Product Description


The Age of Intelligent Cities book trilogy is truly a magnificent piece of work with conceptual and empirical elements interwoven to produce the emerging fabric and thread for 21st century theories, policies and practices related to and focusing on how more than two out of three of humans live, work, play and hopefully survive and prosper: in the small, medium and mega-size urban centers on planet earth. Science, technology, innovation and entrepreneurship empowered by knowledge and creativity are the essential elements of the intelligent cities of the future and will thus define and shape the age we are entering following the information revolution age: this is the age of the smart city and this book will serve as our intellectual compass to navigate our way towards an era where hopefully "technological intelligence" will be in harmony with and accompanied by human, social and political enlightenment.

Professor Elias G. Carayannis, George Washington University, USA.

The Age of Intelligent Cities provides a comprehensive view of the shaping of urban intelligent environments. The way it outlines technological trends and puts them into a wider context is unsurpassed. The book is universal in scope, well arranged, and insightful, providing tools for understanding and planning intelligent cities. It is a definitive landmark that deserves to gain a wide readership and a must for both academics and practitioners concerned with our urban future.

Professor Ari-Veikko Anttiroiko, University of Tampere, Finland.


Nearly all of texts published so far on intelligent cities and smart environments are edited books, capturing the state-of-the-art within the field. Sole authored books written to push beyond this and force a step change in understanding and knowledge are rare. So it is a particular pleasure to come across one written by an academic of standing, who bases their representation of the ongoing debate over intelligent cities and smart environments on the findings of successful research projects. As a result, the singular insights this book on intelligent cities offers are turnkey and allow much of the material already published on smart environments to be integrated as part of an overarching and authoritative narrative.

Professor Mark Deakin, Edinburgh Napier University, UK.
