As cities become smarter they generate and acquire an abundance of data, from traffic flow to energy usage to GPS locations and beyond. That data, however, is more than just numbers—it represents people, their lives and their activities. Join a discussion on how we can continue to improve the connectedness of our cities while designing around the complicated issues of privacy.
