[Video] Thinking Cities

Ericsson’s Networked Society Program has produced a second documentary, which is available for viewing by ReadWriteWeb readers a day before it is released publicly. The documentary series and program are attempts by the Swedish telecom company to investigate larger ideas, ones that affect how technology is created and used. Here’s how Ericsson describes the focus of the latest film.

“The world population is expected to soar to more than 9 billion people by 2050, with roughly 70% living in cities. At the same time, ICT is extending its reach. These parallel trends are intersecting at a time when the world faces serious economic, environmental, and social challenges in achieving a more sustainable development. “Thinking Cities” explores the challenges and opportunities of urbanization in the Networked Society. To produce this film we interviewed some of the world’s leading city thinkers including: Geoffrey West, physicist and professor at Santa Fe Institute; Mathieu Lefevre of New Cities Foundation and Carlo Ratti, Director of MIT Senseable City Lab.”

The first documentary, “On the Brink,” is available to view on YouTube.
