  • Manufactured Cities: A Case Study of the First Smart City in Brazil

    In 2017, ArchDaily Brazil reported that Smart City Laguna would become the first “smart city” in Brazil. With its inauguration scheduled for that same year, the venture opened with 1,800 units in its first phase, and in its final phase, 7,065 units divided between residential, commercial and technological uses.

    Located in the Croatá district of São Gonçalo do Amarante, the first Brazilian smart city occupies 815 acres directly connected to the federal highway BR-22, which crosses the states of Ceará, Piauí, and Maranhão, starting in Fortaleza towards Marabá, in Pará. Its location has economic reasons: the proximity to Pecém Harbor, in Fortaleza, the Pecém Steel Company (CSP) and the Transnordestina Railroad make Croatá a strategic hub that has been recently occupied by technological companies, becoming a “digital belt” a little over 50 kilometers from the state’s capital.

  • Over 65% of Brazilian rural schools lack internet access

    The digital divide between urban and rural schools in Brazil, captured in different studies throughout the years, has not changed. In fact, this gap might have even increased.

  • BR: Glimpsing the Future of E-Health Care From a Rio Favela

    Your doctor may not be the biggest fan of the coming electronic health care wave, but marrying mobile technologies with medical know-how has the potential to save lives, dramatically improve patient care, and slash significant costs, even in the poorest urban communities in the world, a new study finds.

    Researchers at the New Cities Foundation, a nonprofit organization in Paris that seeks to tackle the most intractable issues facing the world’s fastest-growing cities, joined by a small team of health-care workers from Rio de Janeiro, recently concluded an 18-month trial in one of the poorest parts of the city, the favela of Santa Marta, a community of 8,000. Santa Marta was chosen for its unique geography and its remoteness—the rows of shanty homes appear to tumble down this hillside community where, until recently, there was no sewage, running water, or electricity to the upper reaches of this slum community, and access to even basic health care for the sick and elderly almost always involves an arduous slog downhill and up again.

We form an intelligent, creative, resilient ecosystem, with humanity, sustainability and the use of technology in favor of citizens”, celebrated Mayor Rafael Greca.

  • Brasilien: Freie Software weiter auf dem Vormarsch

    Oscar Clarke, Geschäftsführer von Intel/Brasilien, und Ricardo Fernandes, Präsident bei Novell/Brasilien, sehen freie Software auf einem unaufhaltsamen Vormarsch in Brasilien.

Beide Firmen sehen dies als eine unmittelbare Reaktion auf die derzeitige Politik der Regierung, Ministerien und öffentliche Verwaltungen auf den Einsatz von freier und quelloffener Software zu verpflichten. Ermutigt durch diesen sichtbaren Trend hat Novell gestern Novell Linux Desktop (NLD) in Brasilien auf den Markt geworfen. Darin sind die wesentlichen Office-Komponenten wie Textverarbeitung, Internet-Tools und weitere Programme enthalten.
