How Do We Locate the Smart City?

The first GPS locator we look at we could call the Smart City Locator. It tracks the logic of cities using Logic Models – based on Strategic Rational thinking. It depends on scientific and methodical Inquiry – Research and Development in other words.

It collects BIG DATA. It uses the Inquiry intelligence to notice patterns in the BIG DATA, design maps, select Vital Signs Monitors and Navigate the city’s neural networks for effectiveness and efficiency. The Strategy Locator can ultimately align connections and create a Meshwork of city operations that are Smart and responsively intelligent.

The Smart City Locator is produced originally by the Diversity Generator/ Business Innovators of the Human Hive and when its efficacy has been proven becomes the favorite functions used by the Resource Allocators/Civic Managers and Citizens who manage the internal functioning of the Human Hive – how are we doing in accumulating our 20 kg of honey per year (i.e. reaching our sustainability targets)?

It is also the locator used by Forager-Producers/Citizens to mark the implicit value exchange of their efforts – Do I have the basics of life? Do I have a job? Are the stores open? Do the buses run on time?
