Each of us belongs to different communities: at work, leisure, politics, health … but
the fact is that daily life is reducing physical contacts. By contrast, the numbers
of digitally connected people are increasing exponentially. The challenge for the
smart community is to find a way for these communities to allow more contacts
with greater efficiency, more personalised and human, with more trust. Smart
technology can help engage citizens, non-governmental organisations,
businesses and the academic community in rising to the challenges and
solving the problems, a community that is greater than the sum of its
parts, a hub of innovation and economic growth, liveable, sustainable
and resilient. The digital transition presents a big opportunity to invent
new tools (just witness the incredible growth of the social network) to
support this demand while being aware of the danger of substituting
physical by virtual contacts. The art is to increase physical contacts
through virtual tools.
