Smart Cities: All Hype or a Platform for Change?

Listen on

Episode notes

In this episode, we explore the origin and potential impact of smart cities. We look back on the technological and economic successes of the 2012 Olympic Games; debate the use of people’s data to improve city infrastructure; and highlight the need to ensure that smart city technology is developed to be inclusive, not a commodity. 

Joining us in this conversation are Dr Larissa Suzuki, senior product manager for automatic machine learning at ORACLE; and Andrew Comer, director of the cities business unit at BuroHappold Engineering.

New episodes of ‘Create the Future: An Engineering Podcast’ every other Tuesday.
