For this month’s instalment of CityCast, the smart cities podcast from CityVerve, we had two esteemed guests join us in the studio. Stu Higgins, who heads up Cisco’s smart cities practice, and Simon Navin, who holds a similar role at Ordnance Survey, were on hand to discuss whether the term ‘smart cities’ is itself too limiting and how we should take other non-urban settlements into consideration. Elsewhere, talk extended to the challenge of using technology to bring communities together and the importance of connectivity in all of this. Meanwhile, Andy Beechener, CEO and founder of Republic of Things, was in the hot seat for our regular ‘Meet the Partners’ feature. Want to continue the conversation?
