Re: Big Brother
What you all have noted is the broader question of the "Right to Privacy"--which is virtually non-existent.     Although Europe still seems to think we can somehow stay "private" as exemplified by the moves they've made against Google.

Re: Big Brother
You are not alone @bayte--the challenge we ordinary folks have is that we have to somehow mitigate it all--things that we really don't have any control off-do we? The question is how can we be able to stay safe in the "Virtual Wild Wild West"?

Re: Big Brother
I've notice a lot more installation of LED lights in terms of things like street lights. 

It's a welcome improvement. LED can do more, and it is more efficient. Good to see cities join the 21st century by utilizing tech to solve problems.

Smart Cities also allow companies to track data on residents. Speed light cameras and other cameras in smart ciites can include facial recognition technology similar to what Facebook uses.

As long as security measures are put in place smart cities provide value.

Re: Big Brother
@afwriter. I agree. When any entity has too much of one thing, it can be abused. I see this data being abused in a bad way.

Re: Big Brother
@afwriter. I totally agree. What will be done with this data? How will the data be used? I see security risks with collecting all this data.

Re: Many Smart City Applications
@elizabethv: At the end of the day, the rule will work if new cultural norms are set. It's like observing the right of way rules. I was so relieved when I first noticed its ingenuity. Back in New Delhi, there was no such thing and when the traffic volumes grew, congestion was compounded when each driver tried to get ahead regardless of the impact it had on the traffic flow overall.

Re: Big Brother
Yes-but they are balking--we have to stay vigilant.  On a side note, though, this is a cool little thing that has happened in Mississipi thought you all might enjoy..as I wish you all a great w-end:
