How to design a smart city that’s built on empowerment—not corporate surveillance

 Montag, 2. März 2020

Written by Dan Wu and Greg Lindsay and originally published on Coop-News, the article discusses future visions for cities and what smart cities scenarios would entail in terms of surveillance and data monetization. The authors advocate for a city vision which empowers residents and smart urbanism is a tool, and not an end in itself. In this direction, forms of cooperative housing could use the support of smart technologies whilst warranting greater autonomy and independence of communities.
