This book critically examines ‘smart city’ discourse in terms of governance initiatives, citizen participation, and policies which place emphasis on the ‘citizen’ as an active recipient and co-producer of technological solutions to urban problems. The current hype around ‘smart cities’ and digital technologies has sparked debates in the fields of citizenship, urban studies, and planning surrounding the rights and ethics of participation. It has also sparked debates around the forms of governance these technologies actively foster. This book presents new sociotechnological systems of governance that monitor citizen power, trust-building strategies, and social capital. It calls for new data economics and digital rights for a city founded on normative ideals rather than neoliberal ones. It adopts a prescriptive approach, arguing that a ‘reloaded’ smart city should foster citizenship as a new set of civil and social rights and the ‘citizen’ as a subject vested with active and meaningful forms of participation and political power. Ultimately, the book questions the utility of the ‘smart city’ project for radical municipalism, proposing a technological enough but more democratic city – an ‘intelligent city’, in fact. Offering useful contributions to ‘smart city’ initiatives for the protection of emerging digital citizenship rights and socially accrued benefits, this book will draw the interest of researchers, policymakers, and professionals in the fields of urban studies, urban planning, urban geography, computing and technology studies, urban politics, and urban economics.

This book analyzes e-participation in smart cities. In recent decades, information and communication technologies (ICT) have played a key role in the democratic political and governance process by allowing easier interaction between governments and citizens, and the increased ability of citizens to participate in the production chain of public services. E-participation plays and important role in the development of smart cities and smart communities , but it has not yet been extensively studied. This book fills that gap by combining empirical and theoretical research to analyze actual practices of citizen involvement in smart cities and build a solid framework for successful e-participation in smart cities. The book is divided into three parts. Part I discusses smart technologies and their role in improving e-participation in smart cities. Part II deals with models of e-participation in smart cities and the organization issues affecting the implementation of e-participation; these chapters analyze the efficiency of governance models in relation to the establishment of smart cities. Part III proposes incentives to motivate increased participation by governments and cititzenry within the smart cities context. Written by an international panel of experts and practitioners, this book will be a convenient source of information on e-participation in smart cities and will be valuable to academics, researchers, policy-makers, public managers, citizens, international organizations and anyone who has a stake in enhancing citizen engagement in smart cities.

"This dissertation explores the concepts of coded engagement as they relate to the role of citizens’ ability to participate in smart cities. Coded engagement is what we call the perspective of citizen-as-sensor in the smart city, as it meets the ubiquitous world of interconnected sensing-technologies and big data. Because of the perceived difficulties in harnessing public participation and the hyperbolic promises of smart city technologies, coded engagement stands as a developing mode of engagement between local governments and citizens. The primary method of realizing coded engagement is often through the harvesting of data from social media, cameras, or citizens themselves to fuel data-driven methods for smart cities to offer citizen-centric services. The literature review presents public participation in the context of its role as a cornerstone of democracy and follows its evolution to a technologically enabled method for engaging with citizens. The discussion highlights how public engagement practices have followed increasing interests in identifying communities of interest and using technologically-driven methods to capture wider and more representative participants. However, as Web 2.0 technologies become more increasingly involved, so does the increased concern for the nature and quality of actors and data harnessed through these mediums.A crowd-sensing system has been designed to “remove the black-box” of many proprietary algorithms designed to harvest public opinion from user-generated content. A novel methodological approach is provided that conflates multiple attributes from social media to identify communities of practice and interest within local geographic contexts. Through the use of spatially situated social networks, space-time analysis, and natural language processing, inferred links could be explored through a 3-D visualization platform in the pursuit of informed decision-making. Two case studies are also provided on the City of Toronto. The first contextualizes corporate control on a Toronto Waterfront community as vast amounts of public resources were leveraged for a failed implementation of an intelligent community where citizens could provide real-time feedback to community leaders through crowd-platforms. The second case study provides a deeper context into the City of Toronto’s pursuits to become a smart city leading the 21st century. However, the mechanisms of governance and control of corporate interests have a grip on the future role of public participation in the smart city. Namely, participation converges through the private ownership of citizen-centric services that are fueled by collecting the passive contributions of the public"--

This volume provides the most current research on smart cities. Specifically, it focuses on the economic development and sustainability of smart cities and examines how to transform older industrial cities into sustainable smart cities. It aims to identify the role of the following elements in the creation and management of smart cities:• Citizen participation and empowerment • Value creation mechanisms • Public administration• Quality of life and sustainability• Democracy• ICT• Private initiatives and entrepreneurship Regardless of their size, all cities are ultimately agglomerations of people and institutions. Agglomeration economies make it possible to attain minimum efficiencies of scale in the organization and delivery of services. However, the economic benefits do not constitute the main advantage of a city. A city’s status rests on three dimensions: (1) political impetus, which is the result of citizens’ participation and the public administration’s agenda; (2) applications derived from technological advances (especially in ICT); and (3) cooperation between public and private initiatives in business development and entrepreneurship. These three dimensions determine which resources are necessary to create smart cities. But a smart city, ideal in the way it channels and resolves technological, social and economic-growth issues, requires many additional elements to function at a high-performance level, such as culture (an environment that empowers and engages citizens) and physical infrastructure designed to foster competition and collaboration, encourage new ideas and actions, and set the stage for new business creation. Featuring contributions with models, tools and cases from around the world, this book will be a valuable resource for researchers, students, academics, professionals and policymakers interested in smart cities.

Within the most recent discussion on smart cities and the way this vision is affecting urban changes and dynamics, this book explores the interplay between planning and design both at the level of the design and planning domains’ theories and practices. Urban transformation is widely recognized as a complex phenomenon, rich in uncertainty. It is the unpredictable consequence of complex interplay between urban forces (both top-down or bottom-up), urban resources (spatial, social, economic and infrastructural as well as political or cognitive) and transformation opportunities (endogenous or exogenous). The recent attention to Urban Living Lab and Smart City initiatives is disclosinga promising bridge between the micro-scale environments, with the dynamics of such forces and resources, and the urban governance mechanisms. This bridge is represented by those urban collaborative environments, where processes of smart service co-design take place through dialogic interaction with and among citizens within a situated and cultural-specific frame.
