Big Data and the City of Tomorrow
Round 1 Prompt:
A “smart city” leverages available technologies and innovations to enhance the living conditions of its residents. It focuses on integrating infrastructure, social and human capital, and disruptive technologies to build a sustainable economy and promote participatory governance. Recent estimates anticipate the global smart cities market size to reach $2.6 trillion by 2025. Rising demand for new solutions is expected to be influenced by factors such as growing urban populations, limited natural resources, and an increasing focus on environmental sustainability. As you think about these challenges and applications, what most excites you about how big data can create the city of tomorrow? What new business opportunities do you think might emerge?
