Video: The digital canvas presented by smart cities

Carlo RattiThe Internet of Things has the potential to revolutionize urban infrastructure, making cities less congested, less polluted and more energy-efficient, says Carlo Ratti, head of MIT’ s Senseable City Lab and an expert on the impact of technology on urban environments.

It’ s a very interesting time for cities and the reason is that all the digital technologies that have changed our lives over the past 10 or 20 years are now entering physical space. It’ s about the internet becoming the Internet of Things and, as such, the way we understand, we design and we live in cities is being radically transformed.

says Carlo Ratti in an exclusive video interview with I-CIO magazine.
