Smarter Cities Session

Consciousness with Anuraj Gambhir

Smarter Cities - Consciousness

Smarter Cities - Consciousness

The first session, Consciousness, looked at the use of technology in making cities better places to live. Anuraj Gambhir noted that the term 'smart cities' means different things in different contexts - it could be about basic infrastructure development in one context or about different levels of tech development in another context. He spoke about many forms of futuristic tech that will bring great change to our cities.

There are three different "horizons" of tech that companies/governments find themselves in:

1) the improvements to the existing;

2) the next generation of the current;

3) the completely new/transformative and visionary.

The tech that Anuraj spoke of included IOT and IIOT (Internet of Things and Industrial IOT), transport, AI, etc. A popular question was whether Big Tech would use this data for insidious purposes, considering the track record of Alphabet/Facebook etc. and whether there will be a distinction drawn from the privatisation of public data and the commercialisation of it.
