What is an Urban Cognitive System?

A system that changes the management and use of Identities as a new Utility. It allows one ‍‍‍to constantly monitor systems‘ statuses, and decide with flexibility when, where and how much you wish to switch on or off insights from people, sponta‍‍neously, from every citizen, with just a click, anywhere.

And thanks to our decentralised blockchain design, we can transform the uneasy relationship between residents and City staff. In fact, it's a new experience based on territorial communications, as intelligent bi-directional support, capable of activating an improved quality of life, and making cities more sensitive, vibrant, safe, and sustainable.

Users all have devices, but city operations can't wait for users. Cities struggle with having a good channel to exchange information from their tax-payers. Our research has encouraged‍‍‍ us to design a product that can work to understand Cities as a system of attitudes and intentions. A bottom-up appro‍‍‍ach is powerful because of its authenticity.  

The genome of cities is people (see my 2015 Canadian talk), Cities need today to gather varied urban information to make decisions every month. Many Cities in the world don't have an effective urban planning department or Chief Information Officer. 80% of Cities are medium-sized,‍‍‍‍‍‍ which makes for a great investment in not having brokers or untrusted data.

‍‍‍You see things; and you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say, ‘Why not’?‍‍‍

— George Bernard Shaw

Why now?

In many Cities, residents don't have a digital channel to exchange information with their employers. Corporations pay taxes,‍‍‍‍‍‍ but they don't have a fully-‍‍‍‍‍‍dedicated channel to help their employees to book City services.

All 4 of the above channels are basically the only way to interact with your City. Today the most advanced Cities in the world offer web services, but they don'‍‍‍t have a Census-ID to connect residents, corporations and City operations in one place.

— The reality of Urban planning today, in many parts of the world

Toronto, Copenhague, San Francisco, Paris they have urban planning department but they don't have a fully dedicated digital channel to reach their residents. We have been meeting several Cities in the world to confirm that Urban planning is centralised and census still a very old method to understand households. ‍‍‍‍‍‍

We have been in talks with firms having a very good understanding of Infrastructure like ARUP or AECOM. We have been fortunate to validate that they would like to have a tool like CityZeen to optimize actual service or re-diseing whole Cities which is the case in Latin America or Africa.‍‍‍‍‍‍
