Smart Cities Critique
Think of Smart Cities as extremely complex version of process control. With the added complexity of a mix of difficult to predict people. It also reminds me of algorithm based AI systems we developed. SimCIty also inspired us to look at systems that would control enterprises. That kind of effort continues today. I liked seeing this article which looks at a critique of the Smart City 'movement'. There is a long way to go. The article links to a manifesto that contrasts smart city to smart citizen.
