    Abstract:
    Toronto has become known for applying ‘smart’ solutions to modern urban problems. In 2014, the city was awarded the title of “Intelligent Community of the Year” by the Intelligent Community Forum for its array of technological answers to housing, transportation, and environmental issues. More recently, Waterfront Toronto has partnered with the Sidewalk Labs start-up to transform the city’s eastern waterfront into a ‘smart city’ hub. In their 198-page vision document, Sidewalk, a Google-derived company, lays out its plans to develop a futuristic socio-techno ecosystem along the Quayside and Portlands waterfront zones.
