Darwinism in a Smart City

The increasing digitalization of our society splits our world into different camps. People who can and want to cope with the digitalization and people who already have difficulty with the current developments.

The first group talks about the new options and admires every step forward in this field. Whereas the second group seems to find it an undesired development or keep describing it as a hype that will pass. ‘Everything will go back to the old days.’
