Smart cities have always been seen as a chance to apply new digital technologies in every single detail in the life of its inhabitants, while neglecting harmful impacts of technology such as internet addiction, and related digital diseases related to the extensive use of smart technologies on the health of human beings. In light of that, this paper is a trial to start a new vision for smart cities as human-cities with regard to sustainable, environmentally-friendly, and emotionally-reliable-based aspects. This new vision could be called H-SEED (human-sustainable environmental emotional development). It assumes that establishing new indicators for this new vision, H-SEED, gives a chance to recognize how a certain city or development could be H-SEED. The main objective of this paper is to create a new scope of fifth generation smart cities called H-SEED cities which depend on a human-centric approach. It adopts an analytical deductive methodology, and is divided into two parts. First, it reviews conventional trends in smart cities through outlining their history. Second, it shows the assumed established H-SEED indicators, on an existing or new city development. It concludes several composite indicators establish social spectrum to promote human social infrastructure, promote human green infrastructure and Hemotionality.
