The digitally advanced city

The digital city is data-centric using a city-wide digital twin to improve infrastructure and deliver services. All data owners/users benefit from an open and connected environment. Federated data–drawings, specifications, documents, analytical models, photos, reality meshes, IoT feeds, and enterprise resource and asset management–enables the digital twin. And immersive experiences for stakeholder/citizen engagement improves collaboration across departments, with city ecosystem, and citizens – delivering improved services and greater transparency.

Smart City: Hype, Utopia, Dystopia – where are we today and do we want to go?

Since roughly 2010, the subject Smart City – improved digitization of communities – was initially promoted by technology providers. This techno-economical view has changed strongly during the last years. Meanwhile the central question is the development of an equilibrium between three core factors: the ecological, social and techno-economical balance in the community of tomorrow. Technological, topics like interoperability, data structuring or analysis and the specific (mainly data based) business model come to the fore.

On a social level subjects like data sovereignty and government including data ethics, regain consciousness in the communal society. Since the 90’s, ecological „outbursts“ happened consistently, e.g. the climate convention 1992, which get „ripe“ only today based on different and increasing climate shocking events and where answers and measures are now requested.

Where does digitization of communities stand especially regarding these questions, e.g. on a national but also international comparison, e.g. China – USA – Europe?In many cases cities and communities just set off first digital steps with current technologies or to prepare for „5G“, where new technologies already wait in the wings.

Here poses the question: Where do we want to go and which central questions we should tackle before? Which relevance have „technoshocks“ and „socioshocks“ in the digital society of tomorrow? How do generate alternatives for equal living conditions in cities and rural communities? Do global design principles exist for politics, companies or the society of tomorrow, which we could or should use?
