A double take on 'smart' markets

The smart home and smart cities markets – aimed at making our technologies, homes and cities more intelligent – are set to double by 2017, a new report says.

The world’s population is still growing fast, and our cities are absorbing the majority of that growth. Naturally, rapid urbanisation comes with a variety of challenges and problems. What we might call a ‘movement’ to address those is the instilling of higher ‘intelligence’ in urban systems and processes. You’ve probably now gathered that this is referred to as the ‘Smart Cities’ movement.
