A techno-optimist view widely held by publics, scholars, corporations and governments alike. Authorised by a dominant discourse advocating reliance upon conceptions of evidence and proof, science and technology, rationality and objectivity, we have convinced ourselves a detachment from, and an intelligence, power and technological control over the environment, our surroundings and ourselves (Adams 1998).

In this post, we make a brief review of the concept of Smart City, and introduce the topic of Internet of Things, wherein we explore the potential of open source technologies (software, hardware and standar). Read this post in Spanish Introduction: What Makes Cities Smart? The EPIC Project (EU Platform for Intelligent Cities) in relation to the Smart City definition notes that the current economic crisis, combined with growing citizen expectations, is increasing the pressure on cities to provide better infrastructure and more efficient services, often for less cost. Cooperation and information exchange are both key ideas in the Smart City paradigm. 2. 2.1.

The latest addition to Mark Shepherd’s Sentient City Survival Kit packages up the best lessons of the Situationists into a handy psychogeographical iPhone App.

Psychogeographical Survival In The Sentient City

The Serendipator has been nominated for the Transmediale 11 award and mixes whimsical instructions with deliberately confusing directions to encourage heightened consciousness of our urban surroundings. Some of the speculative facets of the Sentient City Survival Kit are more interesting still: imagining a slightly dystopian future where ubiquitous technology will fill our daily lives, the project re-purposes items of everyday utility as means of survival within the intelligent city of the near future.

Shepherd explores the potential of coffee cups to form cellular mesh networks on public transport and designs umbrellas which aim to disrupt computer vision enabled surveillance cameras. He has also designed a prototype RFID tagged pair of underwear to defend against illicit data sniffing. An Intelligent City Takes Shape In Portugal. Sustainable development initiatives take a bold turn in Portugal as a tech start-up unveils a model of a smart city with interconnected water, energy, waste management and climate control systems that can sustain about 150,000 people.

An Intelligent City Takes Shape In Portugal

Aptly dubbed the “City with a Brain,” the smart city project is located on the outskirts of Paredes in northern Portugal and is spearheaded by LivingPlanIT, an international business that specializes on innovative and sustainable city-scale technologies. The proposed project entails installing sensors that will monitor energy usage, temperature, and occupancy in each of the buildings in the city. Similar to the inner workings of the human brain, the information gathered by the sensors will be transmitted to a central system that may adjust the heat or power levels of buildings in real-time. “City with a Brain” is slated to be completed by 2015.

Inteligencia ciudadana en la metrópolis de los datos. Sobre la Smart city expo. Mientras por estos días en Barcelona se desarrolla la Smart City Expo, cabe hacernos algunas preguntas respecto a cómo se prefiguran esas ciudades inteligentes y de qué modo, en su seno, serán afectadas las instituciones culturales y el ejercicio ciudadano. Nuevas oportunidades y desafíos. De repente una de las obras clásicas de las artes mediales se convierte en una metáfora oportuna. En La ciudad legible(Legible city, 1989), de Jeffrey Shaw, el visitante puede montar una bicicleta estática y navegar las calles de una ciudad de palabras, una simulación 3D que se construye de sentidos.

Una ciudad de datos. Veintitrés años después, la esencia de la tan mentada “Smart city” tiene bastante que ver con el escenario de Shaw. Para empezar, en las metrópolis contemporáneas asistimos a un cambio que por obvio no deja de ser fundamental. Continuar leyendo en el blod del CCCB Lab.

Carlo Ratti: The Digitalization of Cities: Sketching a Future Urban Scenario

In the 1990s, scholars speculated about the impact of the ongoing digital revolution on the viability of cities. The mainstream view was that, as digital media and the Internet had killed distance, they would also kill cities. Reverb™ — Collaborate with everyone.
