IOT and Big Data–Creating The Spine for Smart Cities

We were excited to see a recent announcement from entrepreneur, philanthropist and ex-major of New York City Mike Bloomberg’s Bloomberg Philanthropies, in collaboration with the Aspen Institute, on its first global initiative to help leading cities prepare for the advent of autonomous vehicles.

Driverless vehicles are certainly a cool topic, and one with great potential to alleviate city transportation challenges – just one area for how cities can become smart. Mike Bloomberg is a leading thinker on the issues of innovative government especially for cities around the world.

In his own words, “For the first time, cities are home to most of the world’s population. By 2050 it is projected that three of every four people will live in cities. This historic shift presents challenges and opportunities. On the one hand, city leaders must find ways to use limited resources to serve growing numbers of people. On the other, cities are drivers of progress and innovation, and hold the solution to many of the pressing issues we face – from confronting climate change and improving public health to creating jobs in a changing global economy. By helping city governments innovate, engage the public, make the most of their resources and turn bold new ideas into policy, we can improve the lives of billions of people.”
