What is the future of smart cities? The smart city represents an idealized attempt to reconstruct metropolitan centers In the wake of techno-economic disruption. Beyond the Fordist city and its structural dependence on encrusted bureaucratic systems, smart cities are viewed as highly digitized environments. But what is the role of citizens in the design and evolution of smart cities? What policies are needed to advance socially responsible innovation? And what role will university's play in this? This conference brings together academics, policymakers, entrepreneurs, and technologists to better understand the future of cities.
The Thirteenth International Conference on Technology, Knowledge, and Society featured plenary sessions by some of the world's leading thinkers and innovators in the field.
