Territories in transition: placing digital intelligence at the heart of public utilities
The theme of the ASTEE 2016 congress in Issy-les-Moulineaux is DIGITAL INTELLIGENCE AT THE HEART OF OUR PUBLIC UTILITIES
It looks at the wide-ranging question marks hanging over the effect the digital “revolution” is having, the pitfalls to avoid, the new avenues to be explored, social acceptability, protection of privacy and more… Smart cities or territories are not an end goal but perhaps a means that can be leveraged in the approaches we adopt in terms of sustainable development, improving quality of life and respecting citizens. These questions take centre-stage in the contributions gathered within this document. Providing a preview of the congress and insight into the main issues it deals with, these contributions are brimming with ideas, viewpoints and personal experiences concerning the major transitions our territories are going through today. For the first time, this document includes video interviews with prominent figures from the environmental and digital sectors.
