AI has already surpassed humans in many activities requiring thoroughness, accuracy, and patience. Which doesn’t prevent it from stacking up at such elementary things as telling a turtle from a rifle. With the consequences it can have (and sometimes already has: from suspicion of a criminal offense to traffic fatalities), some experts even hesitate whether it is Artificial Intelligence or Artificial Stupidity we should fear more.

Vibrant showcases, repetitious rows of shelves, enticing muzak, smiling assistants... A precise picture of a shopping paradise, a place where you readily change your cash for 1001 something, as if enchanted by a magic wand of a mighty wizard. Well, it seems no — not anymore.

The modern world is moving to cities. Urban population is predicted to reach 66 % from total by 2050. As a result, the cities themselves are evolving trying to meet the new challenges: traffic density, ecological issues, and social unsustainability. The application of innovative technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and the internet of things (IoT) makes them ‘smart’. And the demands of contemporaneity make the time we live in the age of smart cities. Open and Agile Smart Cities network counts up to 100 smart cities in 23 countries so far, and China is planning 290 by 2040. So, what are they like — those cities of the future?
