International Workshop on Urban Intelligence:
How Smart is Your City?
Cities are highly complex living systems that naturally evolve in spatial, demographic, social-economic and cultural terms and whose delicate state of balance depends on how they are affected and react to different forms of planning.
The concept of smart city has integrated urban planning strategies all over the world and has been developing in the last two decades, evolving from a mere techno-centric interpretation to one based on a progressive and more human-centric perspective of ICT-driven urban innovation and development where contextual variance ( environment, economy, social diversity and cultural specificities) is taken into account.
UNIT adopts a people-centred, age- gender- and culture- responsive approach to urban development that respects human rights and targets to citizens’ collective and individual well-being in a process where “no one will be left behind”.
The present workshop invites academia, industry, municipalities and all those that are interested or are working on this topic to participate, present their experience and/or case-studies and discuss the fundamental role played by ICT technology, namely AI and Robotics in answering the essential question: “What makes up a smart city?”
