An international working group has been established under the direction of Prof. T. M. Vinod Kumar for studying the effective results of cities “smartization” around the world. 8 countries are under examination: Canada, China, Germany, Greece, India, Italy, Thailand, and USA. The goal is verifying what are the real advantages ICT and biopolitics of control can bring to the real life of people and, eventually, what the costs of the “smart city” labelled approach are.
The ISB takes part in this research group with Antonio Caperna, Guglielmo Minervino, Gianluca Lecoque, Silvia Paldino, Eleni Ploumidi, Stefano Serafini, and Themis Pellas.
