Tecnoscienza launches special issue on data-driven cities

Tecnoscienza, the Italian journal of science and technology studies, has launched its special issue 'Data-Driven Cities: Digital Urbanism and its Proxies'.  

The editors introduce the topic by stating that "[even] if ‘big data’, ‘smart cities’ and ‘data-driven cities’ are merely useful buzzwords, they nevertheless evidence an expanding chatter of heterogeneous voices who are merging with and reshaping the urban environment. This introduction addresses the data-driven city by focusing on the concept of proxy to articulate its multiplicity."

The full journal is available on the Tecnoscienza website.
