On Wednesday, we paid a visit to the Compass exhibition in Jubilee Square in Leicester, part of the British Science Festival taking place this week. We chatted with some people who had been to see the exhibition about what their experience of Leicester has been as a Smart City, and who technology is changing the way we perceive our services and the way we do things. Our community reporters were ZamZam, Amrin, Bindu and Madina.
