I'll add that many Southeastern Americans, who are the butt end of a host of jokes, have more horse sense than most of the world combined. Their simplicity often gets overlooked as stupidity, which is a mistake many people make.
I am not exactly sure about how those patents work, but as far as I know Philips, a Dutch company, is the worlds largest applicant for patents. If they file for a patent, they will probably do it in Eindhoven. But does that mean, that the technology they are applying for is developed in the same city, or can they apply for patents of developments from research centers, university cooperation projects etc around the world at the location of their headquarter? I think even though the legal "home" of the intellectual property right is Eindhoven, not necessairly has there been any smart person from the city involved in the research.

Love Paris, but I wouldn't say it's smart?

It has a couple of ghettos and lower socioeconomic areas with poverty here and there. But I don't know.

Paris is a good place for studies and parisians are well educated -well the city is full of retards too like everywhere... - .
The human capital is one of the strength of Paris / Ile de France. And even in the north of Paris, what you call "ghettos", people are well educated.
And that's one of the sadest thing, they are educated but don't find jobs...


I won't jump to the conclusion that it's the smartest city on earth. But probably has its place in a good top20 / top10.
Normal Sup' (L'Ecole Normale Superieure) is the school with the highest number of nobels ..... per capita.

Ah, I see. Thanks for the links.

Funny, because Sydney also has these lower socioeconomic areas containing a lot of people with UNI degrees, and they too are not bothered finding a job.

In terms of IQ probably somewhere in East Asia or Israel/ city with high Jewish/ East Asian population.
Cambridge is definitely the smartest place in the U.S IMO.

Based on current IQ tests (which are accurate but with biases towards the group that invented it) it would be anywhere with the highest Jewish or East Asian population. Western cities with significant educated populations would also be at the top. So Tel Aviv, Tokyo, Seoul, London, San Francisco, Paris, NYC, etc.

It can't be measured.

The fact that are many Universities in a small area suggests more Professors, Scientists, Phd Students etc, along with science parks and centres for research. Schools and eucational standards and attainment are also important, as are access to libraries and other research facilities. Fast Wifi internet is also very useful.
