Alessio Antonini: It all starts with a question
Both Alessio, and KMI, have been the ideal collaborators for us to test citizen-centric projects with meaning. Milton Keynes has established itself as one of the leading smart cities in the UK, and is becoming famous for having delivery robots, piloting self-driving pods circling it’s already famous roundabouts system. Alessio is a PhD computer scientist, specialised on civic technologies and crowdsourcing, previously technical lead of Europe’s WeGovNow platform and now leads research at MK Insight. We caught up on how citizens and cities can set up their smart cities initiatives, so it moves from ‘just data’ to meaningful impact.
