It is the age of the smart city

The city of Split, Croatia has undergone a transformation. Lived in urban spaces have transformed into information streams. All quantifiable data is collected and processed to maximise the efficiency of the city. A city where Fiaka was a state of mind. [fiaka: relaxed, lazy]

There is an increasing discrepancy between the data the system is capturing and data that is interpreted. The diversity and nuances of emotions, perceptions, and interpretations of the citizens that build their city. Essential elements for the acquisition of knowledge and wisdom.

Will this human element of the smart city fall through the cracks in the bricks and mortar during the digital age?
