Abstract

Smart cities will be the standard of urban living, according to the United Nations… but are your needs, as a citizen, being considered?
In this talk, we will reflect, together, on: Why do smart cities need to become people centered? What is really being transformed in the city? How can people become the center of this transformation?

Imagine yourself, living in a city, in 20 years from now…

– Where more than half of the world’s population shifted from rural to urban areas…
…and you will live among them.

– Where hundreds of trillions of dollars/euros have been spent on revolutionary initiatives to change infrastructure, digital technology and interconnected intelligent networks…
…and your data will be its fuel.

– Where smart cities are the standard of urban living…
…and your needs were not considered?

These first part of the statements are not product of your imagination, they are the top three projections from the United Nations for urban living by 2050, so it is important to think about them (or start taking some action).
