Sviluppo urbano e nuove tecnologie. Il ruolo della pubblica amministrazione


The impact of new technologies in our society, and above all of digital technology, is evident: economists speak of revolution 4.0, capable of generating not only new potential for replacing human labor through machines, but also new models communication and development of the person, with a significant effect in the life of individuals.

Most of the world population now has an internet connection and is therefore equipped with the related devices that allow access to the network. The use of new technologies has changed the forms of social communication, but not only: institutional communication too often uses social platforms, from the synthetic tweet to youtube channels.

It is a phenomenon that attracts the attention of scholars under a plurality of profiles: if mathematicians and computer scientists focus on experimenting with new technological tools, sociologists are attracted by the relational dynamics that these communicative methods release. On the other hand, jurists focus much of their interest on the consequences of digital technology in terms of the protection of rights, first of all the right to privacy; without denying that the new systems of social communication can come to alter (if they have not already done so) the very foundations of democracy, only if one thinks of the possibilities of manifesting political consensus through social media, up to the most well-known forms of profiling of available data (Cambridge Analytica), to manipulate the political debate and guide the formation of consensus.
