Using technology to improve society

As more cities start to realise the benefits of using technology to improve areas as diverse as healthcare, education and crime prevention, we are beginning to edge closer to a more socially inclusive ‘e-topia’ Cutting the cost of looking after older people by a fifth. Bringing down violent crime outside pubs and bars by a third. Being able to diagnose diseases at patients’ bedsides just by having them breathe into a machine. These are all ways that smart cities in Britain are transforming the lives of ordinary citizens.
