Does making a city “smarter” automatically make it a better place for everyone? In The Smart Enough City: Putting Technology in Its Place to Reclaim Our Urban Future, author Ben Green suggests that our reliance on tech can actually cause injustice and inequality to spread in our cities. Join us in June as we discuss Green’s book and consider the “smart enough” applications of new technology that can make cities more just, democratic, responsible, innovative, and livable places.
The discussion was moderated by Arlene Ducao.
