 SCP E26: The Connected Soldier, with Richard Kidd | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1661

In this episode of The Smart City Podcast, I had a really fascinating conversation with the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the US Army, Strategic Integration Mr Richard Kidd.

He also gives us an overview of his presentation at the IEEE GreenTech Conference and how the army is pioneering with Smart Technology with the "connected solider", autonomous vehicles and building management. He also talks about changing our focus from fixed sensors to moving ones that are already available, and importantly always keeping privacy and security front of mind.

 SCP E24: Let's Talk about Terms, with Zoe Eather | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1671

In this episode of The Smart City Podcast, I tell you what I've been up to and what's coming up. And then I also go through some of the terms we've been using which hopefully is useful for your understanding. One that I forgot to mention was BIM which  is basically 3D modelling but with so much more detail about the components of the structure or infrastructure that can be utilised in asset management, quality assurance, community consultation and the full life cycle of that product, amongst many other things. So you can use BIM in combination with VR and AR which I'll talk about a bit in this episode. Also, I mention Colin Wright's episode on blockchain but actually it's on Bitcoin which is still useful to understand. Enjoy!

 SCP E23: Being Nimble and of Service, with Chelsea Collier | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1697

In this episode of The Smart City Podcast, I had an awesome conversation with Chelsea Collier. Chelsea shares some really interesting insights from her Eisenhower Fellowship where she explored Smart Cities across America and China. This led to her to launching Digi.City so that she could share what she was learning in real-time. Digi.City is now a platform for the exploration of Smart City technology and Policy. Chelsea talks about why she kept Digi.City as a brand and didn't "expand" it to a full-blown company, which was super interesting for me as I'm going through some of the same thinking right now with this podcast. Chelsea and I also have some great conversations about tech, collaboration and how Smart Cities have to be a long term investment.
