Are Smart Cities Really That Smart?
Thu 19 November 2015, 17.30-19.00
Arnolfini, Bristol
£8 / £7

Cities, governments and companies are devoting enormous resources to making cities smart: driverless cars; demand management of traffic; digital mapping; Big Data; new forms of energy use; new ways to encourage the saving of high streets – all devoted to making traditional services and networks more efficient through the use of digital and telecommunication technologies, for the benefit of all. The Festival of the Future City has looked at many aspects of smart cities and now debates how valuable and efficient they will prove to be. Speakers include: Charlie Catlett (University of Chicago Computation Institute); Evgeny Morozov (author of To Save Everything, Click Here: The Folly of Technological Solutionism); Adam Greenfield (Urbanscale and author of the forthcoming The City Is Here For You To Use); Eva Gladek (Metabolic, Netherlands); and Stephen Hilton (Bristol City Council's Connecting Bristol programme, which aims to position Bristol as a leading European Smart, Green and Digital City).
