ABC at Harvard University on The City 2.0: smart People, Places, Planning
Urban vitality and sustainable urban living is one of the great challenges of the ‘New Urban World’. In the light of these challenges, a new term has been introduced: ‘smart’ (or ‘intelligent’) cities. A smart city aims to improve its performance using, in particular through an intelligent governance of knowledge, information and digital technology.
