How Will Big Data Enable the Future of Smart Cities? Green Drinks September Forum

As the world begins to look beyond the now almost-obsolete ‘Eco’ Cities concept towards ‘Smart’ Cities as the model for our sustainable urban future, more advanced information management tools and data are needed to provide for such cities’ public amenities, infrastructure and all kinds of services. This is where big data comes in. By implementing monitoring and security systems to generate, process, and utilize data on cities’ water, electricity, transportation, and other necessities we could perhaps lay the foundation towards more energy-efficient, climate-resilient and healthier cities.

Join us at Arup Shanghai, to learn about how big data is the next step for building and achieving the Smart City dream.
