There’s more to smart cities than technology efficiency. Than smart grids, smart transportation and smart public safety. It’s difficult to fall in love with a city because of solar panels, light rail or bicycle lanes. Cities are much more than the sum of new technology parts. It’s about the quality of life.
Smart public policy is more holistic. Policy that considers citizen health and happiness uncovers regulatory and technology priorities. Wellbeing can be measured. Citizen health can be improved.
