|Smart City Diaries TV Video Series|
|Smart City Diaries is a documentary television series that showcases the phenomenon of digital transformation in small and large cities in the developed and developing world. Destination cities will have undertaken smart city initiatives to transform the way they manage their city operations and provide information and services to their citizens. Each city has unique physical, social and cultural qualities; the series will highlight individuals within these cultures to understand how rapidly changing technologies impact how they live, work, play and learn.
The series will be hosted by a mother-and-daughter team. Their perspectives differ as do their attitudes and levels of comfort with new technologies: one is a baby boomer, the other a millennial. One was CIO for a small California city, the other is a musician, songwriter, social justice blogger and social media expert. They are both smart and sassy, ready to explore a range of cities and the people who are impacted by Smart City transformations. Through the eyes of these two women, each show will reveal how these unique, global cities approach meeting the quality-of-life demands of residents, businesses and visitors through increased use of technology in an era of the Internet of Things, shifting populations and shrinking budgets and resources.
NOTE: The term “citizen” is used here to mean city resident – it is not intended to connote any legal status.
