English term or phrase: smart citizens

Should we translate "smart" as in "smart cities = intelligente Städte" always as "intelligent"?
With smart government and smart citizens this does not seem to work.

"These smart cities will be built on the 8 parameters of Smart Energy, Smart Mobility, Smart Healthcare, Smart Technology, Smart Infrastructure, Smart Governance, Smart Buildings and Smart Citizens. "
