Understanding Big Data in Smart Cities

Understanding Big Data in Smart Cities

Step one in smart city planning is analyzing available data to discover opportunity areas that are immediately addressable. When looking through the lens of smart cities, sometimes data is able to solve problems without deploying any hard solutions but by simply identifying a disparity or solution. Data interoperability and protocols are not yet streamlined, but standards and solutions are in the works. Join us at Smart Cincy Summit on April 25th in Cincinnati, OH to discuss Big Data in Smart Cities, Connected Campuses, and Advanced Facilities.
