Responsibility for the effects brought about by technological artifacts are thus no longer only attributed to their designer, producer, retailer or user, but to an ever-increasing semi-autonomous interoperability of products and services in intranets, and an IoT ecology that globally knows no firm standardization, though there are attempts. Notions of distributed responsibility must thus inform any transaction whether between city council and vendor, B2B, B2C or C2C (the Sharing Economy). ” This immanent understanding can only occur in dialogue and co-creation.

This problem is not specific to “smartification” and has been noted in other aspects of urban planning. There is a well-established body of research, for example, showing how the layout of urban spaces may affect the freedom of 24 K. Harrison movement of women (poorly lit streets or limited-use thoroughfares may cause women to fear being attacked in these spaces and thus limit their movement through urban space particularly after dark, see for example [11]. The lessons learnt from urban planning are also applicable to the integration of technologies into cities with the aim of making them “smarter”.

How can designers, developers and engineers enhance their existing practices and pay closer attention to the kinds of assumed users implicit in their technologies? One way forward might be to have more interdisciplinary development teams that include those whose interest is primarily with the users and citizens, who have expertise in human behaviours. ” That would certainly be one way to acquire a better understanding of what technologists call the “end user”—in this case, the citizen. ” [16]. Indeed, interdisciplinary collaboration between technical and social sciences seems key to developing smarter “smart cities”.
