Monica Bradley is joined by Professors Marcus Foth, Founder and Director of the Urban Infomatics Research Lab at QUT and Marek Kowalkiewicz the PwC Chair in Digital Economy to discuss smart cities.
They explore the social, spacial and technical aspects of urban interactions as they relate to Australia’s cities and the digital economy. Marcus researches the future of cities; where citizens take an active role in how we shape our living environments. Marcus articulates where the current conversation of smart cities is limited, and what is made possible when you consider the city as a platform on top of which citizens, governments, and corporations co-create a sustainable environment.
We deep dive into this research topic as it relates to Brisbane, Australia, Singapore and Rio de Janiero.
