Lecture Kas Oosterhuis at Symposium "Smart City, Smart Environment", Internet Of Things IoT Day Rotterdam, 9th of April:
SMART CITY – SMART ENVIRONMENT?
Since Kevin Ashton coined the term Internet of Things in 1999 the issue has, especially
over the last couple of years, developed with an astonishing speed. Now, some 15 years
in, the IoT has changed from focusing on ‘things’ to an emphasis on ‘everything’, with a
more recent articulation into ‘people’. Parallel came the development of the Smart City;
however still with a background to much focused on/derived from available infrastructure
and ict and less on the needs and wishes of the cities inhabitants. We believe a further
development and in particular acceptance of technologies such as the internet of
‘everything’ should be accompanied with a fundamental debate with its citizens on means
and purpose; it should be embedded in a vision of how our environment, in particular
cities, should develop. The role of technology in general should be a serving one instead of
one focused on control and/or infrastructure.
