Smart cities in XXIst century: the potential and risks of smart technologies in city rebranding

   This monograph puts forward the modern concept of a ‘smart city’ based on smart management, a smart human environment and smart technologies in city communication systems. Leading world practices on how to implement smart technologies in cities are examined, including those of Singapore, Vienna, Copenhagen, Dubai and Songdo. The dangers and risks involved in introducing intellectual technologies into social life are brought to the fore. These include cyber crime, the digital divide, the dehumanization of social space and a fall in society’s creativity levels with the onset of a technocratic existence. The monograph develops the concept of promoting smart technologies in rebranding Russia’s cities by critically examining the experience of Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Novosibirsk and Kazan in this area. The authors are of the opinion that Russia’s ambitious aims for creating a digital economy depend largely on the successful formation of smart cities in Russia as centres of innovative creativity and development of human potential.

This monograph will be of interest to politicians and state actors, specialists in public relations and managers of all levels.
