Is a smart city more about people or technology? What would a smarter New York City look like? How can we ensure that a smart city is not a nightmare for privacy? In this episode of IBM thinkLeaders podcast, we are joined by Mike Barlow (coauthor of Smart Cities, Smart Future, managing partner at Cumulus Partners) & Dan Wu (Privacy counsel and legal engineer at Immuta). We talk sensors, optimization, and the need for greater civic engagement when building smart cities. We also get into whether smart cities will usher in a Utopia or Dystopia, and how smart cities may reinvent democracy. Connect with us + the guests: @IBMthinkLeaders @ImmutaData @mike7pilot “For me, a smart city is about thinking about the process of making smarter decisions and more capacity. And that includes not only physical technological infrastructure but also, and a lot of people forget this, it's the scientific and civic infrastructure. How we make decisions.” -Dan Wu “I would define smart cities as places that use digital technologies, and this is key, 21st-century marketing techniques to communicate with citizens, to engage with citizens and to inspire higher levels of citizen engagement in the ongoing development of public policy. This is absolutely essential. In other words, they have to be democracy incubators. We have to reinvent democracy and grassroots participation in the city.” -Mike Barlow BIOS Mike Barlow is an award-winning journalist, prolific author, and business strategy consultant.
