It's more efficient to invest money in highly populated zones or financial centres to transform them into smart districts than other parts of the cities so regular neighbourhoods could become secondary or tertiary states of the smart city implementation project thus creating more social differences between residents of the same city.

Also, regular gentrification of some zones adds more pressure to old/poorer people to move to the suburbs. So highly populated zones also become richer and more prone to technology use creating a double gentrification effect, that you can call technological gentrification if you want to.
