Eric Lundquist, Vice President of Strategic Content for Ziff Davis Enterprise, speaks with MIT’s Visiting Scholar Katja Schechtner about how technology and planning can create smart cities.

About MIT’s Smart Cities: “The Smart Cities Group pursues sustainability, livability, and social equity through technological and design innovation. We take the particular perspective that cities are systems of systems, and that there are emerging opportunities to introduce digital nervous systems, intelligent responsiveness, and optimization at every level of system integration – from that of individual devices and appliances (a traditional concern of the Media Lab) to that of buildings, and ultimately to that of complete cities and urban regions.”—MIT Professor William J. Mitchell
