Peoples’ daily lives changed because of new developments.
During public debates, there is a tendency to talk about ‘Smart Cities’ with sociologists, policy makers or city planners. But disruptive innovations that have triggered societal change have come from industrial designers. Creators who have designed the smartphones, apps and new interactive technologies that have changed our lives this last decade. What’s their take on the smart city of the future? Two leaders in industry and research, Ad van Berlo (VanBerlo) and Marleen Stikker (De Waag Society), will discuss how they see peoples’ daily lives changed because of new developments; and in which direction they think we are headed.
