Ubiquitous computing, mobile devices, and big data come together to give rise to a new urban paradigm being celebrated by many technology corporations and local governments alike: the smart city. Yet, the current hype around smart cities often tends to be technocratic. What evidence is there to suggest that a smart city can provide genuine answers to a number of complex problems cities face?<br><br>This webinar will move the smart city discussion beyond IoT and public wifi.
