Reclaiming the “Smart” agenda for fair human outcomes enabled by technology

A full and very interesting blog by Dr Rick Robinson about ‘Smart Cities’, pointing out the vital points which I have been going on about for some time:   technology is not ‘Smart’ unless it’s used to create human value, and that Smart Cities must be about people first and foremost (and this may not even include ‘technology’ in some circumstances).

Well worth a read.
