Through the use of a wide range of real time digital sources, public agencies have new opportunities to analyze and anticipate community needs of all kinds. Increasingly, decision makers in local, regional and state governments around the world are using pervasive sensors and other technological means to model and assess the way public services and shared resources might be used more fairly and more efficiently. The initial promise of using big data to improve government operations and provide citizens with new opportunities to express their needs and reactions is now matched by growing concerns about individual privacy, cybersecurity and possible misuses of personal information and images.


The Big Data and Sustainable Cities Series will present lessons for practical decision-making by governments, businesses and NGOs. Policymakers, businesses and advocacy organizations around the world are developing innovative ways of using big data, artificial intelligence and new tools to analyze and display large amounts of real time data. This series seeks to develop a better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of these initiatives, and to generate more informed understanding of which interventions result in the most effective, responsive and sustainable results.
