A central concern in smart city systems is the occurrence of function creep: the practice where tools designed with a specific use in mind, quickly get used for other goals as well. Actions such as software updates, cyberattacks, over-ambitiousness at government agencies, or hostile take-overs can change smart city systems to work beyond their intended goals. Which intervention should be used to prevent this? And how we can easily spot whether undesired use of smart city systems actually occurs?
