The city of the future will be smart, dense with sensors and data-generating citizens. But how much control will its residents have over how the city works? What will the state of their privacy be? And what will a smart Eindhoven look like? The State of Eindhoven programme manager Linda Vlassenrood will be among the speakers at the Smart Cities theme night.
The Eindhoven Library will host the event on Thursday 26 May in partnership with Tegenlicht Meet Up Eindhoven. Expert speakers will address questions raised by the documentary show Tegenlicht’s Smart Cities episode. For instance, Jean-Paul Close, the initiator of the sustainability project Stad van Morgen, will home in on (r)evolutionary solutions to local problems experienced worldwide, approaching the issue from a philosophical standpoint. Also on the agenda: open data and how cities can deal with it in smart ways.
In her talk, Linda Vlassenrood, programme manager for The State of Eindhoven, will discuss Eindhoven’s transition to smartness and what it has to do to get there. She will also speak about the programme’s activities.
Access to the theme night is based on a donation. The evening is in Dutch.
