Smart cities stay safe and operate efficiently. Discover the smart technologies that keep your community connected. By incorporating information and communication technologies, smart cities can enhance the quality and performance of urban services. Learn how the collection, interpretation and application of data fuels progress in societies.
A smart city uses multiple sources of data to improve the lives of citizens and visitors. In addition, connected sensors and tech give real-time insights to aid city government, public and private companies. “Data science is the key – the secret sauce to optimizing services,” Cornelia Levy-Bencheton and Mike Barlow, “Smart Cities” Experts.
