This short article, published both in English and French, provides a brief overview of urban technology, arguing that the term 'technology' is increasingly defined very narrowly as digital and communication technology. This serves the purpose of a growing 'Innovation Machine' - i.e. a constellation of actors who stand to gain by introducing these technologies, whilst ignoring key urban issues such as housing, inequality and - sometimes - basic sanitation, all of which could benefit from investment in different technologies and/or in questioning urban processes that have nothing to do with technology.
