Why is this important?
Technology and data can be used to make our cities greener and more livable, healthcare more effective and education more accessible. There are however some important questions for government, businesses, research and education. Will everybody benefit equally from the digital city? Who owns the data? And can algorithms be controlled?
How did we do it?
Over a period of six months the Amsterdam Economic Board organized three design sessions with a broad range of stakeholders such as philosophers, citizen initiatives and knowledge and technology partners. During these design sessions, we discussed the future of the digital city.
