Smart Citizens talks #4: The i-City

What are the urban, social and economic implications of ICT and how could technology be truly inclusive?

Half a century ago, the television and communication technology was debated between apocalyptic visions and integrated-optimistic opinions. Today, we debate technological innovation in the same way: are Information and Communication damaging social relations or are instead an opportunity to build a new, better, society? This question is at the center of any technological innovation and we should not stop to ask it. What is the impact, and are opportunities and risks of ICT for contemporary cities?

This event is English spoken. Moderated by Frank Kresin, until 2017 research director at Waag Society, now managing director at DesignLab TU Twente.
