A Quick Course in Smart Cities


Five lecture sessions starting tonight at 6-00pm at Arizona State University to a graduate class of geographers and planners on Smart Cities. Monday, Wednesday and Friday this week and Wednesday and Friday the following week. Two lectures per session for about 1 hour 40 minutes in total. Graduate students on CASA’s MSc on Smart Cities and Urban Analytics might like to see these lectures and I will post them after I have given them and let you know. But parallel to this and essential background to the first lecture session are Hannah Fry’s BBC Radio 4 programmes on Computing Britain. You can download these as podcasts or stream them by clicking here. The course text is Anthony Townsend’s book Smart Cities – actually essential background as well, a review of which you can read by clicking here, and my own paper with the future ICT crowd on Smart Cities of the Future that you can download here too.
