I’m back with another bonus episode of the podcast that brings together multiple guests answers to the question “where to next with Smart Cities and Communities?” As it’s #selfcareseptember to round out the theme of health and wellbeing, this time I’m sharing with you the answers from our guests this month.
You’ll hear from Katherine Flynn from Episode 127, Monica Olyslagers from Episode 128, Dr. Katherine Loflin from Episode 129, Sophia Arkinstall from Episode 130 and Declan Edwards from Episode 132, which will be out on Monday.
There are a couple of main themes in this episode. You’ll hear these guests talk a lot about using data for various aspects of health and safety within cities, and the privacy implications that come from that, so how do we strike that balance between protecting individual privacy but also using data to keep people safe and well and supported when they’re experiencing health or wellbeing challenges, and as Declan puts it, between Smart citizens and happy citizens.
All the guests agree that it won’t be a one-size-fits-all solution for any place or person, and in fact there are parallels to be drawn between the way medicine is moving to a personalised health care model using a mix of technological advances and greater human engagement in health practices, and the way cities and communities need to use the technology available and also have great citizen engagement practices.
As always I hope you enjoy listening to this episode as much as I enjoyed making it.
