Anthony Townsend is a visionary in the field of Smart Cities. He is a Senior Research Scientist at New York University’s Rudin Center for Transportation Policy and Management, and is also the author of 'Smart Cities: Big Data, Civic Hackers, and the Quest for a New Utopia', which was published in 2013. The book is the culmination of a decade of research, activism, and consulting at the intersection of urbanization and ubiquitous computing.
