Elena Simperl: Qrowd and the city: Designing people-centric smart cities

November 19, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Smart cities are as much about the needs, expectations and values of the people they serve as they are about the underlying technology. In this talk, I am going to present several areas of system design where human and social factors play a critical role, from fostering participation to augmented intelligence and responsible innovation. I will present ongoing challenges, solutions and opportunities, drawing from recent studies in Qrowd, a Horizon 2020 programme proposing a humane AI approach for transport and mobility.
