The smart city has proved to be very good at tracking, but not so good at listening. There is plenty of available data out there, but a city will only be smart when it also starts considering the creativity of citizens and mixes it with this existing data. This will then provide hard facts which decision-makers can base their city planning decisions upon.
IT IS TIME TO BRING PEOPLE INTO THE SMART EQUATION
Studies (Frost & Sullivan) show that the highest trend in smart cities for the upcoming years is citizen engagement. Curiously, this is the only field that the smart city is not currently considering. In CHAOS we use this trend to unleash the potential of the smart city, making the new normal of cities about people and their skills and capability for collaboration, as the only lasting resource a city has.
Our ultimate purpose is to create better and more sustainable cities for everyone around the world.
