The Smartest Cities In The World

The Smartest Cities In The World
The definition of a “smart city” continues to evolve along with greater data availability to support assessment and the ever-developing effort to provide citizens with the best attributes to improve urban life. The author writes, “Smart cities are a complex phenomenon and any effort to measure them needs to contain breadth and depth of indicators—and this year I have that. I have added several more information technology related indicators, like broadband Internet and the number of mobile applications that leverage open data initiatives. But I also have added low-tech indicators to ascertain how much a city is embracing shared mobility, like measuring the number of bikes and cars currently in their sharing programs. I have also added citizen participation metrics, such as the number of citizens engagement events held each year and percentage of citizens who vote in local elections.”
