Stephen Goldsmith: «There are different ways of exchanging information»

By  | 2017

Professor Stephen Goldsmith reflects on the use of new technologies, sensors or social media to make cities operate better. He proposes changes in the way cities operate to deliver services more effectively but also in the way people communicate with the city, holding people more accountable. Therefore, Goldsmith explains that it implies a transformation in the way the government works and in the way it is accountable to its citizens.



Stephen Goldsmith is the Daniel Paul Professor of the Practice of Government and the Director of the Innovations in American Government Program at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. He directs Data-Smart City Solutions and served as the Deputy Mayor of NY and the Mayor of Indianapolis.
