Smart city technologies and figures of technical mediation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

With ICTs increasingly influencing the built environment, it becomes ever more important to analyse the impact of smart city technologies on citizens’ behaviour. To explore this impact, the philosophy of technical mediation is used. This philosophy implies that our way of living is always, to some degree, constituted and transformed by technologies. This study’s objective is to assess the applicability of Dorrestijn’s model of human-technology relationships when exploring the impact of smart city technologies on citizen’s behaviour. Based on Dorrestijn’s model of figures of technical mediation, an argumentative literature review is conducted and mediating effects of smart city technologies categorized.
