‘Public Sector Technology’ in The Times

It looks at the emergence of Bristol as a leading advocate and achiever in smart city thinking and doing, tacking challenges and pioneering solutions:

‘Why Bristol’s a city of the future’.

There is also a short footnote box-out (please scroll down) on smart traffic management in the city where cycles outnumber cars – ‘Copenhagen’s Intelligent Infrastucture’.

New writing My latest piece for Eniday is now live, exploring a radical, innovative collaboration between industry and academia to create ‘smart’ bricks, which can recycle wastewater and generate electricity. As elements in ‘bioreactor walls’, each brick will contain a microbial fuel cell, filled with programmable synthetic microorganisms, putting good bugs to work in buildings. This reinvention of the humble construction component promises to unlock the potential of ‘Smart Bricks and Bioreactors’.
