Smart People for Smart Cities: A Behavioral Framework for Personality and Roles

Introduction

Creative, sustainable, and livable are some of the key features of the smart city. Developing a smart city may involve various domain experts such as consultants, corporations, marketing specialists, and city officials to frame how the smart city could be conceptualized, understood, and planned.

A smart city may be considered as an assemblage of technologies such as information and communication technologies (ICT), infrastructure, smart transport, and e-governance to increases competitiveness and administrative efficiency, as well as social inclusion.

Since 2011, contributions to the smart city have been critically scrutinized from different viewpoints, such as science and technology, politics, economy, government mentality studies, and ideological critique. In general, smart cities create a relation between technology and society. This process is related to the actor-network theory (ANT), which focuses on the making of sociotechnical networks and how certain actors try to create for their interest.
