Cities are the closest the analogue world comes to a network. They are at the forefront of business and cultural life and both are increasingly defined by digitalization. What are the features of the ‘smart city’ and how is digitalization making them more livable? How should the smart city ecosystem and its data be governed? What are the barriers and enablers to build sustainable digital urban lives?
