A Vision of the Concept of the City in Light of the Evolution of Information and Communication Technology: A Comparative Study between Experts' Views and Urban Discourse in Local Saudi Newspapers

Auther : Ahmed Al-jarallah Sarah A. Al-ghamdi

The deep penetration of information and communication technologies into almost every aspect of contemporary urban life has led to many changes in the prevailing city concepts. With the diversity and thrust of the new largely empiricist concepts of techno city, a question has been raised whether all these new city terms would cause a confusion among professionals and the public in understanding and interpreting the characteristics of contemporary city and urban reality.
This study aims to address the ambiguity of 18 different technical concepts of contemporary city through carrying a view survey of 17 experts in the fields of urban planning and ICT about the concepts of contemporary techno city. Then compare it with the result of media discourse analysis of 194 articles in local newspapers of the same chosen concepts of techno city. Three different descriptive statistics standards were employed to test the disputed hypothesis: Chi square(X2), Paired T test, and Factor Analysis. The study classified the city concepts based on their clarity to experts and the public. Furthermore, it revealed the absence of significant differences between experts' approach and the results obtained from content analysis of the selected concepts in the newspapers. Eventually, the study sets to reach a vision towards the concept of contemporary techno city.
