Ten Mistakes to Avoid in Smart Cities, 1.1

August 16, 2017

By Ted Cuzzillo

A smart city  is a city that connects disparate data sources to make more of existing resources than was possible, supplanting boilerplate solutions such as more roads, bloated administrations, and bigger budgets. The smart city buzz is loud, but smart cities themselves are still young. Vendors, leaders, and administrators are making countless mistakes as they create and manage smart cities. In this Ten Mistakes to Avoid, Ted Cuzzillo identifies the mistakes raised most often or most forcefully in six months of reading and talking to vendors, city leaders, and smart city advocates.
