Video “A Walk in the smart city” (wandeling in de slimme stad) Betweterfestival 29 Sept. 2017

Recently I gave a talk (in Dutch) for the Betweterfestival in Tivoli/Vredenburg Utrecht about the increasingly dominant role of data in the ‘smart city’. The talk was called “A Walk in the smart city” (Een wandeling in de slimme stad). The talk was in Dutch.
