The digital, or perhaps in this case "intelligent" technologies that are to shape all areas of society  in the future, especially our cities, need regulation. After all, these kinds of technologies inform, decide and control — but in whose interest and with which objectives in mind? Recently, there has been increasing thought and debate about the possibilities of democratic data governance "from below". Citizens should (also) be able to decide what intelligent, data-driven machines are used for by consciously sharing their data. Can such approaches be a model for the sustainable digitalization of cities and municipalities and provide a counterweight to the data monopolies of large corporations? What could democratic data governance in Berlin look like?

In the fifth edition of Wandelwecker, our morning feature for a social and ecological metropolis, we discuss these questions with two renowned experts.

Who is setting the direction for Berlin's digital transformation?
