The EBS Research Hub is pleased to share its latest publication entitled: Ethics of Using Smart City AI and Big Data: The Case of Four Large European Cities, co-authored with Mark Ryan from the University of Twente in the Netherlands. It was published in the Orbit Journal which focuses on Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) to ensure the sustainability, acceptability and desirability of research processes and outputs.

The case study offers valuable insights into the development of smart cities in a European context: including the use and implementation of SIS in urban environments, what kinds of ethical issues are evaluated in the literature and how they contrast and diverge from those faced by professionals in practice. It is hoped that this case study will offer practitioners, policymakers, smart city organisations, and private ICT companies interesting observations about a more ethically-responsible approach towards SIS implementation in smart city projects.
