The growing technologization of urban spaces has prompted changes in the way we understand cities. While the use of technology in cities was originally focused on improving administrative workflows, the growing number of applications, systems, and datasets available (or produced) by cities, has led scholars to conceptualize the city as a platform where multiple actors participate and interact. In this context, we want to discuss how such platforms can be adopted to manage common resources, to generate new forms of decentralized participation and to generate new dynamics between citizens, institutions and experts.
