Smart Technology and the Threat to Privacy: Who is Watching Whom?

November 05, 2019 / SUSAN MORROW

In my previous post, I talked about the factors behind a city, such as artificial intelligence and cyber-physical systems. Data within the smart city is analogous to blood that courses through the veins of the city, giving life to the structures within. A smart city is smart because it works to better our human environment needs, such as more efficient energy systems and building, and transport. Our data feeds the analytics that drive the mechanisms behind the sustainable and efficient operations of the smart pieces of the city. To best see how, where, and why our data is being harvested and used, we can look to some current examples of how governing bodies within cities are implementing smart tech.
