How do we make decisions about where to live, how to get around, what places we value? If we believe that more and better information leads to better, sustainable decisions, where do we get our information? With contributions from experts in research, design, and the technology industry, Intelligent Cities offers an in-depth look at the past, present, and future of urban development. This wide-ranging and readable book draws on the museum’s year-long Intelligent Cities initiative, an exploration of how data and information technology impact the way cities look, feel, and function. The book features original and award winning infographics commissioned by the museum and provides a context for today's issues in the history of technology and urban form, the telephone, the computer, mass media, and their impacts on human settlement and society.
