Sentient Cities and Stephen Graham

  • PEP-NET has really kept moving – I take back all my initial skepticism! The latest item is a note on the annual conference of the Association of Internet Researchers in Copenhagen last week, including reference to a talk given by Prof Stephen Graham of Durham who describes the implications of new media technologies for urban life and the proliferation of urban surveillance systems which are increasingly automated through computer software. It also mentions Copenhagen Living Lab which tried to find answers how public administrations but also enterprises could meet the challenges of a changing society in terms of technological revolution and demographical changes through user driven innovations by working on the concept of user driven innovations out of the daily users life by e.g. running a whole retirement community as a living lab. Currently experimenting with an online platform to support the process of user driven innovation on a variety of topics.
