postscapes.com) begins with some information about our current state of urbanization.

 

Did you know that 1.3 million people are moving to cities each week?! It then explains the need for smart cities and delves into what is required to establish these intelligent connected environments, how the smart city may take various forms in the developing worlds and what specific technologies are necessary to achieve such grand goals in practice.

There is an evolution taking place where politics, policy, technology, the environment, and the economy all intersect. This movement towards technical, empirically driven local policy making could be our saving grace.This could be the future of government.
