New Challenge

Boulenguer, C., and Perez, Y. “Smart City or Smart Cities: How to Define This New Challenge”

- Annual Conference

The paper “Smart City or Smart Cities: How to Define This New Challenge” (Boulenguer, C., and Perez, Y.) will be presented at the 6th Florence Conference on the Regulation of Infrastructures (16 June 2017). 

ABSTRACT

The literature emphasizes several visions of smart cities, in which sciences and their applications are considered either like levers of transformation of the territories (Mahizhnan, 1999) or as an indicator of efficiency (economic, social, ecological), “which can make a city economically competitive, efficiently managed and enjoyable to read” (Attour and Rallet, 2014). If “the use of new technologies and data is the prerequisite to any logic of Smart Cities ” (Rochet, 2014), the main aim of this article is to provide us with a pragmatic definition of the smart city in which intelligence is conceived as “ the strategic use of digital technology in urban planning and management ” (Guyonnaud, 2016). Beyond the promises of energy efficiency and optimization of flows (monetary, human, commercial…), this work seeks to recall the epistemology of the term of “smart city” by registering it in the history of the urban forms – too often isolated of the reflection.
