Abstract [en]

The contributions to this volume situate the processes of smart urbanisation in particular material, social and political contexts, ranging from Seoul, Dublin and Philadelphia to Cape Town, Abu Dhabi and Bristol. Collectively, they reveal that the digitisation of cities is unavoidably bound up in the governance of cities, existing material and social conditions, and messy processes of translating ambitious theoretical visions into real world applications. For future research on the ‘actually existing smart city’, we can benefit from historical insights on sociotechnical urban dramas from the past. We should also be attentive to scalar issues to understand the macro dynamics of smart and how ideas travel to other places as well as the micro dynamics of how smart influences the individual. Finally, there is a need to proactively develop alternative visions and pathways of smart that can support emancipatory and progressive modes of urban development. The future of smart cities is long and unsettled but it will have profound influence on urban life in the coming decades.
