Smart Life in the City

© T-Mobile

A panel discussion as part of the VIENNA BIENNALE 2015 in partnership with T-Mobile.

“Smart city” has become synonymous with the way in which urban development can be improved by using digital technology and mobile communication. Smart Life in the City sets this approach on its feet: how can city dwellers themselves make use of the opportunities that digital developments offer them? Examples of “smart life” range from the private utilization of solar power, hybrid urban transportation, 3D printing, and self-tracking for a more conscious lifestyle, to first-rate online education and personal entrepreneurship.

The following will discuss Smart Life in the City:

Ulrike Huemer, Chief Information Officer, Vienna City Administration
Gianluca Dianese, Smart City Project Pisa, Deutsche Telekom
Simon Niederkircher, Co-developer of the mini-power station “simon,” Ökostrom AG
Gerfried Stocker, Artistic Director, Ars Electronica
Christoph Thun-Hohenstein, Director, MAK; Initiator, VIENNA BIENNALE 2015
Andreas Bierwirth, CEO, T-Mobile Austria

Moderation: Corinna Milborn, Information Director, Puls 4


In the context of the event, which will take place in German and English, exhibits for a “smart life” will be on display.
